Cost of storing 40' Powercat

Hi, new to the forum. Researching costs for 40' Powercat that we plan on using 5 months or so per year. Haven't bought one yet, was wondering the cost of winterizing, wrapping and storing on the east coast maybe Florida, Maryland? Plan to use during the winter months, store in the summer. Have owned cruisers in the past but not a Cat. Thanks in advance for the replies!!

Re: Cost of storing 40' Powercat

In Florida locations like Titusville (Westland Yard), Labelle, Ft. Pierce (Cracker Boys), or Green Cove Springs prices are reasonable. Winterizing is a minimal activity in Florida and usually accomplished by leaving a light on in the engine room in North Florida. Shrink-wrapping is rarely thought of as worthwhile in Florida. It's often wise to close the boat well by sealing vents and hanging a few bags of "Damp-Rid" about to prevent mold or mildew.
..........wait!.... You said that you will be using the boat in the winter! You'll likely be in the Islands! .....Forget the light bulb!

Looking for Fountaine or PDQ in the 36-40 range. Have a year or two before we can actually commit so want to get some realistic numbers before jumping in!

Go with the PDQ... Much better build quality!

Well I guess it would make sense to not have to wrap it in FLA. And yes your spot on, hope to be in the islands in winter, Vermont winters are getting longer every year especially when thinking of alternative to being on a boat cocktail in hand! Thanks for the recommendations!
