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.

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.
