Owning a boat comes with lots of benefits. However, it does not mean you’ll be spending all your time on the water without a care. It also comes with a big responsibility to yourself and your passengers, particularly when it comes to maintaining your boat. When you spot a small problem and resolve it before it gets worse you can save on time, costs, and prevent the stress of being stranded on the water in the event of a breakdown.

Bring your boat for repairs to Countryside Powersports if you spot any of the following:

-Vibrations. A common sign that a boat needs professional service from a trained boat mechanic is if you can feel vibrations coming off of your vessel. Vibrations indicate that something is out of correct alignment, or some damage has occurred to the propeller or to the strut under the boat if it has an inboard engine. If those components are misaligned it can cause vibrations.

-Hull damage. Deteriorating stringers, bulkheads or deck cores typically need repairs from a professional boat mechanic. Minor chips or dings can possibly be resolved as a DIY project, but if it involves replacing hull fittings, fixing areas of fiberglass damage or structural repairs, you should take your boat to Countryside Powersports for a service estimate.

-Problems with steering. Whether you’re feeling more resistance when you steer or your steering wheel will not turn, it’s an issue you’ll need to address right away.
Sometimes, the solution is as basic as adding some more hydraulic fluid. But if the boat doesn’t steer , it could be due to a mechanical failure or corroded steering cables. Regardless of the cause, if your boat has problems steering bring it to our facility for professional repair services.
