I'm looking into a Shelter logic Round enclosure for my Boat! Does anyone have any experience with these things and how well they hold up to our winters? Does anyone no of any for sale or a Decent place to get one at a good Price?

I had one for a few years, it held up well in the winter,just make sure it's anchored down really well and get the heavy snow off from it and you should not have any problems.

Get the. 20*13 foot one... and make sure you get the alpine roof so it will shed snow. I have had mine for 4 years and love it... the tops they sell with them don’t last....only 2 seasons but I replaced the top with a poly 20 year top that cost more than the original shed, but it was worth it. 2 years on new top and it looks new.... old top got sun weathered tooooo fast.

I know a couple people using this model. This one in the photo for a 24 ft boat is $3,000. The other person has a 20 ft Fishmaster like mine and has one of these too:

I have a Shelter Logic 12 x 24 hip roof design like the one that Ron is showing. The original cover lasted 5 years and I replaced it with a 10 yr. warranty cover. I used 6x6 PT beams for a base and used 4' rebar to hold them in place. I used 2' spiral anchors on each corner to help hold the cover in place. I also screwed each upright pole down to the beams. It is very solid. I have the roll up ends. Not too crazy about that. Good alternative to a wood structure and no permit needed. That's big in Winooski.
