Recommended Regular Care As Part of Your Boat Maintenance Plan

The regular care of your boat can go a long way towards maintaining it and keeping it running well. Here are some basic tips that we always recommend to boat owners.

Flushing the engines

If you’re operating in salt water, whether your boat is brand new or 20 years old, we always recommend flushing the engines after every use. For most boats, especially the newer ones, flushing the engines to remove the salt water is quite easy and takes just a few minutes. This basic step is crucial for caring for your boat.

Washing and spraying down your boat

Again, getting the salt water out of every part of the boat is crucial. While spraying down the boat is impactful, it isn’t always completely sufficient. Getting out the soap and brush can ensure you get all the salt off the boat. Don’t ignore the small areas like screw heads and areas prone to less attention such as the underside of the hard top. Don’t be afraid to clean the boat. Remember, it’s waterproof!

Book service

Getting your boat detailed on a regular basis

If you’re using the boat regularly, we recommend having someone detail your boat on a regular basis. While it certainly costs money, it’s often negligible compared to the overall investment in the boat itself. Having the boat detailed every couple months during regular use is a way to give the boat better care and attention above and beyond the normal washing you might do after a day on the water.

Book service

Buffing and waxing the hull of your boat at least once a year

While the gel coat on today’s boats holds up extremely well, buffing and waxing the hull will keep it shining and looking new. If you have a darker hull color, you’ll want to consider this more frequently such as twice per year. At a minimum, when you have the boat hauled out for its annual service, get the boat detailed and have the hull buffed and waxed.

Typical Boat Maintenance & Service Schedule

In addition to the regular care for your boat, you’ll want to stay on top of scheduling service for your boat. Boat owners will typically get their boat serviced every 100 hours of use or once a year.  Here are common service elements performed at various points in the lifespan of the boat (note that things may differ depending on the specifics of your boat )

100 Hour Service

The 100 hour service typically involves an oil change and an inspection of the spark plugs and engine.

Book service

300 Hour Service

In addition to the regular 100 hour service items, the 300 hour service often includes examining and/or replacing items such as fuel pumps, thermostats, water pumps, filters and impellers.

Book service

500 Hour Service

While also including the standard service items, the 500 hour service often involves a number of items specific to your engine. This can include replacing specific parts around the engine as advised by the manufacturer.

Book service

Diagnostic checks

We can carry out a diagnostic check of your outboard motor or any other part of your boat and report back to you if we think something needs some attention

Navigating the Repairs Process

If you own and use a boat long enough, you’ll likely encounter something breaking or going wrong. Whether it is something simple such a slight tear in the vinyl or something that prevents the operation of the boat such as engine malfunction, the process can be frustrating for owners. However, by keeping a few key things in mind, owners can navigate the repairs process in a smooth manner. Here are a few tips to keep in mind to help minimize frustration and get you back out on the water in your boat quickly:

PLEASE NOTE:

By following these regular boat maintenance and repairs process guidelines, any boat owner can more fully enjoy the ownership and operation of their boat. While you do your best to reduce downtime and keep your boat running well, you’re also maintaining the value of your boat and will be rewarded when you decide its time to sell.Do you have any questions about boat maintenance or service? Please contact us at any time.

STEP 1
As soon a you detect a problem

Try to ascertain what the problem is and take a photograph if possible. If it’s an engine code, a rip in the vinyl or a weird noise you’re hearing, this documented evidence of the issue is huge in jumpstarting the repairs process. Some issues can be fickle and difficult to replicate when a service person or technician is present examining the boat. The photo or video evidence can speed up the first step of diagnosis and move the process along quicker. It’s not unheard of for technicians to have to spend a lot of time simply attempting to diagnose the problem before even knowing what the solution is. Remember, often times, parts have to be ordered, so getting quickly to the part ordering process can help reduce overall downtime.

Step 2
Keep in mind that boat servicing is very different from automotive servicing.

While automotive shops are built for high volume with a myriad of parts on hand, the marine servicing world operates much differently. While you can show up with your car unannounced at an automotive servicing shop, and in many cases, leave the same day with the repair done, this isn’t how it works in the marine world. Boats have many parts that typically have to be ordered. Setting your expectations appropriately will help eliminate frustration.

Book service

Step 3
Initial contact to us

While setting your expectations appropriately is key,when you first contact us we would appreciate as much detail about the problem in your service request. The request also lets you include photos and videos. This is the quickest way to get your service request moving forward. After submitting the request, the TGYG service team will provide you with next steps as soon as possible.

Book service

Minor repairs and problems

It would to your advantage if you would consider having minor problems and repairs sorted when your boat comes in for its servicing.If you’ve operated boats for some time, you know that on occasion there can be minor things not working properly, but not preventing you from using and enjoying the boat. Perhaps a small interior light hasn’t been working. Rather than bringing in the boat for these small items, consider waiting until you bring in the boat for your annual service appointment and have the shop fix these minor items at the same time.
