Johnathan Stuckey Fishing: Boat Overview and Maintenance
Boat Maintenance by Johnathan Stuckey
A boat is an expensive undertaking and with ethanol fuels preventative maintenance is crucial to the long and reliable life of your boat. My maintenance schedule is very routine and yours should be too. I use Quicksilver Quickare at every fill up to treat my gas and some Quickleen every few tanks to make sure I clean any carbon deposits. Every time I use the Quickleen I also go around my trailer and Bob’s Action Series jackplate and grease every fitting with QS 2-4-C grease. Quicksilver DFI oil is the only oil that’s been through my engine since day one. I really believe in only running the DFI specific oil after having a 99 Optimax for 13 years without the first blow up or engine problem. I change fuel filters every 6 months no matter what and plugs every 100 hours. The computer and fuel systems in today’s motors need everything running perfect to get the most performance and life out of them.
Now on to something that is often overlooked by most including myself until last year. Quicksilver also makes all the filters, spark plugs, gear lube, grease, plug wires, pvs plugs for your prop, 4 stroke oil, and a whole host of other stuff for everything from a bass boat to a cabin cruiser. Our 32 foot Sea Ray gets only the best for its annual maintenance from Quicksilver Products.
