Tom-N-Jerrys Boat Center – How To Winterize A Boat Engine

Tom-N-Jerrys Boat Center sells many boats every year and one of the most common questions many new boats owners have is how to winterize the boat engine to protect it until the next season. If you are wondering how to keep your boat safe this winter, these tips can help.

Gas Stabilizer

Once you have filled up your gas tank or if you are planning on leaving any gas in the tank, you will need to add gas stabilizer to protect the gas during the winter. This will keep it from freezing and help it run better when you are ready to use it again.

Antifreeze

You don’t want your motor to freeze and crack during the winter, and you can protect it with antifreeze the same way you would protect your car. Just make sure there is antifreeze in the proper reservoir before you store your boat for winter.

Change The Oil

Many people take the time to change their oil while they are winterizing the boat motor. This not only protects the engine; it leaves the boat ready to use when warmer weather comes along. If you are not planning to change the oil, at least check it and make sure the oil tank is full for the winter.

If you are going to buy a boat and want to keep it safe and protected during cold weather, you will need to winterize it. You can follow the above tips or talk to someone at Tom-N-Jerrys Boat Center for more advice.
