The weather is starting to get warmer, so that means time to bring out the water toys. Before you go out sailing you need to check the basics on your boat to ensure a safe trip.

It's time to bring out the water toys. Before you go out sailing you need to check the basics on your boat to ensure a safe trip.

 Things to check

1.) The propeller

You want to make sure there is no physical damage to the propeller that could have resulted from rough dockings.

2.) Bilge Pump

Make sure your pump is working properly just in case of the rare event that your boat starts to take on water. This pump can save your life.

3.) The Shell of the boat
