Happy Holiday Season and Happy New Years to all of the Bay Area and the California boating community. We wish everyone a wonderful 2018 boating season, which for us in the SF Bay Area, is just around the corner. In this article we wanted to talk a little bit about some of the winter services your boat will need to be ready for the water when the weather warms up!

Seashine offers complete boat maintenance packages to make sure your boat is safe during the rainy winter months and clean, dry and ready for your next boat trip on the Bay and beyond. Our team of experts can inspect your bilge for unnoticed water and test your pump to make sure it is functioning if ever needed. A dry boat can make all the difference for the months you are away! We also test interior and exterior lights, head operation, and any interior and exterior hardware work.

Another popular winter service we offer is engine and engine compartment, batteries, and cooling system testing. The last thing you want when you visit your boat after weeks or months away is a dead battery! Maybe the bilge pump was running constantly due to an unknown leak or you left lights on and now your friends and family are standing on the dock waiting to board while you try to start your boat! We will run your motor and check for any leaks and make sure it is running perfectly as we check the engine compartment area for leaks. We can also test and check battery power, your cooling system hoses, thermostat and heat exchanger and make sure all systems are in place and working great over these cold and wet couple months.

These are key components to taking the worry and guess work the next time you want to head out for a fun afternoon or voyage. Be sure to take advantage of our 10% off special for all of cleaning and maintenance services this winter.
