How to Protect Your Boat from Zebra Mussels in Texas

Zebra mussels – a small muscle that is believed to have arrived in Texas from Asia in the 1980s – have quickly become an epidemic in Texas lakes.

These small creatures attach themselves to boats and trailers that are in an invested lake, and then hitch a ride to new locations to spread. One tiny mussel has the capability to produce up to 1 million larvae! As a foreign creature to Texas, they are destructive to the natural ecosystem, killing off aquatic life, wrecking havoc on our water supply, and even damaging your boat and trailer! Here a few ways Buxton Marine Lewisville recommends you can protect your boat and our Texas lakes from zebra mussels:

 

  1. Clean Everything

It may surprise you to know that if there is water trapped somewhere in your boat, the zebra mussels can live for days in it! This is why it’s imperative that everything gets cleaned after each and every trip to the lake: boat, gear, trailer, etc.

 

  1. Drain Everything

In addition to cleaning the boat thoroughly, it’s important that each place water is stored is properly drained. This includes the bait buckets, live wells, motor, and bilge. Be sure to drain everything before you ever leave the lake you are in as it’s Texas law.

 

  1. Dry Everything

It is recommended that your boat spend a week out of the water between lakes to ensure everything is fully dried out and no signs of zebra mussel life can remain active. Sometimes it’s just not possible to take that much time out of the water, in which case, use a pressure wash and hot, soapy water to get a thorough cleaning then dry to the best of your ability.

 

If you suspect zebra mussels have invested your boat or trailer and you don’t think you have removed them all, call Buxton Marine Lewisville and ask us about a high powered, high temperature pressure wash to completely cleanse your boat of zebra mussels and protect from future damage to your boat – and our Texas lakes. Lake Lewisville is known to have an epidemic of zebra mussels, so it’s imperative that you clean each and every time you visit the lake.

The Redesigned Classic: Super Air Nautique 210

Let’s talk about the classic beauty of the Super Air Nautique 210.

 

The long awaited redesign has arrived, and frankly, it’s better than ever! You’ll love the redesigned technology features and even new design features, all while staying true to what made the classic so great in the first place.

 

Technology Features

 

At the heart of the all new Super Air Nautique 210 is the helm command center. You’ll enjoy the Touchscreen LINC Panoray system, perfect for controlling every aspect of your boat and keeping tabs on the engine and the rider alike. Everything can be handled via the LINC Panoray system, so there is no need to go anywhere else or crane your neck backwards to see the rider. The helm command feature even allows for control buttons just above the throttle, leaving you with yet another simple way to access your LINC Panoray without taking your hands away from the throttle. The JL Audio system is also top of its class, providing crystal clear sound as you navigate the water. It’s everything you loved about the old model, but brought up to speed with the best technology available for 2018.

Design Features

 

The open wrap around lounge layout is perfect for social gatherings of any size. Enjoy visiting with family and friends alike on the beautifully appointed Super Air Nautique 210. The helm seat is also inviting, with plush swivel seating, making a day on the lake as comfortable as sitting in your recliner. You’ll find the interior is packed with storage and design features that make carting all your gear a breeze. And lastly, the  thing we probably love the most is that the 210 didn’t lose its traditional bow, with extra seating, cupholders, storage under the seats, and even a dedicated stereo zone.

New Skiing World Records Set Behind a Ski Nautique 200!

Want to waterski like the pros?!

 

Then the Ski Nautique 200 is the boat for you!

 

Buxton Marine – the best Nautique dealer in Texas – is excited to announce that no 1 – but 3 – new world records were recently set behind the Ski Nautique 200!

 

Nate Smith

Nate Smith was already the reining world record holder with 2.5 @ 43’ off, but he bested his own score this past May at the Swiss Pro Slalom Tournament with 3 @ 43’ off! When interviewed, Smith had this to say about his victory:

“Being able to practice behind the best boat in the world allows me to put up the best scores in the world. Nothing beats the Ski Nautique 200!”

Aliaksei Zharnasek

Trick skier Aliaksei Zharnasek also had a record setting day at the Swiss Pro Slalom Tournament. He put up a trick score of 12,610. Zharnasek is also a Nautique Team member and said that skiing behind the Ski Nautique 200 makes it easy since it’s simply the best. He has also won the World Championship 3 times.

 

Anna Gay

Another Nautique trick skier – Anna Gay – had a great day, setting the 3rd new world record of the day behind a Nautique boat. Her score was 10,880. She said being behind her Ski Nautique 200 made her feel at home, even when abroad. She’s been skiing since she was 4.

 

Probably equally as impressive, is that these were the 25th, 26th, and 27th ski records to be set behind a Ski Nautique 200, more records than any other boat!

Congratulations to these athletes on their accomplishments from Buxton Marine, the largest Nautique dealer in the world! If you want the best ski boat, then call Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas today and ask about the Ski Nautique 200. We sell boats all over Texas, the Southwest, and beyond.
