  2. Winterize the boat yourself, or take it to your local marina.
  3. Dry out and store fabric accessories (life jackets and cushions).
  4. Check your windows for air leaks.
  5. Check rafters and eaves for critter entry points.
  6. Bleed the pipes and shut off the water supply.
  7. Vacuum and check the furnace.
  8. Unplug every appliance, big and small.
