It’s time to make your winterization appointment. To do so, please call our service department at 615-444-BOAT (2628).

TYPES OF APPOINTMENTS

We offer two appointment options to meet your winterization needs:

  1. Express Drive Thru appointment (our most popular option)
  2. Drop off appointment

THE IMPORTANCE OF WINTERIZATION

Regardless of where your boat is stored – on a lift, at a storage facility, even in a heated garage, your machine sits unused for 5-6 months. Our winterization procedure is a critical step to keep your boat and engine healthy during the winter months for several reasons – most importantly, it:

  1. Protects your engine from cracks due to freeze.
  2. Lubricates your motor and protects it from flash rusting.
  3. Treats the fuel delivery system.

We take great pride in our winterization process, which does not require a de-winterization come spring time. This work includes:

  • Treating your fuel and your entire fuel delivery system.
  • Fogging the intake to protect the top side of your engine from rusting.
  • Draining your engine of all water, flushing it with environmentally safe anti-freeze and re-plugging. (Unlike other service centers who may simply drain your fluids, we fill your engine with anti-freeze to protect and lubricate it.)
