Re: winterizing cost

That seems high. I paid $430 for winterizing engine and fresh water system. Included in that price was $190 of supplies the most expensive item being 12 gallons of antifreeze totaling $82. Labor was 3 hrs @ $80/hr. This includes changing oil and all new filters.

Re: winterizing cost

Its really funny to call rip off with NO FACTS

Its is not at all clear to me the scope of the work done OR the amount of the boat that had to be taken APART to do it while working around fine wood finishes that i am sure you expect to be repaired should anything be scuffed

I havea 43 year old boat and it still takes a good bit of caution to NOT knick anything while doing my DIY winterize

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Water tank to drain and then pump dry. Holding tank to pump? 2 heads, fresh water system, hot water heater to bypass, AC system, engine plus some plumbing. 5-8 hoses were removed and replaced since there were no valves, 10 gallons of PG at least (vendor has no reason to skimp). At $80/hour, yup, adds up.

I can do mine in less than and hour, but that is because I know the drill, installed valves, the boat has excellent access,and I have a simpler boat. From what I can guess all of the posters have smaller boats. I can see $800 at yard rates.

It's the 2nd head that did it

Re: winterizing cost

I just got the bill for mine, $254. I will for sure do this myself next year. As for the $501 for shrink wrap and a door, I think indoor storage is in order for next year also. Maybe even a canvas cover if I can talk the wife into it!

I'll chime in that it sounds like typical yard rates to me.

For the sake of comparison, here are the rates that my yard, in RI, charges;
Quote:

Sailboats w / mast(s) stepped require additional propping & seasonal care 35' and over .......................$300.00
Shrink Wrap (Doors & Bridges extra) (materials included) Recycling Mandatory......................................... .......................see chart
MECHANICAL WINTERIZATION: All boats winterized by Yard must have batteries on board.
Engines: 4 Cylinders or less .................................................. .................................................. ................................$150.00

Store & winterize outboard: same as engines above
3 - 10 H.P. .................................................. .................................................. .......................................$100.00
11 - 49 H.P. .................................................. .................................................. ....................................... $110.00
50 - up H.P. .................................................. .................................................. ..........................................T & M
Remove & store outdrive .................................................. .................................................. .........................................$300.00

Store mast outside .................................................. .................................................. ............................................$4.00 / ft.
Store mast outside (unstepped by owner.) Mast must be marked with owner’s name ................................$6.00 / ft.
Remove sails............................................. .................................................. ............................................. T & M
I am not justifying any of this, but only providing an example. I would happily do any of the work for ˝ of what they charge. I also do all of my own winterization.


I WISH that I could pay $501 to shrink wrap my 35 footer. It costs me closer to $950 to have them do it.
