Boat Maintenance

Keep your boat running as strong as it's first hour on the water.

Proper maintenance is the key to enjoying your investment for many years to come.

Of course we perform regular oil changes, tune-ups and overhauls for almost all makes and models. But are you aware of how often these services should be performed and what items should be checked, replaced or maintained?

Here is the service you should be performing Yearly

Yealry Spring Service

We call this our "Spring Service" as that's the most common time of year to have this service performed. It is really important to do a thorough job and most of this work is best done by an authorized service technician.

Yearly Spring Service Includes:

  • Oil Change
  • Impeller Change (for most inboard applications)
  • Clean the Fuel System (debris will have built up over the winter)
  • Maintain Battery Charge
  • Safety Inspection (bilge pumps, lights, blower motors)


Performing winterization service on your boat will save you hundreds of dollars in future repair bills! Plus, you will prolong your boat's life, maintain the boat's value and be sure your boat will be ready to go next season.

Winterization Service Includes:

  • Stabilizing the fuel that remains in the tank
  • Circulating the stabilizer throughout the fuel system
  • Fogging the cylinder (coats cylinder walls to prevent rust)
  • Draining all water from the engine to prevent any possibility of freezing
  • Disconnecting the Batteries (We do recommend that boat owners invest in a battery tender or minder, to prolong battery life)
  • One more tip: Make sure the fuel tank is all the way full before storing to prevent condensation from forming in the tank. This can cause major fuel system problems in the future.

Shrink Wrapping

Yes, we know it might sound funny, but shrink wrapping your boat before storing it for the winter is a great idea.shrink wrapped boat

Here's why:

  • Protects your boat from scratches while transporting and storing
  • Protects your boat from the elements if left stored outside
  • Will not chafe or damage covered boats
  • Our shrinkwrap covers can be ventilated to eliminate moisture and mildew problems. We also offer Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors that keep moisture from forming on metal or electrical circuits

Every 100 Hours You should have a tune-up!

  • Flushing the out drive with fresh fluid
  • Remove and replace the impeller

  • Replace the water fuel separator
  • Replace the Fuel Filter
  • Remove and replace the spark plugs
