The first boat show is just weeks away … and although many of us feel like we’ve just gotten our boats back in the water, fall is just around the corner. This means it’s time to start scheduling upcoming projects with your boatyard – whether it’s an upgrade, new gear wants, or annual maintenance to keep your craft in shipshape condition.
The past year has affected our lives in many ways – and that includes our passion for boating.
Most likely, you’re getting ready to tackle the final action items to get your vessel back out and on the water. This may include ensuring your boat is operating at expected optimal efficiency and safety. However, you may be having difficulty finding the parts you need within a reasonable delivery timeline. Some companies, for instance, are experiencing up to a four-to six-week lead time, which isn’t a viable option when you’re eager to get cruising and your season may only be a short few months.
As the weather continues to get warmer, getting back out on the water again becomes a genuine and tangible prospect. Which makes it even more essential to take a close look at our vessel to make sure it's up to speed, operationally sound, and engineered for optimal performance.
PYI has a vested interest in making sure you are aware of some of the items that can affect your boat's long-term use. Keeping your boat, a considerable asset, at an operational level helps to ensure its seaworthiness, and we don't have to tell you it's also more affordable in the long run. If you're interested in what it will take to get out on the water this year, read on.

One of the many benefits of KiwiGrip is the fact that you control the finished texture of your nonskid surface. Some vessels call for a very aggressive finish, while some have a need for a lighter, finer finish. With KiwiGrip, both extremes and everything in between are possible.
