Due to uncontrollable MN temperatures we can not guarantee any winterizes on or after
the first recorded freeze of the season in MN.
Shrink-wrapping is the ideal way to protect your boat from the snow, ice and varmints in the winter, as your regular boat cover is not made to handle it. Shrink-wrapping is framed, tented and vented to keep the weight of the snow and ice off your windshield and wrapped tight along the sides and around the outdrive/gearcase to help keep out any unwanted critters. As an additional critter precaution we'll prep your boat using dryer sheets & moth balls before wrapping to help deter them.
When shrink-wrapping boats there is always the possibility of mold/mildew accumulating inside over the winter. Especially if the boat is brought in wet or with a cover that's not 100% waterproof. It's mainly caused by residual moisture inside (upholstery, carpet, bilge, compartments, etc...). Unfortunately we don't have any control over this. Boats are designed to get wet and are commonly stored outside in season so it is near impossible for it to be 100% dry at anytime. To try and help avoid this before bringing the boat in, here are a few tips... keep the bilge plug out and crank up the tongue jack to allow it to drain it as much as possible, also clean out any compartments that may hold ski equipment, life jackets, etc and keep them open to help air them out. If your carpet snaps out, you can try hanging it up to help it dry.
