Winter Boating with Nautique – Buxton Marine

We live in Texas, which means that even though it’s the holiday season, the temperatures can still be in the upper 80s! Not to mention, we haven’t really had any cold snaps to cool off the water. All of these things are good for boaters in the state of Texas, who want to extend their boating season even longer. Get the most out of your Nautique boat this fall and winter with these winter boating tips:

 

  1. Use the Seat Heaters

Here’s a fun fact about the 2017 Super Nautique: it’s got seat heaters! Ever feel the chill after a long ride on the water and need to warm up – especially if the weather is cooler or overcast? The Super Air Nautique comes equipped with heated helm and loveseat seating – all with the push of a button. It’s pretty nifty, and once you have it, you’ll never go back!

  1. Consider a Wet Suit

A wet suit is a must if you are going to get in the water when it’s cooler outside. A wet suit will help insulate your body and take the chill off, allowing you more comfort as you use your Texas wakeboard boat.

 

  1. Use Navigation Lighting

As the days grow shorter, the sunset can sneak up on you. Assess your navigation lighting and make sure it is working properly. When visibility is limited, it is important to use this lighting so that other boats can see you on the lake.

 

  1. Watch the Weather

Winter storms can sneak up on us in Texas! Make sure you watch the weather before boating in Texas to make sure you are not surprised or caught off guard while on the lake.

 

Buxton Marine is your Dallas Nautique dealer, and we would love to show you around the showroom! Imagine yourself in a beautiful new Super Air Nautique, just in time for Christmas and winter boating! And bonus – it looks beautiful with a big red bow on top! 🙂

 

Good times ahead!

Buyer’s Guide: What you Need to Know about Compression Tests – Buxton Marine

The summer boating season may be over, but that won’t stop you from checking out all the great new and pre-owned boat deals at Buxton Marine! Buxton Marine always stocks a huge selection of Nautique, but you will also find awesome pre-owned models from MasterCraft, Malibu, and more as well.

 

When boat buyers come into Buxton Marine, they frequently ask us about a compression test before purchasing a pre-owned boat, so we wanted to offer you a little insight into what a compression test can and cannot do for you.

compression-test-boat-lewisville

What is a Compression Test?

A compression test is used to gauge a boat’s engine health. The test shows how well an engine can compress fuel and air in the engine cylinder. While this test is helpful to determine how well a boat will run in the future, it is not the end-all-be-all for diagnosing a boat engine’s health.

 

What a Compression Test Cannot Do

The primary function of a compression test is to help determine why an engine is not performing well, and not so much what it can do in the future. It’s like using blood pressure as the sole indicator on whether or not you are healthy. It’s helpful – but doesn’t paint a complete picture for someone looking to buy a pre-owned boat in Texas.

 

Compression Test vs. Water Trial

The best way to get an accurate feel for the boat’s performance is to take it out on the water. Pay close attention to the idle, acceleration speed, shifting abilities, and wide open throttle (WOT) for extended periods of time. Check all the bell and whistles. Buxton Marine does not recommend buying a used boat unless you have undergone a full water trial, along with performing a compression test, spark check, and full inspection.

3 Steps to Winterizing Your Boat – Buxton Marine Lewisville

It’s almost that time again. As the temperature cools down and the days get shorter, boat owners across Texas begin to winterize their ski boats.

Why Winterize?

No matter what type of boat you have – wakeboard boat, ski boat, fishing boat, etc. – winterizing is key to maintaining your boat for the long haul. Properly winterizing your boat will not only extend the life of your valuable asset, but it will also save you time and money when boating season kicks off again in 2017.

 

How Do I Winterize My Boat?

 

Step 1: Properly Store Your Boat

The best way to store your boat is to remove it from the water and have it stored in a climate controlled boat storage facility. Buxton Marine understands that this option may not work for everyone, so you can also choose to have your boat shrink-wrapped, cover it tightly with a tarp or cover, and park in a covered area if at all possible.

 

Step 2: Perform Checklist to Winterize

Each boat manufacturer – whether Nautique, MasterCraft, Tige, Supra, Malibu, etc. – has a checklist for winterizing in their owner’s manual. Be sure to consult that list first and foremost. No time for that? We highly recommend that you bring your boat into a reputable boat service department like Buxton Marine. Buxton Marine is one of the best boat service shops in North Texas. Each and every one of our service technicians as undergone extensive training with Nautique, ensuring they are experts in their craft. Winterizing with Buxton Marine is a no brainer.

 

Step 3: Air Everything Out Before Storing

Winterizing is a great chance to clean out the boat, evaluate what needs to be replaced for the Spring, air out cushions, etc. Properly airing out and cleaning out the boat will make all the difference when Texas boating season is in full swing again.

4 Tips for Wakesurfing Beginners – Buxton Marine

As school starts and fall schedules begin to ramp up, Lake Lewisville becomes a boaters paradise because fewer boaters are on the lake! And in Texas, the water is still plenty warm in September, giving you the perfect opportunity to try some new skills – like wakesurfing.

 

If you’ve considered wakesurfing but never given it a try, Buxton Marine has you covered with these 4 tips for the beginner wakesurfer:

 

  • Buy the Right Board: One size does not fit all when it comes to wakesurf boards. As a general rule of thumb, the larger the rider, the bigger the board you will need. Also, larger boards cover more surface area of the water, making them easier for beginners. Buxton Marine has a full range of wakesurf boards in stock and our staff is happy to help you select the perfect board to get you started!
  • Weight the Boat Correctly: If you want to get up – and stay up – once you let go of the rope, then properly weighting your boat is a must. In order to produce a nice, big wake, your Texas ski boat will need about 1,800 lbs. of extra weight added to the eight already in the stock ballast. 75% of the weight should be weighted to one side of the back to middle-back of the boat; 25% in the front.
  • Know the Brake and Pedal: Think of your front foot at the “gas pedal” and the back foot as the “brake.” Start with your front foot in the middle of the pad on the front of the board and your back foot up against the board’s kick tail. When you feel yourself getting away from the boat, press your front foot “gas pedal,” and you will get closer to the boat. The opposite is true of your braking foot.
  • Find the Sweet Spot: Typically speaking, the sweet spot to riding the wake without a rope is down at the trough of the wake, about 5 feet away from the boat.
