Make it a Routine

Even if you might not be experiencing any concerning issues with your cover, it is recommended for there to be a maintenance checkup every two to three years. Why? Despite the lack of issues, salt deposits, pollen, and dirt must be removed from your cover periodically. We recommend making maintenance checkups part of your boat routine to prevent any issues that can reduce its lifespan.

Trust the Professional

ALWAYS trust professionals to perform your cover’s maintenance issues! Although you might perceive minor issues to be easy fixes, this is not always the case. Particularly, the four-step maintenance process involves taking the cover down, changing out the cords, pressure washing it and then re-installing. To avoid any technical errors, seek a trusted professional to perform these procedures. 

Better To Be Safe Than Sorry

Boat users sometimes feel that maintenance checkups are not necessary, however, it is recommended to avoid any bigger problems by performing checkups on a routine basis. Specifically, the boat cover might be affected by changing factors such as the location, saltiness of the water, foliage, pollen, airplane fly lanes, proximity to power plants, etc. Because of this, the cover’s bungee cords and are recommended to be checked to avoid issues that could result later on.
