Winterizing Small Boat Motor
I realize that it is only October, but the cool fall air and incessant holiday shopping commercials have already put winter on my mind. With colder temperatures brings the end of boating season. I know I’ll be spending the upcoming weekend winterizing my small outboard boat motor.
It doesn’t take too much to winterize a small boat motor – cleaning out the engine, adding fuel stabilizer and whatnot. It is such a simple task that it always amazes me when people fail to do it, knowing full well that an improperly cared for motor left to sit over the winter can lead to all sorts of problems. Hopefully this post has served as a reminder and all of you readers will go and winterize your boats in the coming weeks. While you’re at it, don’t forget to order bulk outboard motor oil for next season.
