Default I love the photo of the fuel/water separator.

Obviously this one was installed and forgotten for a long time. Hose it down and spray it with a little silicone spray to prevent outside rust. Change every year or 300 hours, which ever comes first. (If you don't put 300 hours on your engine, why have a boat in the first place?)

Great reminder Livingston Marine. Time to git'er done. March is too late. Be ready to go early.

Captken I think some people rely on if it ain't broke don't fix it a little to much sometimes, and forget that a little maintenance can go along way. This particular customer didn't even know it was there plus what it even was.

Default Whether you know much about engines and boats or not--

You oughta be intimately familiar with the workings and conditions of your ride. Failure to maintain some items will bite you on the ass some day. What happens when you are coming in the pass and the engine conks out? Plan for such eventualities. YOUKNOWWHAT HAPPENS!

My steering went out in a 50' wide pass down here (Withlacoochee River) in a blinding rain storm and 30kt wind. Big, nasty rocks on both sides of the channel. My anchor went down in 10 seconds and I was able to snub us off within 10 feet of rocks. We got mighty wet but we survived. With the strong outgoing tide, it could have gotten fatally ugly. Thirty minutes later, we headed in in bright sunshine with my little 15hp kicker. I fished the next day with a new steering head and cable.

Living a long life is a lot more likely if you don't depend on luck. Take care of your stuff or pray a lot more.
