Preparing your boat will definitely take you some time. The seasons takes their toll on everything, and can often make it feel overwhelming to try to get the boat back into the condition you want. Use these tips before you take her out on the water for some summer action and fun.
Clean Until It Hurts
Cleaning is not only necessary to get out all the disgusting accumulation of grime, dirt and leaves, but it’s also the best way for you to see what else needs to be done with the boat. When you’re going over everything with a fine-tooth comb, you can see whether or not you have to replace spare parts or if anything has started to come apart at the seams. Small leaks can often go unnoticed, but cleaning will force you to look at the nooks and crannies of your boat.
Examining the Inside
The batteries, engine, spark plugs and oil (among other things) all need to be ready before you get your motor running. Ensure that your fluids are at the right levels, and check your tanks. Examine the wires, and replace or fix any that are starting to fray. Look over your light bulbs, and ensure that you have spares for emergencies.
