No deal like that around here I can tell you that.
You know, I also pay $900 a season for a slip and that is the yacht club price.

Find a better marina or mechanic.

Why would they shrink it to store it indoors? That doesn't make sense.

Its is a pole barn basically. So in order to keep dust and animals out.

Man, when I was a mechanic, I was cutting the shrink wrap off a boat one time, and a racoon had gotten in there, and he went haywire when I crawled into the boat. I moved pretty quickly out of the boat, screaming like an adolescent girl the whole way! Lol...

I have heard a story about a yacht that happened to last year.

Actually last year was the first year for my MC in storage where as the years before were the different I/O's I had. And since my interior was getting done and other work they stored it in my mechanics shop.

To my surprise I haven't actually been billed for last years post season service yet.

Probably will do the same thing this year.

Projects for the winter include powder coating windshield frame and tinting glass and plumbing in ballast.

Next year is going to be awesome.
