It’s always a great idea to have your boat “summer-ized” by a certified mechanic. With a thorough inspection, they are able to tell if something is out of sync and correct any potential problems before you head out for a weekend on the lake.
Hopefully your boat was winterized and fuel stabilizer was used to keep the fuel from turning bad during the winter months. Charging the battery is always a good idea to ensure that it hasn’t lost any power due to inactivity in the cooler months. However, the most important thing to check before your boat hits the water this spring is the drain plug! Make sure the plug or plugs are in place and snug before launching.
Plus, as boating season begins, it’s always a great idea to inventory life jackets, the throw floatation device, fire extinguisher, and verify that you registration is current. Be safe and have a great summer of boating on Lake Keowee!
