When preparing your boat for storage, it is important that we inspect the boat for any damages and to bring in the boat to be repaired before it gets winterized. Even the smallest damages can become worse over the winter and should be repaired before the boat is stored. Before storage we will also clean your boat to prevent any mold or mildew from forming during its time in storage. Next, we will check that the engine is running properly and tighten anything that may be loose or disconnected. The fuel line will be disconnected and we will let the motor run until it stops. The boats system will be flushed and the engine will be drained of any water before it is covered. We will then complete the winterization process and properly and safely store your boat.
