maybe its because I am one frugal nutcase but I just don't understand this.
I got a letter from my marina outlining the costs to "winterize" my boat. (funny, I sold the last hole in the water that I had last month, but nonetheless)
the cost to winterize one engine (doesn't specify gas or diesel) including
drain block, mainfold, coolers, "other water passages" add antifreeze and "fog" 150.00
change oil and filter, single engine 97.50. You get a deal if you have two, its only 162.50 (two engines or engine/genset)
the real deal comes if you have two of the smoky things AND a gen set, they'll change all of the oil filters and oil for the nominal sum of 260.00
(OIL AND FILTER ADDITIONAL)
change fuel filters (canister type only) 50.00 per engine, (PLUS FILTER COST)
winterize marine head, 75.00 no details. (for 75.00, I want details or a playmate can park her azz on my head)
winterize marine a/c system, 75.00 per system
winterize fresh water system, drain and bypass water heater, 175.00
are you kiddin' me?
are these prices in line with what y'all are seeing?
