a problem on a large scale.Cold air is incredibly drying. Water can actually sublimate from liquid to gas below zero.

Now that we have dropped below freezing for the long term I look at the commercial storage units for fiberglass cruisers and can't help think the storage businesses know what they are doing.

Each boat is wrapped in shrink wrap and each is outside. Snow load is the big culprit and tautness of the wrap is paramount. Inside you have a roof to substitute for wrap.

Sure there is a peril. Rodents. Been there and found stuff in my kayak that was nesting material from other ex boxes mixed with mouse pee. Once in early May we dug out the boats and found birds nesting in one, but that was from a Wenonah canoe buried in twelve feet of snow in 2001..no we had not checked all winter.
