It’s true that preventive maintenance may cost more in the short run, but will save you thousands of dollars, and wasted weekends during the life of your boat. Does a boat ever break down when you’re not using it? No, it breaks down on the weekend when you’re using it, often ruining your weekend. It’s always better to prevent a major problem by solving a minor one.
Water impellers, and batteries are a couple of examples of preventive maintenance. They should be changed every 2-years even if they don’t seem to be giving you problems now. A $200.00 water pump impeller could save you from spending $5000.00- 7500.00 for a new motor from overheating. Catastrophic damage can be done even if you have a warning system. A battery that’s about to go bad won’t always give you a warning either. It may start your boat, but fail later in the day after running the stereo for a few hours.
Most boat owners are in a break, and fix mode. Instead of spending a few dollars more to do preventive maintenance they just fix what’s broken at the time. There are many other examples of pre-maintenance that should be done. Contact your Holiday Harbor Service Department Mgr. to discuss options for your boat. There are specific items pertaining to outboard motors, inboard motors, jet pumps, and stern-drive/ inboard-outboard motors.
At the end of the day you can spend a little money now or spend a lot of money later ? We encourage you to call Holiday Harbor Sales & Service today if you have any questions .
