Wintering, an essential process for the health of your boat
We are in summer, time of enjoyment and in which we get the most out of our boat. nevertheless, it never hurts to think long-term. When the sailing season ends, it's time to give our boat a break until the good weather returns with the arrival of spring. A few months that can become a headache if the right measures are not taken. It is not enough to throw the canvas, essential maintenance tasks must be carried out so that the ship is in perfect condition. When inactivity comes, wintering is the best option. In Marinas of the Mediterranean, we make it easy for you.
As much as if you leave the boat afloat as if you decide to leave it out of the water, wintering tasks are essential to save money and upsets related to breakdowns, as well as ensuring the longevity of the engine. In the Port of the Duchess and the Port of Marina del Este, we offer a full wintering service, with motor heat-sealing tasks so everything is perfect when you return to navigation.
How do we do it?
First of all, one of our mechanics performs the wintering of the engine. After that, it's time to thoroughly clean and dissomble the entire boat and its equipment. A few days later, with the boat completely dry, begins the process of heat sealing. All metals are lubricated to prevent them from rusting, dehumidifiers are put in all rooms so that there is no humidity and the sides and all the sharp areas are protected. after, we proceed to cover the entire plastic boat, which will then burn, leaving the boat hermetically protected.
This will stay until you decide to sail again, at which time we will remove all the plastic and clean the boat so that you find it in perfect condition.
