If you're like most people, you've probably had your boat packed away for the last couple of months, waiting for the weather to truly warm up. Now that Spring is here, you've been doing Spring cleaning and home maintenance chores and now, its time to get your boat ready too. Here are some things to do to make sure your first boating excursion of the Spring is as awesome as you're expecting:
- Change the gas. Even though you may have used a gas stabilizer product to prevent corrosion in your tanks, there may still be water condensation. Emptying the existing gas and replacing it with fresh can save a real problem when you're on the water.
- Check the oil and if it hasn't been changed since last season, change it. Also check the fuel filters as well.
- Spring clean your boat inside and out. Even though you may have had it covered, boats still attract dust and spiders.
- Check over your trailer and regrease the wheel bearings. Doing so now cleans out the grit that has accumulated.
Now is also a great time to make sure you prepare ahead and review your boat insurance. Your auto insurance may provide some coverage but checking with a great insurance company like Gateway Professional Insurance Services
