My routine is pretty extensive. Flush motors with salt away for 5 min each. Rinse boat, wash boat with soap, rinse again. Cockpit cover, the full boat cover down to the trailer and over the radar arch. It is a 3-4 hour process from the time I get back on the trailer.Step up your maintenance schedule and plan on spending more. But agreed, the ocean is awesome for boating!
Batteries exploded due to heat, transom wood dried out causing fittings to be loose and leak water (took 2 days to figure this one out), headliner glue melting and causing a sag. Too dry and hot in those things.Don't worry, you will be back You can never quench the lake thirst.
I live in Long Beach, did the 30' cruiser in the slip for two years. Got tired of all the expenses. I mean , just one bill after another. And I work on my own stuff. So this was diver, slip fees, zincs etc. etc.
Curious though how does the Havasu storage units mess up the boats? I have had boats on and off at the lake for almost a decade. Never noticed an issue except for the dust blowing into the unit sometimes?Very light.
Enjoy the ocean, its an awesome:thumbup: boating experience!
