    Hey Florida guys, I need some help!

    Ok, so me and a buddy were talking and we want to try and bring our skis to Florida for the Winter months. I am trying to figure something out so we can just leave them there and fly down a few weekends and ride.
    So my question is, what's my best/safest bet for storing these while we are not there.
    We could purchase a double trailer and then leave them in a storage facility. I would also be open to leaving them at a marina that has jet docks, I would rather not leave them in the water.
    I prefer South Florida and the East coast as we would like to do a ride over to Bimini. I am open to anything I supposed though.
    If anyone has any info or opinions they want to share, please post them up.

    I would say put the ski's in a storage place like U-haul, etc...It'll probably run you about $120 a month, but its the easiest and safest way to do it.

    Yea any storage place would be good, and if I was you just check the areas, and get a nicer area where the storage place would be too. You dont want it in a bad neighborhood, bc I have heard some stuff about storage places having entire boats motors stolen before.

    Storage in a safe location is key. Don't forget you will need a tow vehicle when you get down. It's hard to find a rent-a-car with a hitch.... I've tried.

    Find a in/out storage at a marina. They put it on racks under cover with security and then just a call and they will put it in the water. No tow vehicle needed.

    Thanks guys. I am leaning on a secure storage facility. Just fly down and make sure what I rent has a hitch.
    Please keep posting anything you suggest. Still plenty of time!

    Splash academy - $250 per month, I believe they store r trailer for free.
    Any gated "secured" storage with key access. "Value store It" is secure all around Miami & fort lauderdale - $105.
    Guard in bad da hood is better then no guard in a "safe" hood!
