Boat storage

Does anyone know of anywhere secure to keep a boat on a trailer in East Yorkshire? I live in Hull, but keep my boat in Scotland as I'm too tight to pay marina fees and don't have room to store it at the house! I think this is false economy though, 1000+ miles round trip is a long way....
Would consider anywhere really that's within about an hour of Hull, I've got a couple of launching sites worked out, just need somewhere to keep it and I can spend some cash....

Try some local farms in the area you want to be as they all have space in barns and do lots of storage these days.

I pay under 5 a week for secure storage on a farm.

Also try Caravan sites

You could try this site:

primarily caravans but no harm in asking about RIBs - after all, money is money

Be sure, whoever you approach has adequate insurance to cover your boat!!! I know of a farm fire that ended up in the guy whos boat was being stored coming out of it with a pile of ashes!!! Poor guy. Just something to think about!!
