How long does it take to get a boat out of winter storage in a marina when the season is over?by Jason Watts Content Writer
In my experience to get a boat out of winter storage in a marina, normally takes a week. Although it can take less than a week or more than a week depending on what marina you’re dealing with.
Before you jump right into the fun with your boat again, you may want to take some time to give your boat a little attention. After being in storage, it’s going to need a little attention to make sure that the boat will run well and you’ll be safe out on the water.
Here are the steps you must take after getting a boat out of winter storage in a marina:
Check out the hinges, hoses, lighting, and any moving parts; they could have dried out a bit and may not be operating as they should. You can grease up moving parts with oil and change any lights that have burned out. It’s better to discover these things when you’re not on the open water!
Before storing a boat for a long time, you should drain the fluids. Now is the time to put them back in! Change the oil, power steering, and oil filter, and lubricate any of the engine’s moving parts.
After pulling your boat out of winter storage, clean your boat with a power washer, vacuum up the inside, and clean any of the inside surfaces. Cleaning your boat regularly helps all of its parts last longer.
If you stored your safety equipment alongside your boat, you need to check to make sure it’s still in good condition. Go through your safety checklist to make sure you have your preservers, life jackets, and other safety equipment. Check to make sure your life jackets still fit, that your fire extinguisher still has pressure and that your flares still work.
