“Anchors away” boat shelter and patio
Privacy, shelter and storage for active outdoor living
Move out of doors in style during the summer . . . yet provide year-round storage for your boat, motor and outdoor equipment. All this in one simple operation with the “Anchors Away” boat shelter and convertible patio.
The spacious patio invites good living . . . providing ample area for family gatherings or large-scale entertaining. For added privacy, the wall sections of the boat-shelter swing outward on casters to the patio fence . . . closing off the entire patio area to provide seclusion for all outdoor functions, yet adding the soft shadows and textured beauty characteristic of Weyerhaeuser natural wood siding. Remove the boat from the shelter and you have a covered patio with plenty of room for rainy day activities.
Economy . . . yes, with one outside wall of your home forming the start of the shelter. For complete, seal-tight protection, just add a “swing-up” garage door to the front of the shelter.
