I have 2014 22 slx with an Evinrude Etec Pontoon series 90 HP engine and i am looking for advice on the proper winterization process. (i can't believe how hard it is to find the "proper" process for winterization.) The boat is kept in the water throughout the summer in a salt water bay, in DE, and i pull the boat out for Hard Storage Nov-May each year. I have been having the local marinas winterize and store the boat but for cost reasons i am going to start winterizing the boat myself. I wanted to find out the proper process/procedure and make sure i don't overlook any steps.
This is my plan for winterization and storage, can anyone please tell me if i am missing any key steps or does it look like if i follow this plan the boat should be good to go in the summer. Any help and advice is HUGELY appreciated!
For General End of Summer Boat Care i perform the following:
For Winterization this is the list i have been able to find so far:
please tell me if i am missing any key steps.
Being that this will be my first time winterizing the boat myself, any advice and tips will be a HUGE Help.
Thank you in advance
