Summary: This article discusses about how well you can maintain your speed boat and what regular checkups needs to be done so that it can be in very good shape. The water boat enthusiasts will enjoy reading this article.

 

Here we would be focusing on how well you can maintain your speed boat, but generally it covers almost every type of boat that is fishing boat, a cruiser or a yacht, each and every boat requires regular maintenance work or activity at regular intervals of time. As boats are major investments and any kind of major technical error or any kind of breakdown now when you require it most will not just be disheartening, it could also be hazardous. The following points are to be considered:

 

Engine

 

The best time to perform annual speed boat maintenance is during the winter season while the engine is being winterized. Winterizing a boat is essential if it will be exposed to cold and damp weather. Firstly, it should be flushed with water. Once the engine is drained then it can be washed with soapy water and then rinsed. After rinsing, all fuel from the hoses and carburettors are to be drained, so that evaporated fuel does not build up.

 

Water pump impellers

 

They are generally made of metal or rubber. Metal impellers sometime show signs of rusting over a period and rubber impellers usually become dry and crack after a certain period. It may even cause overheating problems for the boat motor.

 

Shaft

 

It should be examined at regular intervals to understand that shaft is moving flexibly or not.

 

Stuffing Box

 

Due to improper adjustment, your boat's propeller shaft stuffing box can leak. It should be checked for any leaks as a stuffing box that might cause your boat to sink.

 

Other

 

The fuel filter and water separator should be replaced annually to prevent clogs. Before winter, make sure your boat fuel tank is full and add a fuel stabilizer. It is very vital that the owners consulting the manual, or an experienced marine mechanic may well be a good way before attempting the Boat Motor Repair task alone.

 

Annual Maintenance

 

Make sure you do annual checkups and cover the oil, lower end fluid, and drive old should be changed as well as all filters. Keeping an annual medical exam will keep your speed boat in very good shape. Most of times it is the Boat Mechanic who provide the maintenance service to the customers. The customers should also make sure that they get deal with authentic dealers when it gets to buying the boats. The customers should take care that the maintenance part is taken care by the dealer and is inclusive in the deal.
