Boat owners who keep their boats moored know all too well what a hassle it can be to regularly remove accumulated plants, algae and sea-creatures from their hulls - a process known as antifouling. Motors, Legs and Props benefit even more from keeping out of the water, especially salt water. The only solution to keeping modern high performance boats in their intended condition is by keeping them out of the water. Neales offers outdoor (open) and covered spaces for most trailer boats. Keeping your vessel both out of the water and undercover is an investment in its future resale value.
