Welcome to your Newsletter 14th February 2018
Is your boat ready to be launched?
Spring is coming, and as you think about getting back on the water, a reminder to all that we quickly get booked up for launch's in Late March and April so would advise getting in contact with us for an available slot to avoid disappointment.
Don’t forget to check your battery’s are fully charged, they should be over 12v after a full charge anything less than this is a sign the battery possibly needs replaced or will need water if it’s a lead/acid type. We have had a couple of cold spells this winter so it maybe a good idea to check hoses, deck drains or water pipes below the waterline for frost damage, insecure joins or slack hose clips.

Message in a Bottle
Note the picture of the sea cock and stern tube, this is the correct way to fasten hose clips (jubilee clips), the clips should be opposite each other. This is especially important below the water line.
Sea cocks and valves are often forgotten about and it doesn't take long for them to seize up with lack of use, ensure regular movement throughout the year and some older style valves will require servicing.
