Boat Storage FAQs
What is dry storage for boats?
Dry storage simply means storing a boat out of the water. This is the typical choice for long-term boat storage. Dry storage for boats can help to extend the life of the boat’s finish and upholstery. It’s a great option for those who trailer their boats and don’t have access to indoor space at a marina for winter storage.
How do you winterize an outboard boat motor?
Winterizing your outboard motor is an important part of long-term boat storage. Motors used in salt water should be flushed thoroughly. For all motors, whether used in fresh or salt water, you’ll need to add fuel conditioner to the gas tank, then disconnect the fuel line and let the motor cool. Drain the carburetor fluid, replace any lubricants, and apply anti-corrosion oil. Your owner’s manual may have more information on winterizing your boat.
