Winterization

When done right, very little work needs to be done in preparing a boat for sea the following Spring. Winterizing greatly extends the life of the power train by protecting all of its varied components from corrosion, freezing and dormancy.

Fogging the cylinders with a protective coating helps prevent rusting and corrosion. Flushing the cooling system, especially on boats that operate in salt water, prevents salt crystals from corroding the cooling passages during the cold winter months.

Draining the gear oil case, ensures that any water trapped inside won't freeze, expand and destroy the housing.

Our full winterization service can prolong engine life and prevent costly future repair bills. In addition, a full winterization will help maintain your boat's value and operational efficiency for years to come.
