The temperature is climbing and it is time to get your boat ready for the water. Drag it out of storage and de-winterize it so you can enjoy your days out on the water. There are a few things to check before taking it out. We have a few tips for you to get you and your boat ready.
Check the Engine and Drivetrain
Check the power steering and power trim and coolant levels. If you did not change the oil before putting the boat into storage you need to do it now. Change the oil, filter, and other lubricants. It is also a good idea to check the spark plugs and wiring system. Replace components if you see any wear or damage.
Check the Sailboats
If you have a sailboat, be sure to check the sail. Check the fabric for any signs of wear or decay. Try out the pulleys and check the masts and rigging for damage. Replace or repair anything you think has excessive wear. Sometimes the cold winter months can reek havoc on your sail. You do not want to be caught out on the open water without functioning sails.
