Boat Winterization Services & Boat Motor Winterization.....................

An important part of standard boat maintenance is to ensure that your boat has been appropriately winterized. Tanglewood Marine offers comprehensive boat and boat motor winterizing services for outboards, inboards and stern drives. 

We recommend protecting your boat from the harsh Chicago winter that can corrode or permanently damage sensitive boat machinery. 

We will ensure that your boat has a comfortable and uneventful winter season, and is in tip-top shape for next summer.
