Conventional wisdom is that the same chemistry that caused your fittings to become unstuck in fresh water can cause blistering of fiberglass hulls though I had no problems moving my boat to fresh water.
How much work are you planning on doing to the boat while you wait for your schedual to clear? It make a difference as to where you will want to store it. If you have a lot of hull work or other major refit
then moving it to your barn might make sense but otherwise I would look for dry storage
somewhere near the water. Dry storage
rates are usually around $4 per boat foot. So for a 40 foot boat you are only looking at $160 - $200 a month. Much cheaper than a difficult move inland. The difficulty is finding a storage lot with access to AC for tools, easy access, security
, and an easy attitude toward ''projects'. Every other boater wants that spot too.
The problem you are going to have is that such spots do not need to advertise. Word gets around and they usually have waiting lists. A car tour of the waterfront and some asking around is necessary to turn up some prospects.
have a spot on the hard
for tenents to do light maintance on their boats. As you'll be needing a marina slip anyway and most marinas
have a wait list so it might pay to get a slip early. I did all the maintance on my 26 footer on the hard
at the marina and as long as you didn't make a mess and kept your kit stowed nobody ever said anything. There was not access to power but the security
was excellent and access was 24/7, a real bonus when commuting to the worksite.
So many choices.
