January

We are mid winter now with the end of January. In case you have not had a chance to visit your boat for a while, here are a few things you might check on.

  1. 1. Check the condition of your battery. It should be disconnected or on a maintenance charge. If it is not then this is the time to put a charger on it for a few days.
    2. check your cover. High winds may have caused some lines to loosen or chafed your tarp. There is lots of winter left.
  2. 3. Check your blocking. With a long warm fall your boat may have sunk into the ground. Now that the frost is in it might be a good time to jack your boat back to level. There are always a few that have to dig holes for jacks in the soggy spring.
