Get to Know It

How can you successfully take care of a complex machine if you don't know anything about it? You can't! This is why, first and foremost, you need to take some time to learn more about your marine vehicle. The easiest way to do this is to read through the owner's manual. In it, you'll find out more about how it operates, about its components and how they work, any restrictions it has, and how you can keep it working properly for longer.

Keep Your Boat's Components in Check

Surely, you get on your boat so you can have a fun, relaxing time with friends and family while you're out on the water. Well, unless you want that experience to turn sour, it's necessary that you inspect your marine vehicle's components on a regular basis to verify that they're performing as desired. If you're unsure about what exactly you should be looking for, don't worry. Here's a checklist of the things you need to oversee. It's recommended that you work through it before each time you head out.
  1. If you want your boat to actually get out of the dock, then you need to verify that the fuel system will be able to provide the power it needs to do just that. If it's damaged or leaking, you may end up stranded in the middle of the water. It's also necessary that you refill its fuel properly. Watch Grady-White Boats' video to do it expertly.
  2. Needless to say, the boat's cooling system is also pretty important, as it helps regulate the engine's temperature and keeps it from getting too heated. An integral part of the system is the water pump, which needs to be supervised regularly to ensure the rubber impeller isn't in need of replacement.
  3. Next up is the boat's battery, which, as you're probably aware, is the one who gives your boat electrical power, which enables key components for the vehicle's adequate functioning. Ensure it's in mint condition before you make your way into the water.
  4. Life jackets, fire extinguishers, first-aid kits, communication devices, among other safety equipment should also be looked after, as you never know when they could be needed. So you're not caught off guard in an emergency, examine their condition before you embark on your adventures.
  5. Finally, it's extremely important that you pay mind to your marine vehicle's fluids (for example, the synthetic marine engine oil): they should be clean and in the right quantity. While you're at it, check to see if there are any leaks going on.

Remember to Clean It

A maintenance task that could be easily forgotten is cleaning your marine vehicle on a regular basis. Contrary to what you may believe, allowing it to sit all filled with dirt and filth can do much more than just make it look bad. In fact, those nasty particles can wear it down much faster and can impede an adequate performance. That's why, if you'd like to elongate its lifespan, you will have to remember to clean it regularly. It's even recommended that you use a wax to help protect it.

Have a Professional Inspect It

As a last tip, be sure to have your boat professionally inspected with some regularity. This doesn't mean just taking it in whenever you see a problem with it. Routine inspections will help you guarantee that it continues working as a well-oiled machine since a professional will be able to evaluate it and fix any areas that need fixing, as well as share expert advice that can help you take better care of it.
