When the end of the summer hits and the weather starts getting colder, it becomes time to put up the boat and begin a new hobby. This period of time when you are not using and running your boat is the hardest time of the year on it. There is certain steps that have to be taken to insure that your boat will make it through the winter without tearing up and will be ready for when spring brings back boating season. Winterization is a process of getting your boat ready for the harsh winter ahead. As a marine boat engine dealer and repair facility, Rockdale Boat Mart can winterize your outboard, outdrive, and inboard engine before shrink-wrapping your boat and storing it for winter. Winterizing is a necessary protection for your engine and boat against the damaging effects of storage and freezing temperatures.

Winterize Your Boat With Shrink-Wrapping Service

Winterizing you boats motor is one thing, but the top of your vessel needs to be protected from the elements as well. Rockdale Boat Mart also provide shrink-wrapping services to protect your boat from the weather. Our storage shrink-wrapping service consists of building a custom structure so the wrap will shed rain & snow, applying a heavy duty plastic cover that fits tightly to the shape of your boat to protect it from the elements, interior waterproofing to prevent mildew, and installation of vents to encourage airflow. When you're ready for the spring boating season, simply peel away the plastic. The shrink-wrapping material is recycled, by sending it to the recycle center in a pre-paid shipping bag. We can also store your boat for the winter for you with our storage area. To learn more about our Storage Services check out our Storage Page.
