The days are getting longer and the temperature is rising. Therefore, surely it is time to launch his ship.
The start-up of your boat is a fundamental step to prevent any unexpected inconvenience and also to take care of your boat. Even if you have carried out a very thorough preparation for winter storage, there is no reason to avoid checks at the beginning of the season. We share with you the 5 simple and effective steps to ensure serene voyages by sea.
The first step before getting into your boat is to check the engine levels. Despite the technical service that will have been carried out before winter, it is essential to ensure the correct levels of the engine.
The tightness of your boat is a point where you cannot play. In spring, after allowing it to winter quietly, it is highly recommended to check the tightness of your boat. Nautical professionals are used to carrying out this type of operation.
The third step is to check the safety elements: fire extinguishers, rockets, compact life jackets, first aid kit, etc. With the Privilege Pack, a technical service that we offer so that you can enjoy a clean and ready boat throughout the year (Click here for more information), we have developed a calendar system to keep up with the deadlines for the use of safety equipment. Still, when one of our technicians performs the reset, we always take a look at these items.
The engine start
It's time to start the engines. Noises, smells, smoke, traces of oil... are elements that will give clues about the general condition of the engine and its correct operation. The mechanic will also take the opportunity to take a tour of the engine room to carry out an in-depth visual check.
