Boating Resolutions for the New Year

Make More Time to Ride Your Boat

One of the most common regrets boat owners have is that they wish they had more time out on the water. And it's understandable. As stated above, life gets in the way and sometimes, it doesn't let you take full advantage of your boat. However, this can be the year in which you change that. Make plans to go out on your boat and keep them. In fact, you should set dates on your calendar and don't move them for any reason (lest you're sick or the weather is bad).

Steer Clear of the Routine

Boating, as fun and as thrilling as it can be, can also become boring and unexciting if you keep a routine that you never steer clear of. If you always go to the same spots, with the same people, and do the same things, there may come a point in which you won't feel inspired to navigate anymore. That's why you should make it a point to get out of your comfort zone during the new year. For example, go out to explore new waters (just make sure that it's a safe place, that you know where you're going, as well as how you'll get there and back).

Make the new year's resolution to maintain your boat in top shape. Call Jim Ackney at (780) 476-0545, or visit AMSOIL's online shop to find the highest-quality products for its maintenance.

Always Put Safety First

Sometimes, you'll get wrapped up in the excitement of the ride, and you may forget that safety should always be your priority when you're out on the water. That's why, no matter how much you want to speed, do stunts, and engage in reckless boating practices, you should avoid them. To have safer, smoother, and more enjoyable rides during the new year, abide by the law, use your common sense, and simply avoid careless or unsafe behavior on your boat.

Keep Up with Its Maintenance Perfectly

Another key resolution to keep if you want to have safer, smoother, and more enjoyable rides, is to keep up with your boat's maintennce perfectly. To that end, you have to perform a quick inspection on your boat before each ride to guarantee it all works perfectly. As you ride, pay full attention to how it performs, so you can notice and repair issues early on. Moreover, it's imperative that you have a mechanic look at your boat every so often, so they can provide the maintenance it needs to continue working as expected for longer.

Caring for the engine is one of the best ways to keep your boat strong and healthy for longer. To that end, use AMSOIL 10W-30 Synthetic Marine Engine Oil, the top-performing synthetic oil in Edmonton for all of the synthetic oil changes.

Be a More Prepared Boat Owner

Finally, make sure that you're ready for anything that may come your way while you're out on the water during the new year (be it a nautral occurrence, an accident, or another issue). To that end, you should have a complete emergency kit on your boat (filled with life jackets, flares, communication devices, a fire extinguisher, a fully-equipped first-aid kit, water, blankets, life rings, mechanical tools, among others items). It's also highly suggested that you learn to perform CPR and other first-aid techniques, in case it's ever needed.

If you want to enjoy your boat for a lot more time, keep the resolution to maintain it perfectly. Call Jim Ackney at (780) 476-0545, or visit AMSOIL's online shop to place an order on the most effective products for it, including the best synthetic oil in Edmonton.
