Prepare for Winter Boat Storage in Four Easy Steps
In order to help you prepare for winter boat storage, we’ve assembled a few simple tips for getting your boat ready for the cold season.
- Oil & Filter: Make sure to drain your old engine oil and refill with fresh, clean oil. While you’re at it, go ahead and replace the oil filter. Afterward, it’s a good idea to run the engine for a while in order to push the new oil through the system.
- Fuel System: The most common method for treating your boat’s fuel system is to drain as much of the old fuel as possible, replace it with new fuel and then add a fuel stabilizer. Again, you’ll want to run your engine for at least 10 minutes to help circulate the stabilizer.
- Antifreeze: Protecting your engine with antifreeze can help minimize the effects of cold winter weather. Start by draining as much water as you can from your inboard cooling system and then fill it up with a marine-grade antifreeze product. Your local marine store may also recommend an outboard winterizing kit to help draw the antifreeze deeper into the engine.
- Tidy Up: When it’s time to take your boat out of storage, you don’t want to find a mess. Give the interior a thorough cleaning and power wash the exterior, if necessary. This is also a good time to declutter. Remove anything you don’t want to store over the winter – like first aid kids or life jackets.
