    Why not just get it shrink wrapped?

    If we knew where you lived (snowload, wind etc.) and how big and permanent of a structure you want, we will be better equipped for suggesting how you spend your money. Smaller, lighter structures like this https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/p...uct-_-1063468&gclid=CjwKCAjwvNXeBRAjEiwAjqYhF or if you have a lot of room, more to cover and higher snow/wind load demands I suggest something larger like this Calhoun.

    I bought the 25' version of this last spring and been using it to store my 2017 212x.

    It has worked really well. I do have to fold down the tower and even with the tower folded down I have to have someone in the boat to help the door over the tower light and board racks as I back it in and pull it out but not a big deal. Once inside you can unfold the tower and set it back in the up position if you want to. I went with this version because it has the wind and snow rated heavy duty frame and it is the same frame they use for their steel buildings. My thought was I'd use the polyethylene cover that comes with it for 2-3 years as it holds up and then when it starts to fail I'll take it off and install steel on it.

    That's great to know, this one was on my short list but was concerned about the 8' door height. Glad you can coax the door over the folded tower without hurting anything.
