Keeping the things we own in tip-top shape is always a good thing. It can keep hassles at a minimum, extend the life of an item and even save you money. That goes double for your boat.
It’s not like you can walk to a service station or your spouse can just pick you up if your vessel starts to sputter when you are on your way to your favorite fishing hole. It’s a tad more complicated than that when something goes wrong on a boat. You’re on the water and you want to pay particular care to your situation out there at all times – for safety sake as well as convenience.
We need to give our boats tender loving care so that they take care of us. Salt water, wind and rain take their toll on boat engines, parts and accessories. Their exteriors need to be protected from the elements too. For instance, if you leave your boat in a wet slip, you need to pull it out and clean and paint the bottom periodically.
Plus, making sure your boat is running optimally will do more for you than save you a boat towing call. Regular boat maintenance can save you money in the long run. Think of it this way…a little maintenance tweak here and there could ensure that you don’t have to deal with a big twonk later.
Additionally, for many folks, the inner workings of a boat may make car mechanics feel a little like a fish out of water, so you may not be able to keep up with the mechanics and maintenance of your boat the way you could with your land vehicles.
If you have any questions or would like to get a once over by trusted boat mechanics or be placed on a regular maintenance schedule that is convenient for you, just give Gerry’s full-service marina a call at 866-881-1100. You’ll get exceptional, affordable service with a smile and so much more!
