Don’t put your winter boat care on ice

Now that your boat is safely on shore there are several winter time actions that are prudent.  After a season’s use it’s a good idea to give your equipment a good once over.

We recommend three options for your engine and machinery.

1.            Standard engine winterisation

Involves running up, inspecting, winterising, leaving and reporting observations.

2.            Basic engine service

As above plus oil and filter changes, anode and impellor replacement.

3.            Full engine service to manufacturer’s recommendations

As (2) above plus the manufacturer’s specific recommendations such as cam belt, injectors, valve clearances etc. with the amount of work being subject to hours of use and manufacturer.

Each of these operations requires the reversal of winterisation come springtime, prior to launch.

Thanks to our transparent pricing policy, we offer the above options 1 and 2, as well as an engine recommission at special package rates. Do check our prices.

Other actions that you may like to consider this winter include:

  •  Outboards – check and store
  •  Stern gear – inspect and service
  •  Batteries – remove and maintain
  •  Seacocks – service
  •  Heads – service
  •  Water system – drain down
  •  Bilges – clean and dry

You may have already made arrangements for these services but if we can be of any assistance please do call us on 01326 374309 or email us.
