SUMMER SEASON IS ENDING
Every year, I have the question asked whether or not they should perform yearly maintenance such as oil changes, water pumps, fuel filters, etc. on their engines in the fall or in the spring.
Most manufacturers, and industry professionals, will recommend that the fall is the best time for all your boat’s maintenance needs.
A couple of the main reasons are:
· The boat will be ready for the spring with only minor tasks left to do on the boat
· While performing the maintenance, if you do identify an issue, you have all winter to address the issue.
· If you have water in the oil, lower unit gear lube or other various parts on your boat, you have a better chance of finding it and make sure that you do not have any freezing issues over the winter
