Just bought a previously owned Sanger and was wondering if someone could point me to a boat maint. board or web site, any place with good FAQs? Seasonal maint, things to watch during the season/things to do, etc. Want to know what I can do vs what should be left to the boat shops.
Just winterized it with a recommended boat shop and am unclear as to the value I got for $110.00
in not so cold Northern Cal.
Thanks fo any help,
|use the search function on this site. if you can't find the answer that way just post anohter question.|
|This site is the best.....plus there are a few very knowledgeable sanger owners who will help you with anything that you need. Do a few searches, but don't be afraid to post a question. You'll learn everything you need to and more!|
I find that the winterizing thing in the bay area region is a little useless unless you are storing your boat outside where it is exposed to cold nights and sunny days. If I am not mistaken (and ww will correct me if I am wrong)you only winterize to protect from condensation build up. Most garages in the Delta/Bay Area do not get enough of a temp change to justify it in my opinon. In 18 years of owning and maintancing my boats I have never winterised and never had a problem. Congrats on the Sanger purchase, welecome to the family. Keep a look out in the future for the Sanger gathering.
|i am from northern california also although it is a lot colder where i am i guess. you also want to winterize/drain your block and manifolds to keep them from cracking. so if it freezes where your at then i would recommend it.|
|OR..just drop a light in the engine compartment and that will be enough so that it wont freeze, if you dont use it then you either fake a lake and/or put in some gas treatment so you dont get water built up, or just top it off! a good person who does house calls in lynn of mobile marine here in sac. congrats on joining the family.|
