First of all, we highly recommend storing your boat inside. We
would also suggest that you drain the keels or bilge and cover
the boat to keep the debris out. If you have an electric boat,
we suggest disconnecting the battery after charging it fully and
attaching a trickle charger.
Drain the bilge water from the keels (Encore and Escapade) or
fully pump the water from the Escapade; and sponge out the
balance of the water from the Escapade's bilge. Cover the
boat tightly to keep dirt, moisture and small squirrels out.
