The boat has always been stored in a covered hoist during the boating season and in a garage (unheated) during the winter. I have had the boat professionally winterize and summarize each year (changing the oil annually, changing the impeller every 2 years, repacking the shaft when needed, etc. etc.). I�ve done my best to treat the boat and trailer with kid gloves since the beginning. I have also done the following:2006:(work done by fish Brothers) Varnish hull (2 coats), restripe decks.
