The following are general guidelines.

FUEL SYSTEM
• Inspect hoses, connections and tank surfaces for leaks or damage
• Replace components as needed
• Verify all fittings and clamps are properly secured
• Ensure the engine, exhaust, and ventilation systems are functioning properly

BELTS, CABLES & HOSES
• Check for cracks and brittle areas
• Ensure belts fit tightly and are not worn
• Inspect the outer jacket of control cables for cracks or swells, which may indicate a problem

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
• Inspect all electrical connections for cleanliness and tightness - corrosion may indicate an unsafe condition
• Remove terminals and clean with a wire bush
• clean cable ends
• Change battery and ensure it can hold a charge
• Electrical systems should be inspected by a qualified technician regularly

FLUID LEVELS
• Check engine oil, power steering, power trim reservoirs and coolant levels
• Change engine oil, oil filter and drive lubricants if these tasks were not done prior to winterizing

PROPELLERS & HULLS
• Inspect propellers for dings, pitting, cracks and distortion
• Make sure propeller is secured properly - replace bearings if needed
• Check hull for blisters, distortions and cracks
• Clean the hull, deck and topsides
• Ensure the drain plug is securely in place prior to every launch

SAFETY GEAR
• Inspect life jackets to ensure they are in good condition; make sure there is one for each potential passenger
• Check that fire extinguishers are fully charged, properly stowed and are the correct class for your vessel
