Boat in florida watersBattery – remove the battery from the boat and store it in a dry place for the winter season if you’re not planning on using the boat for a few months.

Drain – it’s important to drain your boat of any excess water that may be sitting on the boat. You don’t want any water to be sitting on the boat for several months while not using it.

Gas – a good idea is to top off the tank with gas, add a stabilizer to prevent any buildup, and run the engine for 15 minutes.

Repairs – always check the entire boat in case of any repairs need to be done. If your hull has any damage from the sun, water, wear and tear, or anything else, repair it, so that you don’t have to when you’re ready to take it out for the season. Any other repairs needed should be done before storing the boat. This will be less stressful when the summer rolls around.

Trailer – do a quick check of your boat trailer to make sure all the lights work. Also, make sure there’s no corrosion.
