Every family has things that they like to do together. There are a variety of activities that your family can choose from when they are trying to find things that work for them. Swimming, camping, sports, Broadway plays, board games, crafts, traveling, music, and more are all popular choices for families across the country to participate in. It does not matter what you choose to do with your family, the important thing is that you spend time together. Your family may have chosen to purchase a boat. Spending time on the ocean or lake with your family provides you with an opportunity to develop relationships and make memories together. You will want to make sure that you take care of your boat properly so that it can continue to provide your family with hours of entertainment. Many boat owners do not know how to take care of their boat.
Boat Oil Change & Tune Up
One of the first things that you will want to do is having your oil changed on a regular basis. Just like you need to change the oil in your car, you also need to change the oil in your boat. You should change the oil in your boat after 50 hours of use or every six months. When you take your boat in for an oil change you should also have them do a tune-up on your boat. During a tune-up you will want to make sure that they check your spark plugs, plug wires, rotor, distributor cap, and all of the other important parts of your boat. Your fuel injection system should also be checking during the process. The fuel filter will need to be replaced yearly as well. There are lots of other parts of your boat that will need to be checked regularly to ensure that your boat stays in working condition. The propeller, gear lube, impeller, and drive bellows also need to be taken care of consistently.
Clean Exterior of Boat After Every Use
Every time that you use your boat you will want to make sure that you clean it well. Many boat owners simply do not understand the importance of this step of boat maintenance. When you use a car you do not need to clean it after every drive. But when you use a boat you will want to clean it after every use. If the water is not properly cleaned off of your boat it could cause your boat to dull or discolor.
