I am a new boat owner, and as far I understand boats need to be winterize outside the water on freezing temperatures, is this a rule? because I keep on seeing boats in the water with 10 degrees fahrenheit
if there is a way to keep it in the water with freezing temperatures, can you explain?
thanks

This really depends on what boat you have and systems on board. Freshwater, heads and such need to be winterized whether itís in the water or out. At 10 degrees a boat in the water should have its engine winterized as well. Iím not in favor of keeping any I/O equipped boat in the water that sees freezing temperatures.

It's not so much the temperature, but the time at that temperature and whether you get hard freezes. Mid Atlantic states dropping to 10F for 36 hours isn't the same as New England or the Great Lakes dropping to 20-25F for 30 days.

It's more common in places like the mid-atlantic states, however I've seen boats stored in the water year round in Boston, Ma. too.

The slips need bubblers to keep the water from freezing around the boat. freshwater systems need to be winterized, engines needs to be winterized. That is, unless there is heat running internally on the boats, and the boat is used on a daily basis.
