    Default Thawing out a boat

    Looking for a place to thaw out a 16' Jon boat, need about 24' x 8' heated short term storage.
    Is there a facility in Anchorage where a guy can do this. I did not get the craft covered up before the first snow, but remove most of it by hand.
    Any ideas or leads would be appreciated.

    Get a large tarp and a space heater ,cover and get the heater under the boat should be able to get it cleaned out in short order. Good luck.

    If you could hold for a couple of days I have the space. Just need to get some brakes installed on my enclosed trailer and get it out of the way. Could possibly store it for the winter, heated.

    Hey, I thought that was your wife's parking space! (from your previous brake post). Giving away your wife's space could make for a long winter...

    Well after her miss step on Monday I am all good, she even started my car this morning as I had to leave earlier then usual. What did she do????? She forgot to go get the brakes on her break We are all good now, have all the parts in hand, nuts and bolts are soaking, now I need to find the energy. Maybe a sweetheart back massage will help me sleep better and I can stay up longer tomorrow and finish it.

    Did I tell you guys how much I love my wife......man I love it when I get one up, now for how long.

    Yup: "Boat, meet tarp and Mr. Herman Nelson.".

    You could take it to a carwash afterward and wash it down with hot water.

    Thanks for the responses gang. Procrastination finally got the job done, so far the only good thing to come out of this last thaw last weekend. I appreciate the advice and the offers. You folks make this forum worth while. Matt
