The Utah boating season is coming to a close. It is now time to start winterizing your boat to keep it protected for the winter. The best place for your boat to be during the harsh Utah winter is out of the water. Here is a checklist of things that should be done once you have your boat out of the marina and on the trailer.

  1. 1. Fuel

    Fuel

    Fill your fuel tank and add a fuel stabilizer. Also, change the fuel filter and water separator. This will help your boat avoid any build up of condensation over the long Utah winter months. It is also a good idea to clean and dry the bilges. Spray them with moisture displacing lubricant and antifreeze to prevent water from freezing.

  2. 2. Interior

    Interior

    Remove any electronics or valuable items from the boat. Also remove the fire extinguisher to have it cleaned, checked, and replaced if needed. Move the boat cushions up to allow a circulation of air or bring them home with you to store in a climate-controlled area. To keep the boat mildew free, install a dehumidifier or an odor and moisture absorber.

  3. 3. Boat Covers

    Boat Covers

    After thoroughly cleaning the boat’s hull, rudders, struts and trim tabs, look into some quality boat covers. Boat covers will protect your boat from debris whether stored indoors or out. Of all the important winter preparations, boat covers are the most important in protecting your boat. Outdoors, Utah winters can be harsh, a boat cover will protect against the snow, and even against any critters trying to take cover. Boat covers are important even if you are storing the boat indoors for the winter because it will protect against dust or other things that could damage the interior and make for an unpleasant spring boating season.
