It’s Not Too Early to Plan for Summer 2022

January 2022 News

It’s been a long year, and the wait until summer can seem even longer when there’s snow and ice on the ground. However, it’s a great time to prepare for the next boating season—nothing makes the time pass faster than getting things done, after all. Make sure you do these three things before the weather starts warming up so you can get back on the water as soon as possible next season.

Schedule Maintenance

Now is a great time to get all of the boring but important stuff out of the way before summer gets here. If you didn’t get your system repaired in the fall when you put it away or otherwise winterized it, now is the time to get that done. Business for boat dock dealers and maintenance companies starts picking up once the weather warms up, so try to get on their calendar before anyone else does to make sure that you get plenty of time this boating season. You should be getting your dock inspected by a professional at least once every three years anyway. If you remove your dock and accessories every fall, it’s worth it to personally inspect them to ensure that they’re in good working order before you start seriously boating again.

Get in Touch with Your Dealer

If you’ve found anything that needs repairing or replacing in your inspections that you can’t safely DIY, now’s the time to put in some orders. You don’t want to be put on a waiting list for new parts when you want to get on the water safely. This also goes for those of you who are upgrading to a new dock system or expanding your current one—your plans might get derailed if you wait too long to start shopping. Dealers tend to sell out of their stock quickly as boating season gets closer, so don’t procrastinate and miss out on what you need.

Buy Accessories Your Family Will Love

Docks aren’t just a place to put your boat anymore. They’ve become outdoor entertainment areas and extensions of the home with various accessories to suit whatever you and your family like to do on the water. Many accessories, like those available from ShoreMaster, can even go directly on your dock. Whether you do water sports beyond boating, enjoy grilled fish on the water’s edge, a bonfire at the end of the day, or even sitting on a bench by the water with nothing but the sounds of nature and a cup of coffee to keep you company, you can find the right accessories to make your summer space perfect.

Just like when you’re winterizing your boat, dock, lift, and accessories, you can also count on your dealer to help you get things rolling in time for summer. Your local dealer will know the best ways to help you with your shoreline and is happy to help with every stage of the process from buying your system and parts to helping you with the installation. Make sure to get all the help you need to set up properly for summer 2022!
