No storage! It's $65 a month to store outside, and that's not happening. It will be indoors.

I don't know. If they do it like I do mine it sounds about right but mine includes detailing the engine, bilge, interior, hull and trailer as well as all the normal engine, ballast and heater work to get the boat ready for the winter. It's all depend on what's included.

My local dealer offers a menu that includes pretty much what I've included above and the price for that I could quickly surpass the price you were quoted. It's all going to depend on what's on the list.

Being in Canada I would expect a good chunk of that is going to be inflated service parts prices, environmental fees and taxes in some form or another. As a comparison we recently purchased a Blue Ray Player for out cottage just outside Windsor. The base price for the device was about 15% more than in the states, the taxes on it were 5% more and to add insult to injury they added a recycling fee on top of all the rest of the taxes. I really like going to Canada but it's getting really expensive to hang out there. Even beer at out local dive bar has gotten to $4 a pint.

If your in Sask you must be talking about Martin? Everything i've ever priced there was way higher than anywhere else. I would take it to the cheaper dealer, its not exactly rocket science and $850 seems crazy to me.

Sounds like MMS to me. I always got mine done there, mostly due to the fact that I always had a list of warranty to do. I think alot of the high price comes with the fact they have enough "actual, real" work to do, so if you want them to take the two(?) hours to do your maintenace, then it'll cost ya.
I'm positive they would have no problem with you observing the process. Of course don't make a two hour job last for four hours. The old "Shop rate $50/hour, if you watch $75/hour, if you help $200/hr" comes into effect haha. They are pretty damn busy there, and probably short staffed. I would say the more menial tasks we can do, the happier they are.

I'm pretty happy with the crew there. Actually looking at getting a 2014 X30 as I type.

Yes, I am very happy with the sales team. They go above and beyond to make me happy. I want to give them the business, but when I talked to them today, there list was the same as the other guys. As far as the winterizing went. And if I can get it done for 1/2 the price??? Well, I'm sorry but I will be taking it to the cheaper place. O ya, the list was oil change, antifreeze through entire system, and a hull inspection. That's it. Thanks for your input guys.

Oil + Filter and ATF - must be real 'spensive in the great white north.. - what do you get with a hull inspection? Lift off trailer an a look with --xray glasses?

Well if you can't do it yourself then whatever the market will bear.
Takes about $100 in parts including a new impeller, all the fluids and filter. Not the trans and fuel filter another $100 for those but they only need done every few hundred hours if at all.

Takes me about 3 hours to completely winterize the boat.

$850 sounds extreme. More like $400 at $100/ hr labor.

Not sure many shops will let you watch them do the work. Typically insurance rules prevent customers being in the service areas unless for a brief, escorted visit to look at/discuss a repair.
