INFO ON DAY AND THEIR BOARDS

At DAY1, our boards take our “Improve Every Day” philosophy to the water.  It’s all about reinvention and refinement.  Our wakesurfers represent true surf style, embracing the latest technology and materials to create an optimally performing board and simply a sweet ride.

We spend hundreds of hours a year behind the boat in a mechanically made wake.  Our boards are born from lakes and rivers, not an adaptation from the ocean. Our testing ground is ten steps out our back door and the turn of the ignition away.  We feel this puts us in a pretty unique position to harness the realities of the wakesurf world and help us take the sport into the future.

How to prepare your boat for the winter :Street Wise Tech Talk

Department: service

Subject: Lingering, unasked winterization questions: “prepare your boat for the winter”

Street Wise Tech Talk: Here I am to try to clear up some misconceptions about winterizing your boat. I get the feeling that many boat owners view it as a “drain only” procedure. In actuality, a winterization consists of three very important parts. Only one of which is draining the water out. I have been told repeatedly, “I keep my boat in a heated garage, so it is fine.”

Don’t be this guy!

First off, is your garage actually heated, OR JUST ATTACHED? The fact that we replaced 5 to 8 cracked blocks every spring, leads me to believe that not all garages are heated equally.

Second, what if there is a power failure? Now let us talk about fuel. Ethanol in gasoline may help with pollution, but is not boat engine friendly when it comes to the fuel system. Remember, ethanol is Hygroscopic, meaning it attracts water. The seals and o-rings in the system are not immune to ethanol’s effects. The fuel in the tank and in the whole fuel system itself needs to be stabilized. Unless you live in San Diego, you probably only use your boat 4 months a year. The gas we buy today just does not have that long of a shelf life, where sophisticated fuel delivery systems are used.

The third item is fogging the engine. Your internal engine parts are not going to move for 8 months. Does this mean that you can just start it in the spring and drive away? NO! Fogging the engine lubricates all the internal parts so they can sit for 8 months, or longer. Fogging these new fuel injected systems is not a simple task. You have invested money, as well as a place to store your boat and license it, so why not protect your investment for the long run. Take it to a certified shop for the proper factory winter maintenance, Like Seattle Water Sports!
