Boating Tips

Hose Guards- don't throw away that old hose. Cut a piece about a foot long, split it and put it around your dock lines and anchor lines where they pass through the chocks to prevent chaffing.

Kitty Litter Below - when you put your boat up for a period of time put a few boxes of Kitty litter below. It will absorb moisture, reduce mildew, and eliminate odors.

The Handy Coat Hanger -always have a metal coat hanger in your tool kit. It can be used to:

  • free hose blockages
  • hook something in an inaccessible area
  • used to replace a cotter pin
  • used as a temporary tie down
  • free blocked limber holes
