Why Your Boat Needs Winterized

Unlike your car which uses air to cool the engine and additional components, your boat takes advantage of water to cool these systems. While this is extremely efficient, it does have one downside when it comes to freezing weather. Without properly having your boat winterized, you fun the risk of water inside of your boat's cooling system freezing. The issue is, when this water freezes it starts to expand. When the water expands too much it will cause for hoses, fittings, or even the engine itself to crack and bust. While this might seem extreme, we can assure you it has happened before, and isn't an inexpensive repair compared to getting your boat winterized.

Does Only My Engine Need Winterized?

Yet another common question that we encounter every year! While the answer does vary depending on what type of boat, the simple answer is no. Whether your boat is equipped with a fresh water system (sinks, toilet, showers), or a ballast system, these systems use water as well. When they are no longer in use the water will remain in the system until it is physically removed and replaced with antifreeze during the winterization process.
