2. Spruce It Up and Shield It

A clean boat is a happy boat. Make sure you clean the hull, get rid of any barnacles, and slap on some wax to fend off the scorching summer sun.


3. Give the Engine a Once-Over:

Get under the hood! Make sure to take a peek at the engine, fuel systems, and all the important mechanicals.


4. Safety Check:

You know what they say... Safety First! Throw in those life jackets, brush up on emergency plans, and know your local boating rules. If you need a refresher on the current rules and regulations CLICK HERE to view the official boating laws from Texas Parks and Wildlife.


5. Stock Up and Set Sail:

Don't forget the essentials. Sunscreen, first aid kits, food and water, plus anything you might need in an emergency.


Remember, a well-prepped boat means more fun and less stress on the water.
