When to Prepare Your Boat for Winter

During the summer, you might find yourself out on the water almost every day. The Severn River offers numerous opportunities for water sports enthusiasts during the warm months, but things tend to calm down once the cold weather descends on the Chesapeake Bay. To make sure your boat doesn’t suffer any serious damage during the winter, it’s important that you work with your Annapolis marina to prepare your boat for winter.

When determining the best time to winterize your boat, it’s important that you consult your owner’s manual. Once the boating season starts winding down in September and October, you may find yourself out on the water less and less. If it’s been a few weeks since you’ve taken your boat out, and the temperatures are getting dangerously close to freezing, it’s time to consider winterization. Again, it’s a good idea to consult your owner’s manual as well as your Annapolis marina to make sure you get winterization just right. Once Spring comes around, you’ll be very glad that you put some effort into winterization.
