Tips on Winterizing Your Boat

 

 

Fall is upon us. The days are getting shorter and for many boaters the chill in the air marks the end of the boating season. You may be winding down and taking steps to winterize your boat. Even if you are lucky enough to enjoy your boat year-round, fall is the ideal time to take care of annual maintenance of all your boat systems. Time and money spent now will pay off by keeping your boat in prime condition and protecting it from potentially harsh winter damage. Keep in mind that many insurance companies won't cover damage caused by lack of maintenance. Plus, the more you do now to maintain your boat, the sooner you will be underway when warm weather returns!

 

There are many resources available for creating a customized winterization checklist. The first place is to consult is your owner's manual for any specific requirements. Some maintenance steps will vary depending on the types of systems on your boat and where to keep it. In the very simplest terms the goal is to prevent freezing water and corrosion.

 

The following list is not all inclusive but will give you an idea of areas to consider when winterizing your boat or performing seasonal maintenance. For step-by-step instructions refer to the various resources found in Boat Improvements and Maintenance.
