Keeping your Outboard maintained professionally will guarantee you will enjoy the entire season on the water. Outboards are put subject to harsh conditions and require very special maintenance to operate continuously without error. Running at 4800-5800RPM for extended durations of time, saltwater corrosion, and seasonal storage all put a strain on your outboard's lifespan if not maintained to factory specifications.
Keeping your Outboard maintained only takes a couple of hours each year and can save you thousands in unexpected repairs and priceless time lost on the water. The average boater uses their boat approximately 100 hours each season, which conveniently aligns itself with the majority of the manufacturer's maintenance intervals.
