Pre Season RIB Checks (2) Mechanical and Electrics

Mechanical Checks

Check condition of hoses and clamps

Make sure below waterline hoses are double clamped

Check bilge pumps for automatic and manual operation

Check limber holes and make sure they are clear of debris


Check battery water level

Check/recharge batteries

Check terminals for corrosion, clean and lubricate

Check bonding system

Inspect all wiring for wear and chafe

Test all gauges for operability

Check shore power and charger

Check for spare fuses

Check all lighting fixtures (including navigation lights) and make sure you have spare bulbs
