If you own a fishing boat, it’s about time to get it ready for storage this winter. And to help you along your boat storage journey, here are a few tips to help you make sure that your vessel stays in prime condition for the duration of its stay in storage.
Change Your Oil
Changing your engine’s oil is one of the simplest, yet most important things you can do to prepare your boat for winter storage. Whether you fish from pontoon boats or a smaller fishing vessel, making sure you have fresh oil in the engine is essential. Changing out your boat engine’s oil ensures that any moving components are coated in fresh lubricant for the winter months. This helps ensure that, come spring, you won’t suffer any engine failure or frozen parts! This will also help reduce the amount of maintenance you’ll need to perform on your boat once it comes out of storage for the season.
