Whether it’s time, money, or fuel efficiency, dry rack storage could save you a lot more than you think!
The first thing many boat owners want to know when considering dry rack storage is predictable: How much is it going to cost them? For many, the thought of dry rack storage seems out of budget. What some boat owners may not realize is that it could be more cost efficient than trailering their boat!
Here are some of the ways dry rack storage can save you a ton of, well, everything:
Maintain your MPG
When trailering a boat, one not only has to worry about the ever-changing price of fuel, but also the effects trailering could have on their vehicle. In most cases, every 100 pounds of extra weight diminishes MPG by 2%! This means that with a typical 21 foot boat and trailer weighing 3,500 pounds, a boater can expect to see a 50% drop in their vehicle’s MPG! With dry rack storage, boaters have the ability to maintain their vehicle’s MPG, which means saving money at the pump.
Keep Your Family Vehicle
Another reason dry rack storage can be more beneficial than trailering is that boaters won’t need to worry about trading in the family sports car for a diesel truck! Dry rack storage eliminates the need of a vehicle capable of trailering a boat. With dry rack storage, boat owners simply need to place a call one hour ahead of their anticipated arrival, and by the time they reach the marina their boat will be ready to go! Boaters that keep their vessels in rack storage can save around two hours per trip by skipping the boat ramp. Talk about cost efficient! After all, what’s more valuable than a person’s time?
