  • Cleaning & Care – Washing your boat on a regular basis is a good routine to get into. It will help counteract the long-term effects of environmental wear and tear. We also recommend routine waxing and anti-fouling to protect your vessel from the elements.
  • Battery Care – Check that your battery is properly charged and that it has the correct fluid levels. It is also a good idea to keep your battery clean inspect the batters surrounding environment, as dampness and dirt can also drain your battery.
  • Regular Inspection – Always keep your eye out for general wear and tear such as loose fittings, fraying robes; the small things are just as important.
  • Engine/Motor Care – Flush your engine after every use and check everything from your fuel tanks to clamps on your fuel line for rust, damage or corrosion.
