I am all for making money but a 700 percent increase is BS and I would report them as well.
Gas and water are completely diff from needing to take care of a toy. I would GIVE people gas, water, anything they needed. Boats are very diff.

Now I see noting wrong with that price. I am sorry maybe I am the minority here when I think $3200 is ridiculous to store a boat for two days.

Default Storage racks

From my experience I/O boat buildings fare poorly in hurricanes. They typically become the 1'st place the news infobabes chopper above to WOW us with the damage coverage. They then go to the older trailer parks, then Marinas, ......Scott's house, etc. = :>)

Yea, I mean what good would a trailer be if you have a lift.....

Most people who own nice hi-perf boats in south fl have a lift, a marina they work with, a trailer AND a storage set up in a safe block building a ways in from the beach/water areas.
