I am thinking of buying a small boat with a trolloing motor and a trailer. I will let you use it anytime in exchange for storage. This boat will be small enough to tow with any passanger car. Must be around 30 mins from Schaumburg (or something up north).
Looking at a 12' aluminum with a trolling mototr or more likely the basstender 11.3 found under the link:

Have you thought of renting a garage space, you can get them as cheap as 50-75/mo. in this economy
Yeah I know but I think for now I'm just going to use the 50-75/mo to just rent a boat.
I just can't wait for my fiancee to graduate college and buy a house. Condos suck if you like to mess in your garage or enjoy any kind of outdoors.
Thanks for the comments, just thought someone would like that deal until I get a house.
Anyone interested in renting a boat with a trolling motor?
