Winterization Resources

There’s work to do to ensure your boat makes it safely through the winter. BoatUS has your back with our comprehensive list of articles, checklists, and videos to ensure you don’t forget any important steps.

There’s a nip in the air, a sure indication that winter is not far away. As the season winds down, it’s time to start thinking about putting the boat away until next year. But where do you go to find out how to go about winterization, and just how can you be sure that you’re doing it correctly?

We’ve compiled a complete playlist of our videos and online articles, produced by our team of experts, to guide you, step-by-step, through virtually everything that you could possibly have a question about. Over the years we’ve made dozens of videos and written hundreds of articles on coping with winter. Simply go to BoatUS.com/Winterization where you’ll find the expert advice, checklists, and how-to video links you need to ensure that your boat is tucked away safe and sound during the colder months. Not only will time spent now protect your investment during the winter, but you’ll have less to do come spring, which will allow you to get back on the water faster when the weather starts to warm up.
