Britt was able to visit Utah Lake with Ty Hunter, the boating program manager to learn about some tips for boaters before Memorial Day Weekend.

  • Make sure your trailer is ready to go: Check your tires, grease the bearings and trailer lights are working.
  • If you're not comfortable with the mechanics, take it into a shop.
  • Take care of your boat battery through the winter and test it before you head out to the water.
  • Ensure that the fuel system is in good condition.
  • Check belts, hoses, plugs and clamps.
