  3. Leaving your boat exposed to the elements is never a good idea. Ensure you shield your water-borne vehicle with a the appropriate cover.
  4. Make sure rodents are blocked from entering by plugging all openings with steel wool. Just do not forget to remove it before returning your craft to the water.
