Freequently Asked Questions

Why Do We Make Fuss About Service?

Boating is not often thought of as a harsh environment: however marine engines need to be designed and built for one tough job. Marine engines can often be used for extended periods at wide open throttle operation (up to 6000rpm on some models) in harsh waters and sun, then sit in storage over winter for up to 6 or 7 months without any use. That’s why it’s important to have your engine inspected and serviced at least once a year – even if you haven’t reached 100hrs. Sometimes, even infrequent use may also lead to starting or reliability problems that you don’t need right in the middle of your valuable recreational boating time.

Regular check-ups enable your authorized dealer to attend to any tune-up, service or warranty issues to ensure you get maximum pleasure and carefree running out of your engine. Keeping you safe on the water at Lakeside Marine making quality, reliable engines is our number 1 goal, but like anything mechanical, regular maintenance is the best way to keep it functioning at it’s best. Even if your engine isn’t put to the test every day, it’s important that the basics are checked and serviced regularly throughout the life of the engine. Changing the oil, lubricants, fuel filters, spark plugs and anodes is all part of keeping you safe and reliable on the water
