When I started to offer all day rentals on my charter boat, I was a bit worried about making sure that I could keep the boat running well and safely. I wasn’t as worried as I might have been because part of renting out the boat would be me going along as a guide and the driver of the boat. Still I wanted to make sure that I did everything I could to keep my boat running well.
The boat that I was using for charters was small compared to what many people might want to rent, but it was perfect for small groups. I have a Mercury outboard on the back of it and a secondary backup motor as well just in case something happens. I always make sure to use the right variety of Mercury engine oil to keep my outboard running smoothly.
