Brownell Boat Stands Offers Online Boat Storage Course

Brownell emphasizes safety with this online course designed to teach you to safely and correctly store your boat on land.

Storing a boat on land requires knowledge and experience, for the safety of those involved, as well as for the long-term well-being of the boat being stored.  As we’ve written before, an improperly stored boat can be damaged by misplaced blocking or improper stand placement. 

Out of concern for safety, Brownell Boat Stands, leading maker of boat stands (a.k.a, poppets, jackstands) offers an online course to teach boaters  how to properly block and store vessels. Upon successful completion of the 45-minute course, students will earn a certificate.

I’ll say that this knowledge is required whether you do it yourself or hire the work done. Either way you want the job done right. 

A number of Boating editors have worked in boat yards and have experience blocking boats. We’ll be attending this course as a refresher, and reporting back to you with our thoughts after we complete it.

In the meantime, review the information in the following press release, exercise caution whenever storing a boat, and look for our followup story to come.
