"A bad day of boating is better than a good day at work.”
It makes for a fun bumper sticker, but if you were adrift 12 miles from the ramp with a boatload of cranky passengers and an engine that won’t start, you might almost start to wish you were at work! At that point, a slogan won’t help you as much as will the reassurance before you push off from the dock that your engine is in top-notch shape.
Experts recommend regular engine maintenance every 12 months or 100 hours of use – whichever comes first. Keeping up with routine engine checks will not only help prevent the above scenario, but future and more costly repairs.
