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!
