Correct Rib Maintenance

By | Boat, Cleaning, Exterior, important, Interior, Maintenance, servicing, Winter

As with any type of boat, maintenance of your Rigid Inflatable Boat, or rib, will help maintain both its value and its longevity for many a year to come if done properly.

The most important time to consider rib care and maintenance is at the end of the season, when the full scope of wear and tear incurred becomes apparent. Should you not have the required knowledge, skill or expertise in order to ensure that your Rib is being taken care of properly, then we recommend you bring in a dedicated boat mechanic how will know his way round your rib better than you do.

End of Season

When you take your rib out of the water at the end of the season, ensure that non-lubricated parts of your rib have not become stuck, establish whether any water has entered its tailfin and check that its engine starts without problems.

Apply antifouling if it applies to the kind of material your particular rib is made out of. Check all accessories to ensure they are in good working order. In addition, lubricate any moving parts and preserve petrol in its tank over the winter.

Engine Considerations

With specific reference to your engine, replace its oil and filter if you have a four-stroke engine. The petrol filter should also be replaced. Check your engine’s spark plugs and replace them if necessary. Clean it block if there is any leftover residue, together with applying an anti-corrosion later and lubricating any moving parts. Also change the tailfin oil, check your engine’s propeller and lubricate the propeller shaft. Conduct an engine diagnosis if possible too to check if there is anything wrong which may not be immediately apparent through observation.

Fabric

Also pay special attention to your Rib’s fabric at all times, because it is obviously made out of material which can wear down if not maintained properly.

How to Care for your Boat

By | Boat, Cleaning, Exterior, Interior, Learning, Maintenance, servicing, Uncategorized

Regardless of the kind of boat you own, it’s important to care for it properly in order to ensure your safety and maintain its longevity. Care for your boat with pride! In this entry, we tell you exactly how to do it.

Storage

If indoor storage is an option for you, then we highly encourage you to store your boat indoors. It provides the best protection and care for your boat against the elements bar none. Rain, cold, wind and UV rays in the sunnier months can all cause damage to your boat, so it is best they are avoided it when it isn’t in use. Cover it up to prevent moisture, dust and debris build-up.

Routine Maintenance

It’s important to check over key aspects of your boat routinely and see to them if and when needed. If you don’t have any technical know-how whatsoever, take a course in basic boat maintenance. The most important things to consider are your boat’s bilge pumps, engine, oil, electrical system, propeller and hull.

Regular Cleaning

Think about all the things that could affect your boat’s hull, namely aquatic pests such as barnacles attaching themselves to it, algae, plant growth and rust. Not only do all these things corrode your hull, they also can make you boat perform less efficiently, affecting its performance. Set up a cleaning schedule which is devised according to how much time your boat spends in the sea.

Get Insured

Boat insurance is always a good thing to have in order to care for your boat, because you never know what might go wrong both when it’s moored or when you’re at sea. Take a look at a previously blog entry to find who our recommended insurer is.

Essentials When Servicing a Boat

By | Boat, important, Maintenance, servicing, Tips, Winter, Yacht

Servicing a boat you own at regular intervals in order to protect your investment, maintain your boat’s value and prolong its working life.

100 Hour Service

First things’ first – regular oil changes are a must. As general rule, change you boat engine’s oil and filter after every 100 hours of use. At this interval, you should also flush the outdrive with fresh fluid, replace the water fuel separator, fuel filter and spark plugs. You should also replace the cap, rotor and points as needed. Take a look at your boat’s trailer at this interval also to check if any maintenance work is needed on that.

Spring Service

Each spring, we recommend that a thorough service is undertaken on your boat. This should consist of an oil change, an impeller change if you have an inboard engine, a thorough clean of the fuel system to take care of any debris built up over the winter, maintenance of the battery charge and a full safety inspection of your boat’s lights, bilge pumps and blower motors.

Winterisation Service

When putting your boat away for the winter, you should have a winterisation service performed to ensure it’s ready to go when the weather turns for the better.

The first thing to have done as part of a winterisation service is stabilising the fuel left in your boat’s tank. It’s a good idea to fill up its fuel tank entirely before mothballing it for the winter. This is to prevent condensation from forming inside the tank.

Circulate the stabiliser throughout your boat’s entire fuel system and coat its cylinder walls with rustproofing in order to prevent any rust from proliferating. Also disconnect its batteries. It is advisable to invest in a battery tender to ensure they last as long as possible.

Following these essential servicing steps will ensure servicing a boat precious to you will last for many a year to come!
