Basic Marine Maintenance to Protect Your Boat
While your boat doesn't take extensive regular maintenance, it does need your attention and the right products. If you are interested in protecting the lifespan of your boat, Ace Hi Oil
has some easy to follow tips
to keep your boat ready when you need it.
Start With Visible Wear and Debris
The best place to start is by cleaning any visible build up with fresh water and a marine appropriate scrubbing brush. Pay attention to any grooves in the design of your hull and the seals around the windows as these places are often hard to reach and can accumulate buildup quickly.
Take Care of Your Propeller
Because it is unseen and presumably only operates around water, many people presume it doesn't incur damage. Take the time to lift your engine and thoroughly inspect the condition of your propeller and blades. Small pieces of wood or debris through the water can cause small nicks or cuts in your baldes, leading to a loss in performance and an increase in fuel consumption.
Prevent Engine Wear on Your Boat
The old saying 'I'll do it when I get back' doesn't really work when you're stuck in the middle of the sea. Before you head out, check your fuel, oil and lubricant levels and tend to anything that is looking a little slow. Utilizing a purpose designed
marine engine lubricant is a good way to know your engine is being protected while you drive.
