Frequently Asked Questions
🛥️ How often do I need to have my boat serviced?
We recommend having your motor serviced and waterpump impeller changed every two years or every one hundred hours. Check your boat or engine manufacturer’s owner’s manual for exact interval requirements.
🛥️ Do I need to clean my boat after every use?
If possible, yes. Wash it down thoroughly with a mild detergent and rinse thoroughly after each outing. This is especially important if your boat is in saltwater. Saltwater can damage a boat's fiberglass surfaces if not cleaned regularly.
🛥️ Can I launch and trailer a boat by myself?
Launching and loading a boat onto a trailer takes practice. While experienced boaters may be able to launch and trailer their boats solo, we recommend new boat owners have at least one other person help them if possible. You can also use a professional boat transport service to launch and trailer your boat for you.
Unlike storing your RV outdoors, you do not need to worry about draining your plumbing system and filling it with antifreeze. Indoor storage also protects your tires, so you won’t need to cover them to protect them from weather damage.
🛥️ Should I cover my boat when I’m not using it?
Definitely. If your boat will be stored inside, a good cover will help protect it from dust and pests. If it will be stored outside, a quality cover will protect your boat from the elements.
