We hate to say it but before we know it the darker days and nights will be here and we will be back wrapped up in coats and hats again!

Boats are a good investment if you don’t overshoot your budget. If you research your options and go for a vessel that you can afford, nothing trumps the joy of spending time on the water. However, a boat can definitely also be a bad investment. A rule of thumb is to only buy a boat you can afford to pay for in cash.

Do you know about boats and how to repair them? This is the time to get a mechanic job the Canada’s largest marina is actively hiring marine mechanics.

The bullet bass boats are designed by Don Edberg and are now being marketed under their own label; The Edberg Bass Boat Company. These boats have a long standing history with the local Texas tournament golfers and for good reason, as they are a great boat for any level player. This article will explain why these boats are so good for people who aren’t looking to be champions but still want to play bass.

Sadly the boat doesn’t seem quite as appealing as it did in the sunshine, so to prepare you for the inevitable, we have compiled a short list of protective measures to think about once you decide to wrap the boat up for another season:

  1. Give your boat a proper clean – Full super structure clean with a little wax to protect, check for flaking, chips and make the necessary repairs, clean your sprayhoods and full canopy/covers getting rid of any debris or residue.
  2. Resolve any boat leaks – condensation and damp just doesn’t leave our boats alone in the winter so do what you can to resolve any known leaks before they get worse, this article might help you fixing it.
  3. Mould – Gets into everything so to prevent it ruining your upholstery, take the upholstery home to keep dry and warmer or if not possible due to lack of storage, try for a little circulation with a de-humidifier or August Race Boat Bomb!
  4. Remove all perishable items ie. food and clean your fridge and freezer!
  5. The Engine – Contact a professional marine engineer direct and ask for suitable advice on how to winterise your engine specifically
  6. Disconnect your battery – if you really are not going to be using your boat over the winter period, saves potentially having to fork out for a new one if left on whilst not using the boat.
  7. Check your boat! Make sure you visit your regularly to check on things, it will only help you come Spring!
