Crowley's Yacht Yard Fall

Crowley's Lakeside Story

Step by Step
By Michael Argyelan

Fall, it’s only days away. After the finish of the last beer can race I was a bit stunned. Or should I say bummed? The season is close to its end. It’s too soon.

Of course this means it’s time to think about putting our ladies to bed for a long and cold slumber in the boat yard. With that comes a proper winterizing procedure to protect our investments. This week I’m going to focus on sailboats. Next week Andrew Spaulding will follow with a power boat focus. He’s our resident power boat expert.

I’ll warn you this article is a little long. I did my best to cover a lot of steps in the winterizing process; from the time you leave the dock to inspecting your rig and halyards. You may want to even print this out and use it as a checklist so you know you’ve covered all your bases. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions you’d like passed along please email me at mma@crowleys.com.
