    Inboard Boat Owner Preparation: A few Tips to get your boat ready for Winterization.

    1. Boat needs to be on a trailer and as level as possible to help draining the engine.
    2. The gas tank should be filled to about 75% capacity. If you fill it to the top, it may expand and overflow. Leaving the tank empty or low encourages condensation and explosive fumes.
    3. A garden hose needs to be connected to a water source and able to reach the boat.
    4. Water and non-toxic anti-freeze will be flushed through the engine, with the engine running, so the boat should be placed where this won’t be a problem.
    5. The Outdrive/Trim should be stored in the down position. This saves on stretching the bellows and shift cable.
    6. Unless otherwise instructed, Rov-a-tune leaves the battery in the boat. The battery should be stored in an area above freezing and charged a couple times over the winter - if possible.
    7. If still in place, Rov-a-tune removes the main drain plug and puts it in the glove box. IMPORTANT: The drain plug must be reinstalled before launching the boat.
