Your probably thinking why bother winterizing my boat I live in Florida. Well winterization isnt just to protect your engine from a cold snap that will freeze your block and possibly crack it. Although this past winter was pretty bad. Its other purpose is to keep your eninge properly lubercated when its not in use for an extended period of time to prevent any moisture from rusting your cylinder walls, as well as to stabilize your fuel. Performing winterization service on your boat will save you hundreds of dollars in future repair bills! Plus, you will prolong your boat's life, maintain the boat's value and be sure your boat will be ready to go next season.
Winterization Service Includes:
•Stabilizing the fuel that remains in the tank
•Circulating the stabilizer throughout the fuel system
•Fogging the cylinder (coats cylinder walls to prevent rust)
•Draining all water from the engine to prevent any possibility of freezing
•Pump antifreeze into engine block
•Disconnecting the Batteries (I recommend that boat owners invest in a battery tender, to extend battery life)
•One more tip: Make sure the fuel tank is all the way fuel before storing to prevent condensation from forming in the tank. This can cause major fuel system problems in the future.
Winterization costs vary from make and model of boat call for details on your specific boat.
