To minimize water intrusion, store your watercraft on the trailer with drain plugs loose and the bow slightly elevated to prevent rain water from collecting. After you pull the craft out at the launch ramp, likewise loosen the drain plug to drain away any water as you drive home. If possible, leave the saddle off or access panels removed for several hours after a ride to allow time for remaining water to evaporate before covering the craft. When out riding, avoid continuously dunking the bow of the craft or riding so aggressively that you risk capsizing the boat. Should you capsize, always refer to the prominent warning label at the stern that details in which direction you should ride the craft to prevent the potential of water entering the engine.
