Seasickness is the reaction of your body’s inner ear balance system to the unfamiliar motion of the ship. The movement can cause stress, leaving you sick to your stomach with headaches and nausea.

One of the common questions we get is how do I know the service interval of my product? The easiest answer is to check your owner’s manual to determine what the service interval is for your specific product. Servicing your product in line with the manufacturer recommendations helps to keep the product primed and ready to go. Additionally, by inspecting your product based on your manufactures’ service intervals, you will increase the life expectancy of your investment.

Planning for a man overboard

No boater wants to believe it can happen to them, and yet, according to BoatUS, it claims the lives of 749 Americans a year. Even worse, 90% of those deaths occur in calm weather with seas of less than 1 foot. A man overboard is always an emergency situation. Lack of planning and preparation can turn the situation into an extremely dangerous one for both the victim as well as the rescuers on board.
