During the winter it is stored in an enclosed building.
Every winter the hull is repainted with antifoul paint and has been done ready for this summer. The engine is serviced every winter, gear box oil is changed and new spark plugs are fitted. If necessary the water pump impeller is replaced in fact it was replaced last autumn. I am a fastidious owner and leave nothing to chance.
