For most people, their boat is their pride and joy, but that doesn’t mean they always understand when things are going wrong. If your boat performance hasn’t been optimal lately, it might be time to consider a repair or refit. Here are some signs you should get it checked out:
Problems with steering
If you can’t quite get your boat to go in the direction you want it to, you may have a problem with your hydraulic fluid. You can try topping it up, but it may also indicate a leak. When the steering wheel is completely stuck in place, you’re more likely to have a mechanical problem on your hands.
Overheated engines can result in your boat cutting out until it cools down, making journeys take a lot longer. This could be caused by breaks in one of your houses or corrosion and blogging. It may also be a sign that you need to replace your engine completely.
Loss of power or sputtering
If your boat loses power, that’s a serious indicator to anyone that something is wrong. It’s important to repair your boat at the first sign of sputtering, as you wouldn’t want to lose power out on a body of water. If you’ve already ruled out running out of fuel, then it could be that you need new filters or a spark plug.
