How to Winterize a Boat: The Carefree Way


You might be reading this article because you’re a boat owner, and you are already dreading the looming yearly task of winterizing your watercraft. Maybe you’re here because you’re new to boating and its maintenance, trying to get an idea of what this chore will look like both practically and financially. Well, we have bad news and good news. The bad news is yes, winterizing a boat is highly necessary to maintain the condition of a boat (unless you like the looks of the one pictured), but it is tediously time consuming and draining (in more ways than one). Good news, if you’re looking for an easier way for your boat to take its season-long repose, look no further, we are going to show you how to winterize – the Carefree way!

Flushing and lubricating the engine. Checking the hull. Cleaning and maintaining fuel systems. Protecting and scrubbing interiors. Charging and checking the battery. Oh, and don’t forget about storage. Essentially, this means putting lots of money into a boat, all while you can’t use it. Sound like a hassle?
