As it is coming in to peak boating season with summer now upon us we thought we would chat with Julian from JNC Marina about how to Summer Check your boat to ensure it is in top condition for you to safely enjoy your boat this season.
Top Tips For Keeping Your Boat In Shape
1. Make sure all your annual maintenance has been performed all these areas should be addressed. Antifoul/Prop speed/Gel coat polish/Engine service/ Steering system & Electrical/Anchor winch/Bilge pumps and radio checks/Check gas cylinders and your bbq fittings – you don’t want to get caught out when out on the water.
2. Check all mooring lines and fenders. Make sure covers/dogers and biminis are secure and ready to use for your first and every trip.
3. If you are a Yacht owner you should also check Rigging/running rigging and sails.

Another consideration for all boat owners is having your boat professionally cleaned at the beginning or end of the summer season. Robert [whose family are also berth owners here at Hidden Harbour Marina] owns and runs Port Phillip Hull Cleaning recommends a good hull cleaning should always be a part of your regular maintenance routine. They offer a professional scuba dive cleaning and maintenance to the underside of your vessel and even offer GoPro footage of the hull before and after service so you are assured of the quality outcome.
