Customizing your boat

by owner

Category: Our Blog

It certainly is a thrill when you finally get your used boat for going fishing in Florida waters. You probably have all kinds of neat ideas for upgrades and customization. There is nothing like adding a little personal touch to your boat to give it a bit of style. Naming your boat is probably one of the first things to tackle to make it your own. Consider these suggestions for adding accessories and
modifications for comfort to make your boating experience more enjoyable. Remember to contact your insurance agent for boat insurance coverage before you take your new craft out on the water. It’s important to make sure you have the right levels of coverage for your boat, especially if you have made a number of upgrades, or bought more expensive equipment.

  • Visit online websites and boating stores
    for tons of cool boating accessories. You might check out fender holders,
    new rods, and fishing rod holders and bait buckets to get started.
  • Make sure there are ample life preservers
    and life jackets on board to cover all passengers for weekly fishing
    trips.
  • Spending a little extra on electronics
    for your boat sure can make trips much smoother and may prevent problems.
    Consider things like fish finders, radar, GPS and chart plotters to fit
    out your boat in style.
  • Carpeting in used boats can get grungy.
    Consider replacing old carpeting with newer Berber carpeting, which wears
    well.
  • Older boats are going to need new canvas
    after they are about five years of age. When replacing old canvas consider
    a few upgrades like the addition of zipper windows and screening.
  • Carefully examine interior finishes to
    determine if cushions, bedding, paneling and appliances require repairs or
    replacement.
