How to Winterize Your Boat

Taking a spin on a boat during the summer is nothing short of delightful. During the Maryland winter, however, it’s a lot harder to work up the nerve. If you don’t plan to take out your boat during the winter, it’s a good idea to winterize it at your Annapolis marina.

This video explores the truths and myths surrounding boat winterization. For example, it’s a good idea to store your boat with a nearly full tank of gasoline to limit the amount of condensation. Contrary to common belief, there are no additives that can “fix” gasoline that has phase separated. It’s also inadvisable to winterize your boat by placing a space heater inside all winter, as this is a serious fire risk. Finally, you might consider installing a permanent flush system to make winterizing easy.
