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:
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
