We see a lot of inboard engines at our Pompano Beach marina that simply lack good preventive maintenance. Inboard engines and sterndrives require routine maintenance to extend their useful life in the beautiful South Florida waters, especially those that are left in salt water.
Simple and frequent inspection of installed sacrificial anodes (commonly referred to as Zinc’s) ensures that saltwater doesn’t attack your aluminum sterndrive.
Routine inspections of manifolds, risers, bellows and other key components can prevent catastrophic engine failure. Other simple preventative maintenance such as maintaining your antifouling paint on the stern drive itself inhibits marine growth. This is critical as barnacles tend to form on the driveshaft, shift and exhaust bellows causing tears. These tears can cause both small and large leaks, however the subsequent repair bill is often large.
The master marine technicians at the Boathouse Marine Center in Pompano are well versed in these simple checks and many more. With the proper preventive inboard engine maintenance, we can maintain the dependability of your inboard and sterndrive engine preventing costly repairs.
