Sea-Doo Storage tips

Keep your Sea-Doo at peak performance, season after season.

 

Preparing your watercraft for storage during months of non-use is a critical maintenance step to ensure your prized Sea-Doo stays in top shape. And yes, even if you live down south!


1: Propulsion System

 

Clean the jet pump by spraying water in its inlet and outlet and applying a good quality Marine Grease.

Remove the impeller cover and check if water has penetrated the jet pump.

2: Fuel System

 

Verify the fuel system. Check fuel hoses for leaks.  Replace damaged hoses or clamps if necessary.

Prior to engine lubrication, add Fuel Stabilizer and make sure that your fuel tank is completely full. This prevent fuel deterioration and fuel system gumming

3: Engine

 

Drain the exhaust system and intercooler.

Test the coolant density using an antifreeze  hydrometer; replace the coolant if necessary. Replace coolant at least every 5 year or 300 hours (whichever comes first).

Lubricate the internal parts of the engine. See fogging procedure.

4: Engine Compartment

 

Clean the engine compartment and wipe up any residual water.

Spray anti-corrosive spray over all metallic  components only in the engine compartment, while minimizing overspray.

Leave the seat partially open during storage to prevent engine compartment condensation and possible corrosion.

5: Electrical System

Remove the battery.

6: Body and Hull

Apply a good quality marine wax on the body and hull.

If the watercraft is to be stored outside, cover it with an opaque tarpaulin to protect your watercraft from sun rays, grime and dust.
