Written by MarineMaxx Canada Wednesday, September 29, 2021


With the end of summer, many boaters start getting their boats ready for the cold winter months. But with the beautiful weather we've had lately, there's still time to get out and enjoy the water a few more times. However, there's a few things you should keep in mind before heading out on the water in Autumn. Here's some good advice to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable time on the water this fall.

Fuel up. When summer ends, some fuel docks will close for the fall. Fill up ahead of time to avoid disappointment when you reach your destination.

Dress appropriately. Though autumn days may still be warm, the temperature can drop quickly as the sun sets. Dress in layers so you are prepared for all temperatures. Also pack rain gear in case of inclement weather.

Wear a PFD. You should always wear a PFD when on a boat. It's even more important during the fall. The day may be warm, but nights get cold. That means the water will be colder and a PFD can help protect you...

5 Great Tips for Preventing Mold and Mildew on Your Boat

Written by MarineMaxx Canada Monday, September 20, 2021

As a boat owner, you know that mold and mildew can be a big problem. Boats have many enclosed spaces, where moisture and condensation can build up. Keeping things damp and warm is a perfect breeding ground for mold mildew. And once it starts, it becomes very difficult to get rid of. Worst of all, there's a high chance your boat insurance won't cover damage due to molds and mildew!

So what can you do to reduce the risk of having mold and mildew? These 5 tips are a perfect way to prevent mold and mildew from forming on your boat.

Inspect and repair any cracks and leaks

One of the easiest ways to prevent mold is to stop water from getting into places it shouldn't. Inspect your boat thoroughly for any cracks and leaks. Look for any sealant that is coming loose or peeling. Places to look include hatches, ports, vents, cleats, etc. If it appears water is getting through at any of these places, repairs may be needed.

To be safe,...
