  • The engine should be flushed and stored vertically, if possible.
  • Add fuel stabilizer to the gas tank.
  • Apply a protective spray to the vinyl.
  • For long-term boat trailer storage, the wheels should be put on wood blocks to avoid tire damage.
  • If storing outside, use a vented boat wrap or boat cover, which you may find at your local boating store.

Drain the fuel lines or, if keeping gas in the tank, add a fuel stabilizer. Replace the engine filters and check belts, hoses, clamps, and the oil. Drain the coolant and use antifreeze. Clean and wipe down the exterior and interior of the boat to remove moisture. Last, plug exhaust outlets to prevent rodents from entering.

    Though Payson doesn't have extreme humidity levels in the winter, it's still a good idea to fully protect your vehicle from winter weather and UV rays. Just rent climate-controlled boat storage.

    Yes, it's suggested you have insurance. Check your homeowner's or renter's insurance policy to confirm that it covers potential theft or damage while your boat is being stored.
