There are many items to check and recheck before launching a boat for the first trip of the season. If you want professional help, find a good boat mechanic and take your boat in for a full inspection and tune up. The Coast Guard Auxiliary conducts free vessel safety checks throughout the year and will check all your safety equipment to make sure you're ready for the water. If you do decide to do it yourself you can follow this Spring Start-Up Checklist.
