Boating Tip of the Day: Lighten Up!
Boat owners love to talk about their boat’s performance, everything from the props they’re running to the hull design. But one of the most overlooked factors that can negatively impact a boat’s performance is load weight. Over the course of several seasons, boaters typically bring stuff on board for one reason or another, but then it never leaves. So once a year, take time to inventory what’s aboard and empty whatever you don’t need. You'll be surprised how removing weight from your boat helps with overall speed, handling and fuel efficiency.
