Winterize Your Boat

Posted on: January 16th, 2012 by admin No Comments

For many of us, boating is a year round pastime.  Exploring the delta in the cooler months is a lot of fun and probably the best time to experience wildlife on the delta.  For others, however, boating is only something to be done in the warm summer months.  For those folks, it is a good idea to winterize your boat for the long winter season of storage.

Bethel Harbor recommends adding a fuel stabilizer to your gas tank.  Also, it’s important to run a fogging agent into your engine before draining your block and manifolds of water.  Next, turn off your battery switch if you have one or disconnect the battery altogether.  If you can’t find the time to come out and perform this service, simply call Bethel Harbor’s service department at 925-684-2141.

Winterizations typically run $150.00.
