It’s time to start thinking about winter storage, haul out, & shrink-wrapping
Shrink-wrapping your boat is the best way to protect it during storage or transport. First the boat is supported with lines, then a sheet of plastic is cut and heated to conform to the boat. Special precautions are made to protect components from damage and surfaces from scratching. Vents are installed to prevent mold and mildew over the winter. A door can be installed if you need to access the boat while its stored. This can be done even if your boat is on a lift or in the water. Shrink-wrapping your boat is a great way to protect it and keep it clean during transport. We take special precautions when wrapping boats for transport.
Tarps and covers are not enough to stand up to the harsh winters and snow. Don’t allow costly damage to your boat or covers, have it shrink wrapped for peace of mind. The weight of a heavy snowfall is even enough to cause scuppers to go underwater, and allow water to come in. Also having your boat shrink wrapped allows you to take care of maintenance items over the winter while getting out of the elements.
To prevent damage from the cold weather and sitting for months at a time, your boat needs to be Winterized. This includes engines, generators, and water systems. Part of winterizing is changing fluids and filters as well as protecting your engine and other components from cracking or corroding by running antifreeze through them and spraying them down with a corrosion protectant inside and out.. Fuel will also need to be treated to ensure it does not go stale or allow water to accumulate. If proper precautions are not taken, the damage and necessary repairs can be costly. It’s not worth risking this, let our certified mechanics protect your boat. Shrink-wrapping is also a great way to protect your entire boat from the harsh winter weather.
Winter is the perfect time to work on those projects that prevent you from using your boat during the season.
