If you’re trying to find a durable battery, we propose that you simply provides a attend a deep cycle one. Primarily, these batteries are far better than regular ones as far as efficiency, maintenance and sturdiness are concerned. apart from this, these 100Ah deep cycle battery are good for the environment. Therefore, more and more people are starting to use these units in situ of other sorts of batteries.  There is a vast list of online shops for you to visit to, after that you can decide on which store can give you products and services at a very reasonable price. In this way, you can be sure that the amount you are paying for is equivalent to its value. The best way to evaluate the website, which you are planning to acquire specific materials, is through reading the customer reviews and product description. The boat can be repaired after storm, by visiting to the mechanic but all parts of the boat are damaged so you would probably need to install a new parts but don’t reply on mechanic for the parts. a good idea to protect your outboard motor with a durable and high quality outboard motor stand. This type of stand is used to mount and transport your outboard motor for your convenience. You can browse around this site for more details about boat stands. The stand is basically made up of wheels and a cart that can be installed before delivery, or you can install it yourself. Aside from easy transport of outboard motor, a stand is also used to help drain water from your boat by holding it upright. It also keeps water away from the engine and other mechanical parts of your boat.  you have a cool way of comparing things, making you decide on what is better, what will give you long lasting materials and better results from the moment you involve yourself in water sport or any other boating experience. Fog your boat engine by revving the engine to about 1500 rpm and spray fogging oil into the carburetor. When the RPMs begin to drop, shut off the engine. This will coat the cylinder walls with oil and prevent corrosion building up over the winter months. Fogging oil is not only frequently a sale item in the off-season, you can usually find internet coupons for additional savings. Because owning a boat is a considerable expense, it can be tempting sometimes to cut corners by buying aftermarket parts. But do you really want to risk your safety (and the safety of your friends and family) on parts made from who-knows-what and manufactured in some anonymous facility somewhere? The answer to that should be a firm “NO!” Parts made by a reputable manufacturer in a certified facility and sold by an authorized dealer are far less likely to let you down and leave you stranded somewhere. That’s why you should always go with genuine Yamaha marine parts. It’s never a mistake to go for the kind of brand-name quality that Yamaha parts offer.

    Green River Lake in Campbellsville also had damage from roofs collapsing. I hope those folks were paid up with their insurance! There were probably hundreds of boats that suffered significant damage from this, and I have to wonder if the affected marinas will have the damage repaired in time for the summer. This will run well into the millions of dollars when all is added up.

    Being a boat owner myself, I feel their pain. Goes to show once again that the boat itself can be the cheap part of boat ownership. Wait until you add up the gas, insurance, and maintenance!

    yeah, I was expecting some roof damage from all that snow, but didn’t see this one coming. This is the kind of stuff that put businesses under. Hope the Marina has good insurance, even that might not save them when the insurance rates go up because of this.

    Male Order was an incredible boat. A shame that someone didn’t get one of the gas powered/high volume pumps to it when they saw that it was supporting the majority the collapsed roof weight.
