Boating season is upon us. It is finally time to begin getting your boat ready for the Utah boating season. Dewinterizing your boat can seem like a daunting task, but it is essential to have the boat in tip-top shape to ensure a fun, and safe, boating season. At SugarHouse Boat Covers, we feel that there are necessary steps to get your boat ready for the water. In Utah, the boating season begins as early as spring so it’s important to start your boat start up as soon as possible.

Fuel System

Your boats fuel system needs to be inspected for damage or wear. Any hoses showing signs of softness, brittleness, or cracking need to be replaced. A malfunctioning fuel system is not only dangerous, but can also put a damper on the fun if you end up stranded in the middle of Utah Lake.

Propellers and Hulls

Inspect the boats propellers for dings and other damage that could cause unwanted vibrations or damage to the drive train. Make sure the hull is free of any distortions and cracks. Also be sure that the drain plug is secure before you launch your boat.

Safety Equipment and Gear

Check your life jackets to make sure they are not damaged or out of date. It is important for every passenger to have the correct size of life jacket for his or her body weight. It is also important to inspect any water skis, wakeboards, and tubes for damage.

 Boat Cover and Bimini

Having a boat cover will help to protect the boat interior from dust and debris. It will also keep all of your expensive gear and safety equipment inside the boat as you travel to the lake. A bimini will provide a shaded area for the passengers on your boat. Boat covers and bimini tops can be customized to your boat and any aftermarket tower or framework.

To have your boat ready for the summer boating season, contact SugarHouse Boat Covers for all of your boat cover and bimini needs.
