Winterklaar?

Winterklaar

02 October 2017

Alas! The summer season is nearly over which means it is time to prepare your boat for the colder months.

If you're new to boat ownership or you need a little reminder, here's some top tips to ensure your boat stays in good condition over the winter

✓  Protect your engine and water systems but running through an antifreeze solution. Freezing ice can cause cracks and block engines!

✓  Empty your petrol and drinking water tanks completely

  Fill your diesel tanks as full as possible to ensure water can't penetrate into the tank and cause condensation and diesel bug.

  Take your linens, cushions, charts and any electrical equipment home with you for the winter to avoid them getting damp

  Leave your boat in tiptop condition - give it a clean inside and out, and ensure you've emptied your fridge and freezer!

If you're visiting your boat over the winter, feel free to stop off at the Marina Office for a cup of something warming - we've got teas and coffees waiting for you!
