Spring Checklist: Engines & Fuel Systems

Pursuit Boats

Checking your engines and fuel systems is an important step in your spring maintenance.  Following these tips will help to ensure that your boat is ready for cruising.

  • Inspect fuel lines, including fill and vent hoses, for softness, brittleness or cracking
  • Check all joints for leaks and make sure all lines are well supported with non-combustible clips or straps with smooth edges
  • Inspect cooling hoses and fittings for stiffness, rot, leaks and/or cracking.  Make sure they fit snugly and are double-clamped
  • Every few years, remove and inspect exhaust manifold for corrosion
  • Clean and tighten electrical connections, especially both ends of battery cables.  Wire-brush battery terminals and fill cells with distilled water
  • Inspect bilge blower hose for leaks

Please consult your boat’s operating manual before conducting any suggested actions.
