The clouds have finally started to part, the sun has resumed its customary position in the sky, and Spring is finally here. You know what that means; it means boat season is upon us. But before you take your boat out on the bay, lake, or open water, you need to prepare for boat season with the needed supplies. San Diego Car Stereo specializes in marine audio and boat stereo installation, which is definitely 1 of the 7 things you need for San Diego boat season. To learn more about marine audio installation, contact us today by calling (858) 569-0777.
1. Marine Audio and Water Resistant Speakers
When you are out on the water soaking in the San Diego sunshine on your boat, take things to the next level with a marine audio system. These water-resistant speakers can make a great day that much better, either by starting the party with your favorite jams or setting the tone with some relaxing tunes. A boat stereo system gives you crystal clear sound that can be heard over even the loudest engine, giving you everything you need for a perfect day out on the water.
2. A Boat Radio System
You always want to be prepared in case of an emergency. While most people have a cell phone, you never know if the battery might die, the phone might get wet and not work, or if you don’t have a good signal. A radio allows you to ask for help regardless of the situation. We also suggest equipping your boat with a whistle and flares in case of an emergency.
The sun can really beat down on you, especially when reflected from the surface of a body of water. That is why we always suggest having some sunscreen on hand to protect your skin from damage from the sun’s UV rays. Also, have a sun hat and a pair of sunglasses handy.
4. A Map of the Region
Again, you never know what can happen to your cell phone, so you cannot rely on it for a map. Make sure that somewhere on the boat you have an accurate and up to date map of the region, allowing you to chart your course. You should also have a compass available to guide you.
5. A Colorful Floatation Device
Prepare for the worst with a colorful flotation device, be it a circular lifesaver or a raft. You never know if you someone will fall off the boat or if you will need to evacuate, so make sure you have the necessary safety equipment.
6. Multiple Life Jackets
You may be an expert swimmer, but you never know the ability of your guests. Have an assortment of life jackets on board, including children’s life jackets, to make sure everyone on board is safe.
7. First Aid Kit
Without easy access to a convenience store while on the water, you need to have a first aid kit on board in case there is a cut, scrape, or something worse. Buy a fully stocked first aid kit to treat you and your passengers.
