All motorboat and sailboat stackable boat stands and other types of galvanized boat stands and blocks should all be checked on a regular basis while your boat is being stored. Check to ensure that the boat stands remain snug against the hull of your vessel and that the keel blocks are not sinking into the ground. Make sure blocks are in good condition and are not splitting or rotting with age. Perform more frequent checks of all nested boat stands if your boat is being stored under windy or stormy conditions to ensure that the boat stands are properly stabilizing your boat. Galvanized boat stands do not require extra treatment, but painted nested boat stands and stackable boat stands should be painted with a rust-preventative paint for long-lasting durability.
