Default PWC Winter Storage

Hello All,
Just looking for info on winter storage of PWC. I called the marina I normally store my boats at and they said they do not store PWC there. Can folks recommend a place in the Meredith/Laconia area that winterizes/summerizes and stores these? I called over to HK Motor Sports and they charge $40 month plus winterizing and summerizing. I think there is a oil lube that should be changed yearly (prior to Spring launch) according to HK. I'm also thinking of winterizing them myself after taking a on-line tutorial and maybe cleaning out my garage and making some room. If there is a reasonable place that does a package deal for PWC that would make it easier for me to just drop off. Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weather!!!!

If you want to winterize yourself it is fairly easy. If you want a lesson, let me know this fall, I can def. help you out. I have winterized both 2-stroke and 4-stroke PWCs for a few years. Places charge $150+ to winterize. I will do it for a 6-pack and the necessary parts (under $50).

A neighbor stores his on it's trailer covered with the canvas cover which remains on when he trailers it somewhere to use ~ simple. Beside his garage.

In 12 years of owning my PWC's, I have never "winterized" per say once. I make sure all water is out of the bilge, and make sure to run the water out of the cooling system with the motor itself. I pull the battery and that's it. Starts right up perfectly easy every year. For most of those years it is in one of my garages that gets below freezing. Never a problem.

Default I agree with siksuker

I do put stabilizer in the gas tank. Otherwise it is good to go.

You can check with Landmark storage on Salem St in Laconia. I've seen PWC stored there.
