Winter is almost here, is your boat ready?

With wintertime just around the corner, icy and rainy days have arrived and we can no longer enjoy sunshine and long warm days as much as we used to only a couple of weeks ago.  We already miss sizzling summer days but the reality is that we need to get ready for winter days ahead us and protect the boats from the wind and low temperatures during the upcoming months.

We talked about the best precautions and safety suggestions to the ACI Marina Dubrovnik Port Captain, Mr Cvjeto Stjepovic, who shared with us his recommendations regarding keeping your boat safe during winter months. To start with, Cvjeto advises that every boat owner carefully and cautiously checks all the hoses and underwater parts of the boat, as well as to close the seacocks and inspect other vital parts of the boat – electricity, pumps etc. Moreover, he recommends that all vent pipes should be closed, covers powerfully fixed and safe and that everything is properly locked. At the end of the season, the owners regularly book professionals who specialize in boat care services, in order to check the condition of their boats and to do possible check-ups and repairs, like underwater hull cleaning, engine control and service, polishing and waxing, cleaning of interiors, check bilges etc…

ACI Marina Dubrovnik offers boat guarding services and safe keeping throughout the year including:  daily inspection of boats and keeping sails clean, checking of the lines and ropes, inventory of equipment and interior, leak testing etc… Your boat is safe with us!

Taking care of your boat during winter time will ensure a long life of your boat and guarantee you a stress-free springtime. Don’t forget to take all the necessary steps and keep your boat safe so when the sun is out in March, you can enjoy a peaceful and tranquil sailing…

Our dear sailors, we wish you a happy sailing and fair winds! Stay safe!
