Winterizing Your Marine Electronics
Chart plotters. Radar and positioning systems. Communication devices.
When you are winterizing your Grady-White, don’t forget your marine
While not all Gradys experience the deep below-zero temperatures that
may exceed the range stated in equipment warranties, as you prepare to
store your boat now is a good time to service and prepare your
electronics for the next boating season. In the colder climates,
shrink-wrapping your boat helps protect onboard items from the elements.
(It’s a good idea to take handheld devices off board.) Avoid tension on
antennas and radomes! Your Grady-White dealer is your best resource for
wrapping your boat and preparing it for storage. Click here to find your nearest Grady dealer.
“This is a good time to clean connections, and clean and paint
transducers. Anything that can be easily removed we store inside,”
explains Michael Richard, service manager for Grady-White dealership
Cataumet Boats in Massachusetts. “This is a good time to send in for an
update, or battery replacement, depending on the equipment
manufacturer's service recommendations.”
Take this opportunity to back up waypoints and other stored data.
A bit of attention now will keep your electronic equipment in shape and
at the ready for that first day back on the water! Refer to your
electronics owners’ manuals for more specific information. If you have
your own checklist for preparing your boat for storage, share yours
under Customer Tips on gradywhite.com. And if new electronics are on your holiday wish list, visit your Grady dealer for suggestions.
