Time to get ready!

Wow! It has been a busy spring here at Peters Marine Service. We have been busy getting customers boats ready for the summer. Now is the prime time for you to start planning and getting your boat ready for spring. A good check of your boat and trailer is necessary to help ensure a great season of boating. Below is a list of items you may want to check for the upcoming season:

Comments are welcome in the section below.

Safety items:
Fire extinguishers all charged and ready?
Life jackets in good condition? No tears and do they still fit?
Flares expired?
Does the horn still work? Do you have a back up device?

Tire pressure ok?
Are the lug nuts still tight?
Did we grease the wheel bearings? Are the bearings OK?
Do the brakes work?

Do we have all of our bumpers, lines, and other equipment in the boat? Are they all in good condition?
Hey, where is that drain plug for the boat?
Has our engine been properly maintained? Fluid levels ok?

This is just a short list of items. Do you have any other suggestions? Feel free to leave them in the comment section below.
