Do You Own a ZUP Board Yet?! – Buxton Marine

Looking for a new, fun way to get everyone on the boat involved in watersports on Lake Lewisville? Look no further than the ZUP Board!

Buxton Marine has sold a ton of ZUP Boards this summer because it doesn’t matter what type of boat you have – Nautique G Series or another wakeboard boat, ski boat, or pontoon– friends of all ages can enjoy this fun water toy. Here’s why we love it:

 

  • Ease of Use: ZUP Board is designed to guarantee everyone gets up and has a great time on the lake. Every detail is designed with ease of use in mind: built-in handles, non-skid EVA padding, multifunctional foot straps, and more. Oh – and let’s not forget how buoyant these boards are! ZUP Board incorporates hydrodynamics to create a board that is light and buoyant and cannot catch an edge easily.

 

  • Durable: Not only are the features of the ZUP Board ease to use, but they will withstand hours of lake time. Durable roto-molded construction is key to a board that can take it all.

 

  • Combines All of Our Favorites in One: We love to wakeboard, kneeboard, and ski – but what if you aren’t particularly proficient at any of those? ZUP Board makes it easy for just about anyone to get up doing any one of these activities! Not to mention – you can do them all in one ride! ZUP makes it easy to change from laying, to kneeboarding, to skiing easily while on the board.

 

  • Available for Multiple Skill Levels: ZUP Board comes in 2 varieties: Beginner to Intermediate and Intermediate to Advanced. Beginner to Intermediate is by far the most popular board to suit most skill levels.

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.

What is the Best Time to Buy a New or Used Boat? – Buxton Marine

So you have had your eye on a brand new boat at Buxton Marine all summer long, but now the summer boating season is winding down and you are trying to figure out if it is the right time to pull the trigger and buy the boat of your dreams.

 

It’s a common scenario. Speaking as your friend – and not just a boat dealer is Lewisville, Texas – we would argue that you are actually approaching the best time of year to buy a boat. The fall and winter seasons are the perfect time to snag a great deal on a new or pre-owned boat and here’s why:

 

  1. It Saves You Money: Here’s the biggest reason to buy a boat now! As with most things, when demand is the lowest – costs go down too in order to move inventory. At Buxton Marine, we’ve been known to slash prices in the fall and winter, saving you thousands and making room for next year’s inventory. Why pay more for the same boat in the spring when you can have it NOW!
  2. More Choices: At the end of the season, you will see fewer buyers – which means we have more inventory available for you to choose from. Plenty of brand new and pre-owned boats from Nautique, Mastercraft, Malibu, Correct Craft, and more.
  3. Better Value: Don’t stress about whether or not it’s the right time to buy. Not only is the savings in the bottom line dollar amount you pay, but there is value in peace of mind, excellent customer service, and in starting to pay off you loan sooner because you started earlier.

What You Need to Know about Zebra Mussels – Buxton Marine

Have you seen the billboards up and down I-35 near Lake Lewisville warning against zebra mussels?

 

At Buxton Marine – your #1 source for new and pre-owned boats in Lewisville, Texas, we’ve gotten quite a few questions from boaters about these tiny pests, so we wanted to give you the scoop on what they are, what to look for, and preventative measures you can take against them.

 

What are Zebra Mussels?

 

Zebra mussels are tiny mussels that are identified by their zebra striped shells. They only grow to 1.5 inches max, but can produce 1 million microscopic larvae per mussel. This means, you may not even see the larvae before it’s too late! Scientists believe they are originally from the Great Lakes area, migrating down to Texas over the last few years and wrecking havoc on Texas lakes like Lake Lewisville, causing damage to boats, lakes, and the surrounding environment.

zebra-mussels-lake-lewisville

Why are Zebra Mussels Considered Such a Nuisance?

 

  • Environmental Issues: Zebra mussels are not native to Texas, and their sheer existence in Texas lakes harms the natural ecosystem. Zebra mussels take food from other natural wildlife, destroy vital algae in the water, and in turn, reduce the amount of game fish in the water.
  • Boat and Dock Damage: Zebra mussels invade water intake systems and motors, cover boat hulls, and cause costly damage in the process. Anything left in the water is fair game for zebra mussel infestation.
  • Water Supply: Zebra mussels can affect the water supply of neighboring communities because they love to clog pipes within the infested waters

 

How do I Prevent Zebra Mussels?

 

Lake Lewisville is one of several lakes in Texas that is “positive” for zebra mussel infestation. A good rule of thumb to prevent the spread and growth is to properly clean, drain, and dry your ski boat, fishing boat, or other recreational boat after each use:

  • Clean: Use a pressure washer and warm, soapy water to rinse down your boat and trailer after each use.
  • Drain: Drain the all water intake systems before leaving the lake.
  • Dry: Allow your boat and trailer to fully dry for at least a week before entering another body of water.

5 Safe Boating Tips for New Boat Owners

Welcome to the world of boat ownership! You picked out a sweet ride and now you are ready for good times ahead while boating on Lake Lewisville, Lake Grapevine, and beyond. But are you familiar with boat safety?

 

Buxton Marine wants to help educate you with 5 safe boating tips in Texas to keep in mind as you set sail:

 

  1. Share Your “Float Plan”

 

What is a “float plan” you ask? It’s simply your estimated time on the lake, who’s with you, where you are going to be boating, etc. Sharing this information with someone else who will not be on the boat is important so that should you have mechanical failure or other mishaps, you know someone will know to come looking for you. Don’t forget to give them the boat type and registration information as well.

 

  1. Take a Boating Safety Course

 

In the State of Texas, a boating safety course is not required if you were born before 1993, but being familiar with common boating rules of operation is a must for any new boat owner. There are a plethora of resources available online including this free one from Boat US Foundation.

 

  1. Assign an Assistant Skipper

 

As a good rule of thumb, don’t go out on the lake unless you and at least one other member of your party are familiar with the boat’s operation procedures and can safety drive it. Assign this person as your “Assistant Skipper,” willing to step in and safety drive the boat should you become incapacitated in some way.

 

  1. Check the Weather

 

Know the weather before you depart out onto the boat and avoid the water should the weather skies look dark, high winds are picking up, or you experience sudden drops in temperature. Be prepared on board your vessel for all types of weather.

 

  1. Common Sense in Key

 

As with anything, common sense will get you a long way when operating your boat safely on the lake. Use safe boating speeds at all times, be mindful of buoys designated areas where boating is prohibited or you are to slow down, and being alert and focused at all ties are key to a safe – and fun! – day of boating.
