Spring Boat Service at Riverside Marine
Serving Vancouver WA and Portland OR
Dewinterize Boat for Spring & Summer
With spring upon us it’s time to de-winterize your boat and get it ready for another season in the water. Why is spring boat service and maintenance so important? A small amount of energy spent on servicing your boat will ensure long term savings and extend the life of your boat.
Spring servicing your boat will prevent wear on the engine and stern drive by inspecting, cleaning, lubricating and repairing necessary parts.
Boat Oil Change
Performing regular oil and filter changes can greatly extend the engine life of your boat. The oil in the engine not only lubricates moving parts and keeps it cool, but it also removes particles of dirt sending them through a filter where the grime is collected. The grit in dirty oil can wear precision surfaces and the acids in contaminated oil dissolve internal engine parts.
Changing your boat’s oil can be a messy, complicated project. Here at Riverside Marine Services, we have specialized technicians who are experts when it comes to changing your boat’s oil and getting you one step closer to being back on the water.[modal_block]
Boat Engine Tune Ups
Not only does a properly tuned engine enable your boat to perform at its best but it also saves you money in the long run. A properly tuned engine is better for fuel economy and the environment, with fewer emissions entering in the air and water.
Riverside Marine has skilled technicians to perform the tune up your boat needs. Whether your boat sports an inboard or outboard motor, technicians will thoroughly inspect and perform maintenance to insure you have a smooth ride for the upcoming boating season.
Stern drive Service
When getting your boat water ready, don’t forget maintenance on the stern drive. Hoses, oil lines and rubber bellows all live in the water, where they can be damaged and exposed to corrosion. Because of this, along with regular use and wear, it is important to have the stern drive thoroughly serviced by an experienced technician.
