Let Us Winterize Your Boat

Winterize your boat

Boaters, Old Man Winter is almost here. It’s time to winterize your boat before freezing temperatures settle in like a snowy polar bear playing in the Sound.

At Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard we offer to winterize, protect and preserve your investment for all types of outboard, inboard, inboard/outboard and auxiliary engines. We can also service your domestic water systems, which includes filling your engines and water systems with a nontoxic, biodegradable antifreeze.

When we winterize your boat, we will “pickle” your power plant, auxiliaries, dinghy engines and more. This entails spraying the cylinders with fogging oil and adding fuel stabilizer to the fuel system and running it through the engine, says master engine mechanic and boatyard Service Manager Chris Hawke.

Hot water heater bypass kits are available to save on the volume of antifreeze used, and for ease of system restoration come spring.
