Maintenance Tips for Your Boat

Maintaining your boat regularlyHere Are Some Things to Check On

The look and condition of your boat is extremely important if you’re a boat owner. If you don’t keep checking up on your boat, you’ll never want to go out on the boat because problems will arise, and it will end up sitting unused for years. Rust and mold will develop, which will make the appearance unattractive. We want to remind you that your boat needs to be taken care of for your enjoyment to be satisfactory. Here are some tips:

  • Make sure to wash your boat after use and on a regular basis
  • Dry the interior after use
  • Inspect every area of the boat for mold, rust, corrosion, propeller problems
  • Check engine before every outing
  • Keep an oil schedule
