With Spring just around the corner, be sure to call Kim to make your appointment for summerization – 540.297.7692 (service department).

Boat owners follow the seasons like clockwork. The boat comes out in the spring, has play time in the summer, and inevitably goes into hibernation during the cold winter months.  Maintaining your boat is a constant process, but it’s that last section of the cycle that needs the most attention. It takes a lot of work to winterize and then summerize  your boat. It’s tedious, but it’s essential to your machine’s longevity.

It’s worth mentioning that every boat—every make and model—has different procedures for testing its equipment, which is why it is good to have a qualified mechanic check your boat to prepare for spring and summer boating fun.

The summerization process includes checking the battery, fluids, belts, hoses, etc.  The technician also makes sure the engine starts easily, runs smoothly and shifts properly.  If you didn’t have your oil changed during the winterization process, now is the time to get it done.

Maintaining your boat is a full-time gig. Putting it away for the winter, getting it back on the water, and keeping it in good shape throughout the summer takes a lot of work. If you don’t follow through with each step, you could miss something that costs a lot of money to repair in the future.

REMEMBER – be sure to have your boat summerized, it is an essential part of its life cycle—don’t overlook it!png (3) crop again
