    Eh, I live in a pretty low crime area. I know anything is possible, but that's the least of my concern. Shoot, right now my boat is on the hoist on my lake lot, and there's nothing between it and the street because it's just an easement on the water. I have my trailer there, tubes on the trailer, life jackets, gas cans, deck box with a ton of stuff in it, jetskis, boards...no problems ever.

    Although there's been a new development too...the lake I'm on is completely private, there's no public access at all. It's literally the best lake I've ever been on. I am not happy at all about moving off of it and going back to using public lakes. Anyway, my new neighbor that just bought a house on the water a couple months ago came surfing with me last night. There's a house by his that has an easement on the water that's adjacent to his land. He said the guy wants to sell the easement and offered to sell it to him. We're going to make an offer to him and split it...if so then who cares where my wife wants to buy a house, I'll still have my boat on the hoist on my lake! The house we offered on is about 5 minutes away from the lake I'm on now, so it wouldn't be bad at all plus no trailering every day lol.

Maybe the boat will fit at an angle. If not, I'm not concerned really. Worst case is I get one of the harbor freight instant garages and keep it in there. Or just keep it in the driveway with the cover on, not like that's any different than it sitting on my hoist with the cover on!
    The best solution if you have to go with a cover/carport is to check out www.carport.com you can have a sweet metal carport made that's tall enough for your tower and has 1/2 sides on the top for $1500 to $2k. The harbor freight tent garages are a bit of a PITA. they can't take snow loads and the tarps honestly last 2 years max.

    Nice, thanks for the info. I thought about that, I have a friend that works for a carport company, he can probably hook me up. See the canopy in my avatar, that was his he made. Just not sure what the township rules are for either, have to find out.

    Hey, what else about your particular lake makes it so good, i.e., best one you've ever been on????

    So, what's the big difference between HOA rules & township rules?

    Nobody uses it the large majority of the time, aside from a group of hardcore skiers. It will be middle of the summer and I'll be the only one on the water some evenings. It's crazy how little it's used.

    Township doesn't prevent me from having my boat, fifth wheel, jetski trailer, etc from being in my driveway is the main one I care about

    Yeah, that's my point. There are rules wherever you are.

    I like that my neighborhood HOA prevents people from living a John Cougar Melancamp life and painting their little house pink or a country song and having their pick 'em up truck on blocks in the front yard. Pretty sure that helps maintain the value of my investment.

    The guy from the HOA told me I couldn't cut my tree down. So I went in his yard and cut his down instead.
