It is the time of year people begin thinking of having their boat ready for summer use!  If you would like our mechanics to prepare your boat for summer, give our office a call at 540.297.7692 during office hours Tuesday – Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm!


Summerization is the process  where our mechanics prepare your boat to be ready to use when you go boating in the summer.  We de-winterize the engine(s) and other systems your boat may have, make sure it starts and runs smoothly, check the fluids, battery etc. and report back to you with any problems we may find.  We summerize over 100 boats a year to try to make sure you are ready to go boating when you want to this summer!


Winterization is the process of preparing your boat for the upcoming winter.  We have various “winterization packages” available for you to choose from.  Most of the packages include changing your boat’s oil which is a good idea to do so the boat is stored with clean oil.

We winterize hundreds of the boats on the lake, in the marina and some brought in by trailer,  so be sure to call in your order early!  We start receiving orders in August when some summer boaters are done with their boat for the year.  Most people call in their winterization order after Labor Day.  We mail out a winterization letter after Labor Day every year.

To schedule your winterization or to get a letter sent to you, call our office at 540.297.7692.  Our regular office hours are Tuesday thru Saturday from 9:00am to 5:00pm.   Also, winterization forms can be filled out, scanned and e-mailed to us at:

We would like to thank all of our loyal customers for their support of our local business throughout the years!
