IT’S TIME TO WINTERISE!

We hope you’ve had an enjoyable summer of boating, but it’s time to think about winter servicing and winterisation.

Winter service is essential to the long term health of a marine engine no matter what size or type or how much use it has had. During use the oil absorbs contaminants and condensation from the combustion process and the harsh environment in which it operates. An oil and filter change is the minimum service you should be considering and the best time to do this is before the winter layup. Leaving contaminated oil in the engine over the winter will lead to greater wear and tear and reduced engine life. Combining an end of season service with winterisation is the best care you can give your engine to maintain reliability and the value of your investment.

Arranging your winter service and winterisation now takes away the worry and sleepless nights when the weather forecasters predict a sudden cold snap. If you also book your re-commissioning at the same time you can be sure your boat is up and running when you want it at the start on next season.

So whether you have an outboard motor, a yacht auxiliary or a pair of high performance diesel engines it is time to get your winter maintenance booked. And don’t forget the generator if you have one fitted, they need the same maintenance as a propulsion engine.
