Now: A Different Kind of Protection

After you’ve squared away protecting your boat with the right insurance options, it’s time to think about protecting your boat in a more literal sense – by properly preparing it for winter. Below are some general tips to follow, but, of course, you should check your owner’s manuals for manufacturer recommendations.

  • Your Engine  Follow manufacturer instructions when winterizing your engine, but you’ll want to flush the engine with fresh water and make sure to drain fuel from the carburetor to prevent a build-up of deposits. Use fogging oil in the cylinders to lubricate cylinder walls and pistons.
  • Stern Drive  Do a thorough inspection and remove plant life or barnacles from the lower unit. Drain the gear case and clean the lower unit with soap and water.
  • Fuel Tanks  Fill your fuel tanks to avoid a buildup of condensation and add fuel stabilizer, following the product instructions.
  • Fresh Water System  Drain the fresh water tank and water heater, and pump a non-toxic antifreeze into the system. Then, turn on all faucets until you see the antifreeze coming out.
  • Interior  Remove all valuables from the boat. Clean drawers thoroughly, and turn cushions on their edges to allow air to circulate. Clean the refrigerator and freezer.
  • Cover it Up!  A cover will keep your boat clean and protect it from water and UV rays, which can break down hoses and fade upholstery.

Now, with your boat safely stowed, you can focus on your other toys this winter. Snowmobiles, anyone?
