Winterization

When the temperature falls below freezing, if there is water inside your engine or gearcase, the result can be a cracked block or housing and a repair bill that runs into the thousands. It is easy enough to prevent this unhappy circumstance by putting your boat's engine to bed properly at the end of the boating season.The best part of having Athens Marine winterize your boat is that when spring time comes all you have to do is crank up your boat a go have fun.
