Annual Maintenance / Lube Service –
Recommended at the end of the boating season annually. This service includes changing the engine oil & filter, changing the fuel filter, changing the outdrive gear lube, checking all fluid levels, and checking all accessories.
Impeller Replacement –
It is recommended by the manufacturing company that the impeller be checked annually. The impeller is the rubber component located in the sea pump, and is needed to pump cooling water through the engine to prevent overheating.
U-joint Service –
It is recommended by the manufacturing company that the outdrive be removed and the u-joints and engine alignment be checked annually.
Bellow Service –
It is recommended by the manufacturing company that the bellows be replaced every 3 years. The rubber bellow is located on the back of the boat at the outdrive and keeps water out of the u-joints and gimble bearing.
A tune-up is recommended every 2 years. It consists of replacing the spark plugs, checking the ignition components and replacing as necessary, and checking the engine adjustments
TIMING IS EVERYTHING
For those who prefer to store their boat for winter, we offer winterizing, but because our service department stays very busy, it is recommended you call in September or early October to get the date you want.
November and December are reserved for winterize services.
March and April are reserved for summerize services.
Our spring and summer schedule can be very busy. If you wait to have your maintenance work done at this time, please allow 2 to 4 weeks, as boats that will not run will be our first priority.
