Protect Your Boat in the Thaw

After weeks of snow a thaw is underway across Ireland today but melting snow will produce even more difficulties for boat owners.

For starters boats without an automatic bilge pump can end up flooded but even if fitted prolonged pump use can drain batteries.

It's very easy to make one of the five most common winterising mistakes. Check them HERE.

It's not too late to check on your boat and shake off that snow!

There's no doubting the growth of power-boating in Irish waters over the past decade and Afloat's online coverage is designed to keep pace of these exciting developments.

Check these pages for news and views on powerboating, motorboating, engines, Ribs and motor cruising.

If you have ideas for our pages we'd love to hear from you. Please email us at [email protected]
