Winterization: Shrink-Wrap your boat at Allen Marine
The West Coast of British Columbia is subjected to a variety of winter conditions and for many of us need to store you boat for the winter is a must.
Shrink wrap is an excellent, cost effective option to protect your investment. Shrink wrap, once heated, creates a weather resistant barrier that will guard against the damage of wind, rain, snow and sun damage.
Several Shrink Wrap options are available, such as Shrink Wrap reusable covers. Come in, or call us for more info to suit your needs.
Remember to ask us about winterization of the various systems and engine components on your boat at the same time.
Winterization requires special preparation to prevent damage to your boat. We recommend winterization to all clients to prevent a costly spring time dilemma. Without proper boat winterization, storage for long periods of time may cause parts of your boat’s engine and transmission to deteriorate. If your boat will be stored in freezing temperatures, with water inside the bilge or engine cooling system, this could result in major damage from the freezing (and expanding) process.
Pricing varies depending on the size of boat. CALL us at 250-585-7880 to arrange your Shrink-Wrapping and Winterization needs.
