Vacation homes are great but you’ve got to do a lot of work to get them all set up. Go to Direct.TV for TV channels, paint the walls and even buy food for the pantry – but what about the extra steps you need to take to protect your catamaran while you’re away? Here are our thoughts on the best vacation boat maintenance
Hire Someone: Just like you pay someone to come every couple of weeks and mow your yard you should be able to find someone in town to check on your boat just as often. Have them crank it up and wipe it down just to keep it clean.
Get a Cover: The best protection from the elements is going to be a poly-plastic cover which shouldn’t run you more than a couple hundred bucks. Put it on before you leave for any length of time.
Haul it Out: If you’re particularly concerned, get your boat out of the water. Park it at a dry dock marina or get a lift for your dock – even tow it home with you if you must.
