Get schooled on outboard engine services

Taking care of your boat may not be glamorous, but it's vital for its longevity. Consistency is the secret to success when it comes to maintaining both the cleanliness of your boat and the health of its engine. By following simple management practices and staying consistent, you can enjoy peace of mind while sailing the open seas.


Stem the Tide

Prepare your boat for any environment it may encounter. From blistering sunlight to unforgiving humidity, or even the unpredictable water (fresh, brackish, salt - it doesn't matter), the challenges can threaten to dampen your boating season. Don't let small issues like corroded terminals, low trim fluid, or wasted zinc anodes ruin your outdoor adventures. Stay ahead of the game with regular engine services. By catching these problems before they escalate, you can prevent costly repairs and keep your boating experience smooth sailing. Whether you're a seasonal boater or cruise year-round, make sure to schedule a 100-hour service at least once a year - or twice a year for year-round cruisers. Not only will servicing your outboard extend the engine's lifespan, but it will also ensure your boat performs at its absolute best. Trust us, your boat will thank you.
