Maintaining Your Inflatable Jet Boat

Maintaining Your Inflatable Jet Boat
When it comes to owning an inflatable jet boat, the key to keeping it in great condition lies in maintenance. Proper maintenance ensures that your boat stays in good shape, prevents damage, and ensures your safety while out on the water. Here are some tips on how to maintain your inflatable jet boat:

1. Clean Your Boat

One of the most important things you can do to maintain your inflatable jet boat is to clean it regularly. This should be done after every use to prevent dirt and debris from building up and causing damage. During the season, a simple rinse it off with fresh water and let it dry completely before storing it away is all that is needed. However, at the end of the season, give your boat a more thorough clean using warm soapy water, making sure to get into all the crevices and hard-to-reach areas. 

2. Inspect the Boat

Every time you use your inflatable jet boat, take the time to inspect it for any damage or wear and tear. Check the seams, valves, and the entire surface of the boat. If you notice any damage, take care of it immediately to prevent further damage from occurring. Repair kits are readily available and can be used to fix small holes or tears in the material.

3. Inflate the Boat Properly

Inflatable jet boats should be inflated to the recommended pressure level before use. Overinflating the boat can cause it to burst, while underinflation can cause the boat to sag or become unstable in the water. Use a pressure gauge to ensure that your boat is inflated to the correct pressure level.

4. Store the Boat Properly

When your boating season is over, it’s important to store your inflatable jet boat properly. Make sure it’s clean and dry before storing it away in a cool, dry place. Keep it away from direct sunlight and heat sources, which can cause the material to deteriorate over time.

5. Make Regular Maintenance a Priority

Regular maintenance is key to keeping your inflatable jet boat in top condition. This includes oil changes, checking the engine, and replacing any worn-out parts. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for maintenance or email us directly, and make sure to perform the necessary tasks on a regular basis to prevent any issues from arising.
Maintaining your inflatable jet boat is essential for its longevity and your enjoyment on the water. Follow these tips to keep your boat in great condition and ensure that it lasts for years to come.

I just want to say how happy I am with your Solar Package, especially the awesome trailer. The boat motor and trailer are set up real good. It’s a credit to you all.

Thank you and your company for the very professional service and correspondence in my purchase of one of your Solar Strela inflatables. 

I have completed the two hours on the initial running in at half throttle of the motor and am looking forward to the power that I feel the engine can produce in making a safe trip in the river when I have to open it up. The boat performs probably beyond my expectations in cornering and stopping in a hurry.

Best thing my husband has ever brought. You know I thought oh no it'll mean you'll be out with your mate's 247, but no it has brought our family closer and we have had many family adventures boating all across New Zealand. Stewart Island, Lake Hauroko, Wairaurahiri River, lake wanaka, the Wilkin, the horomanga, the whirinaki, waimana river, waioweka gorge, rangiteiki river, amongst a few, best purchase ever.

My husband and I were privileged to be able to hunt with Gary on his boat and what an awesome experience it was. We were able to penetrate deep into the Ngahere via the river. We quickly accessed the good hunting spots. These spots would normally take a long day of walking to access.

The boat managed the problematic areas of the river with ease and our comfort was not compromised. The boat was more than capable of the payload of 3 people, 3 dogs, and our hunting gear. Not to mention our harvested quarry on the return trip home.

I have been using GT Marine and Alloy services for over 10 years now for all alloy repairs to my truck and trailer units. Their workmanship and service are second to none. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.
