What do you guys do to your boats annually to ensure it stays running smoothly all year long?

Well, I took a TM in that was acting up, only for guys to tell me it checked out ok so I have a wiring issue so I removed both TM and starting batteries yesterday, had poor connections come to find out here and there, and I took them to get them tested.

I know batteries are always brought up. I have (2) wal mart everstart 29's that have 5/14 stickers on them checked out very close to new specs. The new one needed replacing and they ordered one it will be in today. So myself, I will be checking all connections. Did L/U job this summer. Trailer needs some love too.

I run Royal Purple in the lower unit and all I do is check for water and fill to proper level. I grease all the grease fittings on the outboard, and check for dauber nests in the cowling vents. Pull prop at least twice a season and check for line. Put a little shaft grease on the splines.

I check the batteries monthly and keep maintainers on them after charging.

Check wheel bearings by simply touching the hubs after a trip to and from the lake. I keep the Bearing Buddies full but not overfull.

Check air pressure in the tires before every fishing trip, including the spare.
