The 2020 boating season is officially here, and MAGNA1 could not be more thrilled. The boating weather this year has already been spectacular, and we know there are only more beautiful summer days ahead. Boating season is an exciting time for families and friends all across the country. It’s a great way to spend quality time with loved ones while enjoying spring and summer sun on the water. However, it is not always fun and games when your boat has an issue or malfunction midday. Take a look at these tips to help you and your family properly prepare for boating season so that you never waste a gorgeous day working on your boat again.
Check your paperwork.
Before you take the boat out on the water, it is a good idea to make sure all of your licenses and insurance policies are good through the end of the boating season. If they aren’t, go ahead and get these renewed to ensure your safety and security. Plus, it feels amazing to get that checked off the list for the year!
Check up on the fuel system.
Before starting up your boat, make sure the fuel system is in tip-top shape. Check for cracks, leaks, and anything loose. At this step, go ahead and change your fuel filter for the season to make sure everything runs smoothly all season long!
Check on the battery.
Visually check your battery by making sure there is no acid damage or corrosion. Then, get all the wires connected and test it out! If anything is not functioning properly, get it fixed before getting out on the water.
Check the engine belts.
First, check to see if all belts are in good shape. If any seem worn, replace them. Also, make sure that all your belts are tight and fit securely to ensure the engine functions properly and the belts don’t wear too quickly.
Change your oil.
Finally, before hitting the water, change your oil and your oil filter. For the highest quality and maximum performance, replace your old oil with MAGNA1’s 4-Stroke 10W-30 synthetic blend oil. This oil will last you all season long. If you are someone that doesn’t mind changing your oil each and every time you head out on the water, our 2-Stroke oil is the one for you. This oil still maintains maximum quality and is complete with our FunLPro No-Spill cap system so you never have to worry about spilling or having any oil go to waste.
