Getting yout boat ready for summer
In order for your dinghy to last as long as possible, it is necessary to adhere to the basic rules for maintenance – both tubes, fiberglass – and all vital parts that are extremely important for safe navigation.
In order to prevent damage from unprofessional handling, we offer you the entire preparation of your dinghy for the summer.
Already with the first rays of the sun, they start thinking about how to prepare their dinghy. In order to avoid longer service times and works during summer crowds, bring us your dinghy on time so that it can be well prepared for your voyage.
So that spring and summer pleasures at sea do not turn into unwanted breakdowns, and thus spoil your vacation in the sun, listen to a few simple tips:
We assume that you canned your dinghy at the end of the season and prepared it adequately for the winter, so that I would now have less work and headaches. As for the rubber part of the boat, every owner should visually inspect the complete tubes, because even behind the seemingly harmless damage, very big problems can be hidden. If you think you are not professional enough to do it yourself, we will meet you and do it for you.
As practice has taught us, most of the problems go from the underwater part of the tube where the material suffers the most effort. If you notice that the joint has started to peel off, the place should be repaired immediately so that the sea does not penetrate into the boat or, worse, the tube chamber ruptures. For your safety, we recommend that such sensitive repairs be carried out by an authorized rubber boat repair service; because on a do-it-yourself basis it is very likely that you will do even more damage.
The upper part of the tube is in most cases damaged by pulling the rope on the tube, an anchor or some sharp object. The damaged place where the canvas reinforcement can be seen needs to be repaired, because already with the first hot summer days, it is very likely that the dinghy will start to lose air at that place.
Inflatables are very sensitive and need exceptional attention and care in order to serve for years and have their original shine.
We very successfully remove fungi on the tubes caused by winter moisture. Also, we polish the tubes and apply UV protection to protect the tube from external influences.
Entrust us with your dinghy and enjoy the summer months without worries
