    What is the best option for land storage for a 21' pontoon? Toon jacks, molded plastic that are purchased or home-made 2X4" square blocks? Does it matter?

    I used large styrofoam blocks that I got for free from tractor supply - about 12”-12”-18” (I’ve seen them at Lowes also). They are used to separate the small trailers that they sell when they are shipped to them. I use my neighbors scissor trailer and lower it onto the blocks in my yard. Neighbor lowers his onto rolling dollies in his driveway and pushes his into his garage. My 22SLX is in northern Michigan. Just be sure to place the blocks under the seams in the tubes - not in between.

    I’m here in Minnesota too and I had the same thoughts. So I just bought a bunk trailer to store it on for the winter.
