KEEPING YOUR BOAT IN GOOD SHAPE

Fishing season is here, and it’s the perfect time to get your boat out for some fun on the water. Big Item Storage wants you to have a great time out there, so here are a few tips to help your boat stay in great shape this season.

Before even getting your boat out on the water, make it a habit to check your engine and propeller. Even if you are confident of their condition, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Check for leakage, dents in the metal, and to ensure everything runs smoothly. Also, keep your boat topped up on fuel. This will prevent moisture from getting into your tank. If anything looks off, take it into a certified shop to get checked out. It only takes one missed detail to lead to a problem

When you are out on the water, you should do your best to keep your boat dry. Moisture of any kind can become an issue if left to its own devices. Some of the risks are corroded metal and mildew growth. These problems can be a mere hassle, but they can easily turn into something expensive. Keep a few towels on your boat for the sole purpose of wiping up any stray water that gets onto your boat. If you do spot corrosion, make sure to tackle it immediately.

These few small things can keep your boat going for years to come!
