Storing a boat throughout the year presents a unique set of challenges. From unpredictable spring storms to frigid winter temperatures, there are things for boat owners to be wary of all year long. Even in the summer, the time of year that boats are made for, certain conditions are bad for boats.
Now there’s a product, readily available residentially and commercially, to remedy many of these conditions. If you’ve never considered acrylic as a viable option for your marina, it’s time to take a look at this revolutionary material!
Naturally Bright Patio Covers are the perfect product for boat dock covers at public marinas! Acrylic is one of the strongest materials, pound for pound, that you can buy. Its durability and strength are both huge advantages when you’re in a business that sits directly on the water. Water, as you know, can take a toll on natural and man-made materials, so the equipment and facilities at your marina need to be tough enough to stand up to harsher-than-average outdoor conditions.
Add in the sun’s unrelenting rays and heat, and you have a severe environment that can cause boats that are stored at your marina to fade or dry rot due to the extremely high heat and constant humidity. Within just 5 years, boats can look severely weather beaten and faded if they aren’t properly stored. Knowing how to care for a boat when it isn’t being used is one of the most important parts of running a successful marina. Customers will come back year after year and refer others when they find a place they can trust to care for their property all year long.
Canvas boat covers won’t last, and they’ll develop unsightly mold, mildew, and stains when they are exposed to the elements. They might protect the boats they cover, but the outward appearance isn’t nice to look at. Some marinas choose to cover boats with canvas, but they end up replacing these covers all the time. In the end, canvas covers are temporary solutions that seem inexpensive at first, but they end up costing the marina a lot of money replacing stained, dingy ones. Those expenses ultimately get passed along to the customer.
You can’t ignore the fact that, as a public business, you’ll want to impress customers and potential customers with the way your marina looks. The logic most boat owners have says that if you take care of your property, you’ll take good care of theirs, too. You can’t blame them for thinking this way, yet despite your best efforts, it can be really hard to do upkeep on your marina facilities.
Luckily, when you choose a Naturally Bright Patio Cover product for your marina, you’ll have virtually NO maintenance to worry about! Marinas that use acrylic boat covers and boat dock covers have many advantages over those that don’t. A maintenance-free storage area is one of them!
With an acrylic boat dock cover or boat storage area, you’ll never need to waste time cleaning the outside surface of the acrylic. Because Naturally Bright Patio Covers are finished with baked enamel, the outer surface of the acrylic is unbelievably smooth. This unique paint finish makes it virtually impossible for dirt, mildew, or any other potentially staining material to hang on. The secret to an unstainable, maintenance-free surface is just that simple!
We’ve seen marinas use all sorts of materials for their boat covers and dock covers. We mentioned the drawbacks of canvas earlier, but aluminum and wood aren’t much better options. Aluminum – any metal, in fact – will trap heat in the storage area and be hot to the touch. Plus, it will fade after a few years in the sun. Wood may be good for building docks, but its use at the marina stops there. A boat dock cover built out of wood will be heavy and cumbersome-looking.
Acrylic really is the best choice for your commercial marina. Naturally Bright Patio Covers produces lightweight yet durable materials that reflect the sun’s rays and heat. No other material can do that! Our acrylic panels, supported by a specially designed aluminum frame, are the most reliable product on the market, and they are extremely useful for boat storage!
