Get a Head Start on Winterizing Your Boat Right

Winterizing

 

 

Unfortunately, the boating season is winding down in many parts of the country and it is time to start thinking about protecting your valuable recreational asset. Want to be sure your boat comes out of hibernation ready to launch? Investing a little time now to prep your boat for winter storage will pay off in prime performance next spring.

Winterizing a boat reminds me of the old commercial that says "pay me now or pay me later." The time and effort you spend now will have a definite effect on your boat's performance, or lack of it, and certainly save you time, effort and money come spring. You should remember that your insurance policy may not cover damage done by lack of maintenance or neglect.

Your first step in winterizing should be to make a checklist of all items that need to be accomplished.
