Regardless of snowy mountains and cold temperatures, the crew at the Resort Boat Shop in Coeur d’Alene is always getting ready and excited for warm weather and boating season. Summer will be here quicker than you think, and with it, time to get back out on the water.
For now, your boat is probably winterized at a professional storage facility or maybe even undergoing routine maintenance. However, when you’re ready to get back out on the water, be it Lake Coeur d’Alene or any other beautiful Northwest lake, it is important to properly commission the boat for summer. Here’s the top three reason why, and what you should do:
- Fix any problems
Before you get back out on the water, have your boat commissioned for summer. This way, you’ll find any issues that can be fixed during the season when your boat is not in use.
- Complete basic maintenance
Now is the time to take care of basic maintenance, such as oil changes, replacing or changing filters, seawater pump impellers on main engines and generators. Also take this opportunity to check all fluids, gasoline, batteries and even your lights to make sure everything is in proper condition.
- Keep your boat going for years to come
Commissioning your boat for summer helps to ensure your vessel’s longevity.
