Check your boat


Published on

Boating is a great activity, so it’s of little surprise that it is one of the most preferred activities of Americans. Considering 90% of the Americans live within one hour’s drive to a water body that permits boating, this is really not a surprise. However, the challenge is, not every month of the year allows boating. Barring a few states, there are times during the year when the boat is out of use. However, irrespective of whether the boat’s in use or not, it should be checked at regular intervals.
