What Questions are on the Storage Agreement Form?

In short, what maintenance and/or repairs do you want, any issues you want resolved, and the make of your boat so we can identify it among your watercraft.

  • The name of the manufacturer of your boat (i.e., "Four Winns", or "Cobalt"), OR model so that we can verify we are making plans for the correct boat.

  • How is your boat/jet ski arriving at our facilities--trailer or no trailer? This helps us prepare for your trailer or to bring ours if we are hauling it out of the water from your dock. Or, if are we driving our boat to your dock.

  • A date you would you like to begin storing your boat. This can be changed at any time by email or phone call to us. 

  • Do you want your boat washed? Waxed? We want to know by the time we receive your boat. If you want it waxed, we will wash it before storing. We generally wax boats over the winter, so please let us know by the time the boat arrives at Lanes End Marine.

  • Do you have a freshwater system onboard? You do, if you have a toilet, sink, live well, or ballasts that require water. If so, do you want them winterized and then de-winterized? You can also choose to keep it in its winterized state if you do not use them. There is a place on the form to indicate exactly how you want it handled.

  • Tell us about problems or concerns with your boat this summer, and our experienced technicians can diagnose and repair. Report any odd noises, or difficult operating conditions you experienced so we can look into it.

  • Not sure what your engine needs? We will research the boat's Lanes End service history and make recommendations based on Tim's expertise on boat engines. If you would like us to call or email you with our recommendations before doing them, check "Contact me with Recommended Maintenance". 

  • Recommendations will include what your engine type requires for best performance. Common recommendations are changing the Engine Oil & Filter every year. For Inboard engines, change Transmission Fluid every two years. For most engine types, we recommend a Tune-Up every other year, and doing Water Pump service on alternating years from the Tune-up. These are the more expensive of regular maintenance services, and that will spread that cost over more than one year.

Retrieval from Storage

General Facts about Storage

at Lanes End Marine Service & Storage

How to Retrieve my Boat or Jet Ski from Storage: In March, go to our website and complete our Spring Launch Card online. By this, you will request an appointment and how you want to get your boat. Please have up to three dates in mind, as we ask for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice dates. Appointments are made in the order we receive them, and the month of May fills very quickly once we release the Launch Card for completion. Especially Friday and Saturday appointments.

What is the Storage Removal Process: Launch appointments are placed in the order we receive them. We can “launch” up to six boats each day, six days per week. On the “Launch Date” it will be pulled from storage and serviced based on needs and requests. We do not do general service on boats over the winter.

Detailing is not currently done by Lanes End Marine technicians, but we can work with a marine detailer of your choice, or we can recommend some. We do a cursory interior clean for free, and you can request exterior wash and wax at a per foot price. See Rate Sheet for pricing.

Progress Reports on Service: Since we only perform the most complex or lengthy work over the winter, we will not have anything to report on most boat’s service. Maintenance work is generally done on the Launch Date and is not even started before we receive your Launch Card.

Winter Storage rate covers one year, from September 1 to August 31. Vessels that do not go out in summer will not incur additional charges.  However, once your boat leaves storage, it is subject to new storage rates and contract. Arriving for storage prior to September 1st may result in a Day Storage fee, which is calculated per day. 

Shrink Wrapping Boats is not done on boats that are stored at Lanes End Marine Service. However, we can arrange it for you at our location if you are storing your boat yourself. This is an Off-Road service only. We do not store boats in shrink wrap.

Outside Boat or Jet Ski Storage is not offered currently at Lanes End Marine Service.

Advantages to Inside Storage:

  • Boats are stored in one of several large boat storage sheds.

  • Protection from the elements.

  • Prevents snow and moisture collecting in the hidden areas of your boat.

  • Protection from heavy snow or ice crushing the boat's protective cover. 

Prevents possible internal boat damage.


We bet you can't find a better place or better pricing on

inside winter storage.
