Safety Tip...don't sink your boat

Is your boat equipped with a dock water inlet valve??  This is the connection that allows you to hookup your boats fresh water system directly to the water outlet on your pedestal.  It can be a great convenience, but also has the potential to cause a disaster.  If the pedestal water is left on while you are away and there is a connection failure,  it will eventually sink your boat.   Last week one of our service techs noticed a boat riding low in the water. He discovered a hose connection failure on the water inlet valve system and the boat had taken on a large quantity of water.  Had it not been noticed by an observant tech, it would have been a major disaster for the boat owner.

If you are currently using a dock water inlet valve – Remember to shut off your pedestal water supply whenever you leave the boat.

Time for a great deal on Pikes Bay Clothing, going on now!
