How to Store your Jet Ski in Storage?

Properly storing your jet ski in a self-storage unit during the winter requires a few simple preparations. Here are some tips from the experts to ensure that your jet ski is ready to go when the warm weather returns:

1. Drain the Water System

Before storing your jet ski, drain all the water out of the system to prevent rust and gel. This applies to both gas and electric jet skis.

2. Protect the Engine and Compartment

Seal the engine compartment with a custom-fitted cover to keep moisture out and protect against dust, dirt, and bugs that can cause damage over time.

3. Secure the Thru-Hull

Seal the thru-hull, which leads from your jet ski's engine to your flotation device, with painter's tape, duct tape, or satellite cable clamps for added protection.

4. Clean the Exhaust System

Clean and degrease the jet ski's exhaust system before storing it. Drain any water or moisture in the exhaust before storing.

5. Use Silica Gel Packs

Place silica gel packs in the windshield, console, and seats to absorb moisture during storage. These packs are available at hardware and boating supply stores.

By following these tips, you can help ensure that your jet ski is in good condition and ready to use when the weather warms up again. Don't forget to remove the battery and store it in a cool, dry place, and cover your jet ski with a protective tarp or cover to prevent dust and debris buildup.
