Pre Season RIB Checks (2) Mechanical and Electrics

Mechanical Checks
Check grap handles, RIB tube lines and lifelines for integrity.

Check ground tackle, lines, fenders, etc. It’s amazing how sitting in your RIB’s anchor locker doing nothing can still lead to degradation over time.

Check chainplates and cleats

Check hull/deck joint/RIB tube integrity

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

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM AND COMPONENTS

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

Check all electronics for proper operation

Inspect antennas
