Mag Red's new dry dock

Since I've run out of room for toys......the Mastercraft had to live outside I decided to build a little cover for her so the birds wouldn't crap all over the cover. Unfortunately, the project came a weeeeeeeee bit over budget

Looks great. I don't know any project that I have done that wasn't way out of scope and budget.

I'm in the same shape and I am considering building something similar. What kind of price range can I expect?

Let me add up the receipts Looks like a little shy of $1000 And that isn't including 9 sheets of plywood that I had laying around for the past 3 years! The post hole digger was $150, so if your ground isn't filled with roots, you could easily do that by hand. The roofing was about $320. The structure is 12' wide x 22' long

Damn that is nice for an outdoor deal! Was the slab already there?
Is that a MC "towing/mooring cover" or an aftermarket?

The slab was put in the beginning of Summer but the birds were having a field day with the cover The cover is the Mastercraft mooring cover, but I'll be damned if I can tow with that thing on.

Well the ONLY time I tow with the cover is when it's so nasty out that one detriment outweighs the other. SO a "towing" cover isn't that important to me anyway, but I did wonder if that's what the new MC cover looked like
nice work on the drydock man!

So Mag-Red, what kind of covadents would you break if you were to put heavy gauge vinyl around the outsides to keep the sun and snow out?

Thanks for the figures. My garage is full and I need something to put my boat in or under. I have looked at the portable garages but I am not sure they will be as good as something that I could build. Great looking boat and place to store it.
