Say, Spiderman went fishing. Would make you wonder if his mighty web would work on marine life. Still, since there would be no buildings for him to latch on, the mighty Spidey would be left latched on the boat, dependent on it for support. And appreciating the boat he would probably blurt out: With great boats, comes great responsibility.
You might laugh but it’s true. The quip part at least. You can have a great boat but if you don’t take measure to keep its beauty, it won’t matter. Precious as it is to you, to your fishing and to your water adventure, your boat needs all the attention and care to last.
It’s no secret the Land Down Under is a fisherman’s haven. Not only is it littered with inland waterways that are most coveted to a seemingly list of favourite fishing spots, the continent itself lies at the middle of the Great Pacific. From pristine lakes to hidden fishing holes to the ocean, all these only serve to accentuate the need for a reliable boat.
Truly Australia is home to the most beautiful boats money can buy, thanks to the Land Down Under’s rich list. What is apparent though is that no matter how big or how small the boat, maintaining it is a must.
Obviously, a boat and a car are two distinct animals. But though one has wheels and the other devoid of one, both need constant maintenance against the ravages of time.
For instance, as cars go, paint protects it from rust. On the other hand, boats need marine varnish to protect it from the corrosive properties of salt water. In addition, whether your ride is a fishing boat or a yacht, making maintenance routine is best. Most importantly, one should make it a ritual before entering the waters. Knowing something in the boat is wrong while you’re in the middle of the sea is already too late.
Routine maintenance is essential to many of life’s conveniences – it’s the trade-off for the convenience, after all. And one of the easiest ways to do that is to apply paint.
