Thats the problem I am having right now, only a select few touch my vehicles and when I had my C7 Corvettes only 2 people ever drove them. I want to Exslpode on them but it might not be a big deal and only principle

Your boat should have never been outside then unless they needed to do service on it. Especially since it sounds like you have a reserved space.

Yeah Id be mad. Boat is my Baby. You signed up for and paid for a premium service that met your requirements (which could be different from someone elses requirements and expectations). They failed to deliver.

Had they at least told you it would be outside you may have done something different (shrink wrap or tarp over your cover) but they failed that.

Boats get wet. If it is nasty or smells, they need to detail it. Check cover to make sure it is still tight. We have had a lot of rain and a weird start to fall / winter for sure.

Maybe also discount on next year storage?

I'm sure your boat is fine, but if I paid for indoor storage and my boat was left outside for 2 months then I wouldn't be happy at all. That's just laziness on the dealers part.

Based on your profile and post, I assume your boat is sitting outside with no poles and no shrinkwrap in Michigan. Depending on your cover, the snow load is likely to sag the cover and get a bunch of water into the boat come spring.

I would see if the dealer would at least oblige you by pulling the boat into one of their service bays for a night allowing you to install poles.
