Time to winterize your boat

This morning the lawn was covered in frost!  That means it is time to winterize your boat and get her ready for winter cruising or storage.  Preventative maintenance is always the least expensive kind.



I like to cover the air intakes for the engine compartment so that cold air does not blow in and displace the warm air you just heated.  Easiest method is to use vinyl shelf liner, it has a low tac adhesive that does not leave any adhesive residue when you peel it off later.  Very inexpensive and a roll will last for years.
