There are a couple of things you can do to ensure a successful boat transport. This includes securing any loose items and taking precautions to avoid travel damage. Before dismantling anything on your boat, take photos so that you have something to reference when reassembling the boat after the transport. Then, remove all personal items from your boat. Clean your boat’s exterior and inspect for any damages. It is also advised that you have it inspected by a licensed marine surveyor.1. Pick a loading spot that has a 14' clearance.2. Secure all loose gear above and below deck.3. Close and secure any hatches; seal them to avoid any possible water damage.4. Cabin windows also need to be latched and taped from the outside.5. Drain all fuel and water tanks and remove any drain plugs from the hull.6. Disconnect batteries, and secure the cables away from it to prevent any contact.
Ensure a successful boat transport
Before moving your boat onto its trailer, replace or service the wheel bearing to prevent breakdown, as a rule, if your bearings have not been serviced in the last six months have it professionally done, as travel builds up tremendous heat which can cause failure. Salt-water exposure makes bearings especially vulnerable.
Have your tires checked for proper inflation, sufficient tread, cracks, bubbles, or gouges in the rubber, and remember that 5 year old+ tires should be replaced, as this will prevent blow out during transport. Always have a spare tire. Even if you have to purchase one, the cost is nominal to what a service repair would be on the road. Your small boat transport company does not carry all the tools necessary for all repairs.
