With summer fast approaching, the team at Ross Insurance Agency, Inc. has built a list of helpful boating maintenance advice in order to help people get their boats off the racks and onto the water.
New England winters are the harshest around, and it’s more than likely that your boat suffered from the cold temperatures, strong winds, and heavy snow. While you were busy plowing your driveway, your boat was getting batter by the bad conditions. Since water activities are a favorite for many Massachusetts residents, Ross Insurance Agency Inc. is here to make sure your boat is properly prepared to hit the water.
•De-winterize your engine: The engine is the most crucial part of the boat and over the winter things like water, acids, and other byproducts build up so it is important to get rid of these. It’s important to change the oil to prevent corrosion and excessive wear which can lead to less power and even engine failure.
•Inspect the hull: Carefully check the hull for chips and cracks as well foreign residue. If the boat’s hull is chalky it could indicate oxidation. Also, cleaning and waxing the hull is important to prevent barnacles and dirt from sticking to your boat.
•Replace and test all electronics: Bring all the electronics back on board and do a complete and thorough test to make sure everything is working properly. Test the radio, GPS, compass, depth finder, and any additional important tools or gadgets.
Most importantly, the new season offers a chance for boat owners to re-think their Massachusetts watercraft insurance policy. Keeping up-to-date on what your current plan coverage offers is important to knowing whether or not you have the correct amount of boat coverage.
