Looking for suggestions from those with experience. I'm in the process of getting a nice used Phoenix 618. It has been well taken care of and I want to keep it that way. My garage is 21' from drywall to garage door so I do t think that will work. My previous boat stayed in the yard behind the house on grass. It was covered and didn't have the electronics and carpet like the bass boat has. The gate I had built isn't any good, so I would have to redo it. My HOA says no biats in the backyard, but no one follows the rules in my neighborhood. My next door neighbor is in violation of about 5 rules. I'm talking junk car backyard and front curb, live goat in garage, and grass constantly a foot tall. So I could put a nice 12' sliding gate and pour a concrete slab for it to sit on, but the sun and local cats have me concerned. The boat will have a cover and I can run a cord to charge batteries. Ok there is biat storage options but they are about $160 a month without electric from what I have seen. I live I. laredo and wanted to fish our local casa Blanca lake and Falcon on my days off. I can keep my boat in Zapata (about $100 a month) but it's an hour away and I won't have that quick access to drool on it and fondle it when I want. What would some of y'all do? That $150 a month would be nice to buy lures or other stuff in general. Thanks for any helpful info

Seems like rules is not a problem, a cover will keep the sun off, and there's ways to keep the critters out.
I'd go with having the boat where you can drool and keep it nice,.. fish
