Tip Of The Week.
Boating season is pretty much over so it is a great time to pull boats out of the water and get them ready for winter storage. Drain the gas out of it or at least put conditioner in the tank. Drain all water from the craft. It is a good idea to try to find a place to store it out of the weather. If possible put all cloth items in totes to keep the mice out and a healthy dose of mothballs may also help to deter the little varmints. Don’t forget to check over your trailer to keep it mechanically sound.
