Spring Boating Checklist: It’s Time to Start Thinking about Summer

The days are warming up here in North Texas, and those beautiful, sunny days may have you itching to get out on the water in your beautiful Nautique!

 

Now’s the time to begin the process of getting your boat ready for the lake life! Follow these tips on our Buxton Marine Spring Boating Checklist to ensure you’re ready for good times ahead as soon as the water warms!

 

  1. Get a Tune Up

Just like anything with a motor, boats need maintenance and TLC to continue running in their best condition. As part of your spring boating checklist, if you do nothing else, we encourage you to bring your boat into Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas for a service check. Our team of expertly trained technicians will give your boat a thorough once over and make sure everything mechanical is ready for the season ahead.

 

  1. Assess Life Jackets

Take an inventory of your life jackets and make sure you still have the right kinds to meet the needs of your passengers. Was there a new baby born this past year? Or a kid who has grown into a larger size life jacket? Make these life jacket adjustments before the season starts.

 

  1. Buy New Gear

Here’s the fun part! Wakeboards, tubes, and ropes – oh my! What do you need to have fun on the lake this summer? Visit the Buxton Marine Pro Shop to see the latest in gear to create a memorable summer for all.

  1. Develop Your Float Plan

A float plan tells someone who is not on the lake with you what your itinerary for the day is and when you plan to return to land. While you obviously can’t supply a float plan now for every day out on the lake, go ahead and fill in pertinent info that will never change to use as a template throughout the summer.

 

  1. Set Goals

Have each member of your family begin thinking now about what they’d like to accomplish on the lake this summer as part of your spring boating checklist. Does your son want to learn a new wakeboard trick? Are you interested in learning to wakesurf? Set goals now and then work toward those goals throughout the summer. It’s fun to see what you’ve achieved by summer’s end!

 

If you’re considering buying a new boat before the season begins, give us a call at Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas or Malakoff, Texas! Clients come to us from all over the country looking for the perfect ski boat, wakeboard boat, or wakesurf boat, and it’s because our honesty and integrity precedes us. Let us find you the perfect boat of your dreams – whether it’s a Nautique or something else!

Don’t Miss the Dallas Boat Expo: Feb. 2-4 and 8-11!

If you’ve even considered buying a boat this spring or summer, then do yourself a favor and visit Buxton Marine at the Dallas Boat Expo – Feb. 2-4 and Feb 8-11!

 

The Dallas Boat Expo is a great chance to see many of our top Nautique models up close and personal. You’ll have a chance to walk the boats, see the features, and talk with our knowledgeable sales staff. Here are a few questions we’d recommend asking as you walk around and visit with the various vendors at the Dallas Boat Show:

How is the Boat Constructed?

Nautique stands behind each of its boats and the quality craftsmanship that goes into each and every model built. Be sure to ask questions about the construction of the boat, with particular focus on the hull. Asking each manufacturer these same questions should help distinguish the best boats on the market.

 

How Does the Ballast Work?

Planning to do a lot of watersports with your brand new boat? Then be sure to ask about the ballasts. Nautique boats produce amazing waves with our factory ballast and nothing more, but other models require additional ballasts, special operating instructions, etc.

 

Which Watersports is the Boat Best For?

Before attending the Dallas Boat Expo, think about how you plan to use the boat. Wakesurfing? Wakeboarding? Tubing? Skiing? While we can’t speak for every manufacturer, we can say that Nautique puts lots of thought into each model, and each model is perfectly designed with different sporting needs in mind. Talk to our sales staff to understand which model would be right for you!

 

Where is the Storage?

While usually an after thought, storage in your new wakesurf, wakeboard, or ski boat is important! Think about what toys you’ll be on the lake with and where to store them. Look for roomy compartments and hidden storage that maximizes the space in the boat design.

 

These are just a few of the important questions to ask as you make the rounds at the Dallas Boat Expo! Be sure to come see us at our Buxton Marine booth. We are proud to be the best boat dealer in Dallas, Texas!

New for 2017: Nautique LINC Panoray Display

There is so much to love about the new 2017 Nautique line, and one such feature that has caught everyone’s eye is the Nautique LINC Panoray Display. Let’s take an in-depth look into all that this fancy new gadget can do to make boating in Texas oh so much more fun!

 

Huge Touchscreen Display

When you enter one of the 2017 Nautique models equipped with the Nautique LINC Panoray Display, it immediately catches your eye! That’s because the screen is a whopping 12.4” wide, perfect for viewing all your boat’s settings easily in one convenient location. The touchscreen is intuitive, making adjustments seamless.

Nautique Helm Command Controller

Nautique provides options when it comes to controlling the boat the way YOU want. When you’re driving the boat and your hand is on the throttle, it may be difficult to move your hand up to the touchscreen. That’s why Nautique has placed a Nautique Helm Command Controller directly to the right of the drivers seat, providing another easy access way to control everything within your LINC Panoray System.

 

Intuitive Display with Everything at your Fingertips

Every setting on your 2017 Nautique boat – from the ballast to the speed – can be controlled on your LINC Panoray. The speedometer is central on the screen – allowing you to make adjustments in seconds – and every other setting can be fine tuned for wakesurfing, wakeboarding, waterskiing, tubing, and so much more!

 

Save Individual User Profiles for Different Activities

The LINC Panoray System is able to store user profiles for all your different activities and riders behind your boat! Simply select the user setting you want to use and there are good times ahead with no guesswork involved!

 

Nautique Awareness Camera

Never take your eyes off the front of the boat with the use of the Nautique Awareness Camera, allowing you to see everything happening behind your boat within the LINC Panoray Touchscreen Display.

 

Ready to make 2017 the best year yet with a brand new 2017 Nautique boat?! Visit Buxton Marine – your Dallas Nautique dealer – to view our wide selection of 2017 boats equipped with the LINC Panoray System.

 

Good times ahead!
