How To Winterize Your Boat Engine

Yes, you guessed it. Water freezes when things get cold during winter and this can spell big trouble for boat owners.

Winterizing your boat engine is a necessary chore if you want to enjoy your pleasure craft during the warm days of summer. Boats not only operate in the water but will often have water in the hull, gas lines and in some cases around the engine. This is normal because boating involves water.

Failure to winterize your boat can result in corrosion, cracked engine blocks, boasted hoses and cracked hulls. Repairing damage caused by winter weather can get extremely costly.

Visible nicks and scratches should be painted to prevent corrosion and you should also change the engine oil and filter.

Some engines must be flushed with fresh water prior to storage. Be careful when performing this procedure because all water must be drained prior to winter storage because even a small amount of water can Yamaha boats engine for sale and cause damage to the engine.

Ensure your inboard or stern-drive engine antifreeze is filled to prevent freezing. It may be advisable to replace this with new antifreeze each season as a precaution.

This will burn off any fuel left in the system. Then remove the plugs and spray some fogging oil in the cylinders and rotate the engine manually a few times to ensure the oil penetrates through the cylinder.
