As we go from yard to yard, we see sailors, power boaters, and anglers all enjoying this wonderful early-Autumn weather. Thoughts of end-of-season decommissioning are definitely being tabled; replaced by decisions about proper SPF level and sunset sail locations.
However, we will soon see preparations being made for boat removal and seasonal decommissioning. This time of year is also great for taking stock of your boat’s electronics system and making notes on possible maintenance and upgrades which might enhance the enjoyment and utility you get from your vessel. If this is of interest, there are a couple articles which we thought we’d share.
First, for you sailors, having your mast down for the winter is an excellent time to think about upgrades and improvements which might be difficult to make when the boat is in the water and someone would have to go aloft. Check out this piece from Sail Magazine.
For power boaters looking to enhance their current electronics systems with functionality and features found in newer components rolled out earlier this year, this article from Boating Magazine discusses integrating new technology into older systems.
We can help with either of these efforts. And, if you choose to do the work in the offseason, make sure you ask about our off-season rates. To learn more, check out our Marine Electronics page.
Thank you. And enjoy the rest of the late season.
