Winterizing boat questions?

Recommended Posts

Guest

Fabric dryer sheets (i.e. Bounce) works well. I hide them in the compartments. Refreshing scent in the boat...a heck of a lot better smell than moth balls!!

I've simply put moth balls in Dixie cups in the compartments, and on the floor of the boat. Covered it up tight. I usually buy 3 packages of the stuff.

In the spring, it sure smells, well, moth ballish. After a day or two uncovered in the garage, the smell dissapates.

I'd rather have the smell for a day of two, than to replace seats, padding and carpet, like a friend of mine, who found out the hard way. frown.gif What a mess that was.

I too use the mothballs but inside an old pair of my wife's nylons.( It seems like she is always ruining a pair anyway).I throw in a few moth balls,tie the nylon in a knot,cut it off,tie another knot and repeat the process. I find it's a lot easier to keep the balls from rolling around in the boat and it's just a lot easier to collect them all in the spring.I still have the same Mothballs from last spring in a sealed ice cream pail in the garage.It works good.Just remember to ask your better half for a pair of stockings she doesn't want anymore so you don't get in trouble. grin.gif-Troy
