The Importance of Shrinkwrap and Winterization of your Boat!

boat winterization and shrinkwrapFew things are as important as winterizing your marine engine. It is crucial in protecting your boat and minimizing your effort when spring rolls around and you’re ready to hit the open water. However, there’s a more important reason to invest in a boat shrinkwrap and winterization service.


Boat winterization helps extend the life of your boat’s power train by preventing the components from freezing, dormancy and corrosion.

The water, UV Rays and wind can wreak havoc on a boat causing ware and tear on the boat even during the summer. It’s important to make sure fluids are topped up after a good boating season and the boat is checked over going into the harsh winter so your boat is in shipshape for the spring again. Hartley Bay Marina can give you boat the TLC it needs prior to storing your boat for the winter.
