Shrink Wrapping Your Boat
Spending a little money now could save you a lot of money later. Old man winter can be very harsh on your boat. Cracked blocks, corrosion, fuel degradation, accumulated ice can split open hatches and window tracks, dry and cracking vinyl, mold, mildew and corrosion of electronics are just some of the things that can happen due to not winterizing your boat.
Plan ahead. When boating season gets here, you want to get out in the water as quick as possible. If you have damage from the winter weather or a maintenance problem that needed to be taken care of and you wait until the new boating season, which is one of the busiest seasons for the boat specialists, your fun in the sun could be delayed quite a bit. Not to mention that most insurance policies do not cover damage due to neglect or lack of maintenance.
Poor Shrink Wrapping Leads to Damage!
How do you winterize a boat?
The checklist for boat winterization can look a bit overwhelming. Some of the areas covered include but are not limited to:
- Flushing the engine with fresh water
- Cleaning the telltales
- Filling with antifreeze
- Adding fuel stabilizer throughout system
- Spraying fogging oil into carburetor and cylinders (fuel-injected engines need two-cycle oil instead of fogging oil)
- Removing and checking the propeller
- Cleaning and adding a protective coat of grease to propeller shaft
- Applying marine corrosive inhibitor to metal components
- Changing the transmission fluid
And much more depending on the type of boat and the place or type of winter boat storage available to you. Whether you’re winterizing a Mercruiser, Yamaha or any other type of engine, Kompletely Kustom Marine, Inc. has professional technicians that can get the job done quickly and efficiently.
Also, don’t forget about winterizing your personal water craft (PWC), jet skis and wave runners. The same precautions and winter preparations need to be done for these as well.
Protect Your Investment Properly
Owning a boat is a large investment so it’s just as important to choose a professional and reputable service company for your vessel as it is for your home. Don’t just listen to your buddy on the dock. Beware of hiring illegitimate people just listed anywhere and that are not insured.
The supposed cost-saving benefits of hiring an unlicensed and uninsured contractor are not worth the risks, which could potentially cost you everything you own. Hiring an unlicensed, uninsured contractor makes you become the general contractor. You could then be held responsible for any damages or medical bills if a subcontractor is hurt on the job. In other words, they can sue you for medical compensation, and we all know how that can quickly escalate.
In addition to the risk previously stated, what guarantee do you have that the unlicensed contractor will not take off with your money and leave the job incomplete? How many times have you heard about this happening to other people? Don’t become a victim – make sure that you only hire a licensed and insured company with an outstanding reputation.
