Avoid 5 boat winterizing mistakes
2. Failure to drain water from sea strainer: The seawater strainer must be winterized or residual water could freeze and rupture the watertight seal.
3. Failure to close seacocks: For boats left in the water, leaving seacocks open over the winter is like going on extended vacation without locking the house.
4. Clogged petcocks: Engine cooling system petcocks clogged by rust or other debris can prevent water from fully draining.
5. Using bimini covers as winter storage covers: A cover that protects the crew from the sun does a lousy job protecting the boat from freezing rain and snow.
