Spring is only a month away! Although for local Triangle residents, it certainly feels as if it may have come a bit early this year. However, while our lakes and rivers continue to warm up, there are a few things that can be done ahead of time to ensure that the new season starts off right, leaving plenty of time for water activities.
Our staff here at Motor Boatin is eager to get back into the water! Three things they’re doing to prepare to enjoy the upcoming spring season are:
- Trip Preparations. Lots of popular vacation spots allow us to make reservations early, and those who are proactive in planning trips ahead of time will get the best deals. For families that already own a boat, planning a trip early ensures that there will be a spot in the harbor or marina to keep it stored during the trip. Also, it’s just awesome to have something to look forward to during the last few weeks of winter!
- Stocking the Essentials. Before the prices raise when the season arrives, go ahead and stock up on small items like sunscreen, sunglasses, extra (or new) towels, water toys, etc. This goes along with planning a family trip early, you can take inventory of what’s needed and acquire those supplies in a timely manner as opposed to scrambling at the last second to get everything together.
- Boat Maintenance. This is the part we’re most excited about! We’ve been checking oils and lubricants, making sure safety equipment is up-to-date and well-stocked, as well as looking at all internal parts to ensure they’re in working order. And, of course, we’re sprucing up the appearance of some of our favorite pontoons and jet skis to give them a fresh face for the new season on the water!
We hope that you’re as excited as we are for the upcoming season! Falls Lake will have lots to offer Triangle residents who are ready to get back out and splash around.
