Vehicles need special attention
During this time of year, vehicles owned by residents are in need of special attention in order to survive the winter months.
Jodie Wood, owner of Wood Marine, said there are several key factors to keep in mind when winterizing a boat.
“For ski boats you want to make sure you treat the gas for ethanol. If it is not treated it can have damaging effects,” he said. “Residents need to make sure they drain the water from the engine, too, so that the water doesn’t freeze and crack the motor. Also, the engine of a ski boat needs to be fogged.”
