The theme for Maritime NZ's Safer Boating Week 2016 continues to be “Prep, Check, Know”. That is, prep your boat, check your gear, and know the rules before you go boating.
Prep your boat
There's no better time to prepare your boat than when you're still on land!
- Service the engine
- Check and change the fuel
- Check the battery
- Generally give the boat a good onceover.
