Prelaunch Tips from Cobb’s Marina

March 15, 2018




Let us know how we can help ensure your boating season on the Chesapeake Bay goes as smoothly as possible this year. It’s nearly here, and boaters are getting anxious for spring launch. Call us to schedule your boat check-up, and get ready to launch in a few weeks with our expert pre-splash recommendations.

From our experience, some things need attention before you put the boat back in the water. It doesn’t matter if yours is a powerboat or sailboat with an inboard or outboard, we can assist with spring commission services and preventative maintenance. Time spent now can make a huge difference in performance and reliability on the water this season.
