June 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 197

If you are an owner of a boat, then you must be aware of the increasing cost of maintaining a boat, even if there are simply regular servicing and maintenance. If repairing work is to be included, costs can tough sky high. Excessive expenditure over boat repairs can be cut down if learnt some basic maintenance and repairing work. Here are some top guidelines that can help you do maintenance and boat repairs yourself.

Care for boating batteries

Keep the boating batteries at home during winter seasons. The best place for them is on non-conductive stand with an option to trickle charge, to keep them alive all through the winter. Ensure that you check battery water in every few weeks.

Give your boat winter protection

Winter can harm your boat you can never imagine. Chilling and freezing winter can cause corrosion and damage to the boat, leading to the significant repair when you take it out in spring to make it water ready. The best way to protect it from rain, snow and freezing temperature is to cover the boat. However, the cover must allow some air to circulate even when it is covered.

Protect your sports boat's look

It is really fun to watch sports boats. Their shiny appearance and sleek look compels everyone to get attract. To maintain their attraction for longer, wash it at least once in a week. Inspect and clean it on routine basis. Also, look after its interior part, including upholstery, carpet and wooden accent.

Keep off water damage out of boat

Even if boat is meant for water, moist can cause damage to it by seeping in. While boating, you often neglect this part. You can eliminate such possibilities by taking care of your boat in off-season maintenance procedures when you keep it in storage. Remover water from any where it can stand inside boat, like traps under sinks, sea cocks, strainers, holding tanks and any corner that can hold water for longer.

Coat your boat with paint

As the time passes, boat starts losing its charm. You can retain its beauty by coating it with paint in off season when you are just planning it to store. To paint the boat wash it with mild soap and make sure that all dirt get cleaned well that collect over the season. Rinse, dry and then splash some water across the surface. When you varnish with paint you will see lasting till another season.

The idea which I explain here is got when I met to complete marine engineer, who do boat repairs in Australia, and offers Marine Boat Services.
