His expert eye will also detect imperfections and / or possible problems thus avoiding headaches in the spring.

Winter ashore storage

This is the best option. Many professionals offer space for this, indoors or outdoors. Usually, the price includes leaving the boat and moving it to the warehouse. Some even offer a package including the annual review of engines, tanks, etc. Visit the place before choosing it and ask for the maintenance book once the overwintering ends. These are two actions to keep in mind! Remember to clean the hull immediately after leaving the boat, before the shells and soils dry. Similarly, once ashore, make sure that rainwater can flow properly … These are two of the things to do among many others!

Winter afloat
