  2. 2. LITTLE KNOWN WAYS TO MAINTAIN YOUR BOATS All boats require regular maintenance and upkeep.

  3. 3.  Striking Submerged Objects A boat's motor and machinery can be damaged by submerged objects on the lake or offshore. Once a submerged object has been struck, examine the running gear to assure that all of the damages have been repaired.  Battery It is important to monitor the battery's fluid level. Maintaining the proper electrolyte level in the battery can save your boat.  Boat Lifts A boat lift is a convenient way to store and use your boat. It is recommended that the boat be removed from its lift and stored out of harm’s way during significant weather events like heavy squall or windstorm.

  4. 4. ROUTINE MAINTENANCE TIPS  Not Just Rust!! Rust stains often indicate a greater issue with your boat. This is a minor problem that can threaten to sink your boat and jeopardize passenger safety if it is neglected.  Propeller „s proper Maintenance It is advisable to clean the propeller, the propeller shaft and the strut periodically. A small film of marine growth on the propeller and shaft can slow-down the performance of a boat and keep the engine from functioning properly.  Boat Trailers It is important to regularly inspect and service the boat trailer. It is difficult to launch and retrieve the boat with worn trailer parts and also risk damaging the hull in transport. http://import-usa-boat.com.au/
  5. 5. MAINTENANCE OF BOAT MOTOR  Water Pump Impellers A small piece of rubber broken off of an impeller can cause major overheating problems.  Replace Engine Hoses All engine hoses should be checked periodically. Replace the cracked hoses.  Stuffing Box Needs A Check!! Check your boat's propeller shaft stuffing box for leakage. Improper adjustment or wear and tear can cause the standard adjustable stuffing box to leak. http://import-usa-boat.com.au/
  6. 6.  Nose Can Save You!! There should be no fuel smell. Smell indicates that there is a leak on the engine. Leakage can occur around fuel tank fittings fuel lines, fuel filters and carburetors.  Exhaust Risers and Manifolds Inspect your inboard engine's exhaust risers and manifolds for leakage. Leaking exhaust risers can allow water to seep into the engine.  Tune Your Prop Shaft Regularly examine your propeller shaft. A stiff shaft could indicate problems with the engine's alignment, strut, engine mounts or a bent shaft. MAINTENANCE OF BOAT MOTOR http://import-usa-boat.com.au/
