    Summertime Boating

    The summer is here and the weather is cooperating. People are enjoying their boats. Everything seems to be wonderful. However now is not the time to get too complacent. In between trips to Block Island or before a lazy Sunday cruise around the bay is a great time to check over the boat. With the temperatures getting hotter, so to can the temperatures of the water in your boats batteries. Be sure to check them to make sure the water hasn't "boiled" out of them. If they are low, be sure to fill them. Check the batteries manufacturer's specs on the correct procedure for filling and the proper fluid to use. Also take the time to give your vessel a halfway through the season cleaning. Not just the interior of the boat or inside the cabin, but also the hull as well. A quick washing and waxing will get the salt off from the ocean spray and help keep it protected throughout the rest of the summer and into the fall season. One last thing is to also periodically check the bottom of your boat. With the warmer temperatures also comes algae growth and barnacles. Algae growth and barnacles can clog water intake strainers, stick to the hull and props causing performance related issues and attach to transducers, hindering depth/ sonar readings. With the boat anchored and the engines shut off, take dip and check the condition of the bottom of the boat. If you don't want to take a dive, we do offer hauling the boat out of the water to check the hull of the boat for you. Performing these tasks will help keep you boating and enjoying the summer season.

    Update Your Electronic Charts!

    Whether you own Raymarine, Garmin, Lowrance, etc., electronics, it is a great idea to update the navigational charts periodically for these electronics. Companies like Navionics release thousands of updates throughout the year to keep boaters aware of coastline and buoy changes, newly marked submerged structures and much more. Stay informed on these changes and updates by updating your electronic navigational charts today.
