Jetski Winter Maintenance Advice

Tips and Advice for looking after your Jetski and Personal kit through the colder winter months Unlike most other seasonal sports equipment, a big investment like a jetski needs year round attention. It’s not just a case of spraying it down ready for the 4/5 months of sitting on the trailer. Here are 5 key tips & advice from ourselves and the mechanics on how to prolong the life of your gear: Winterising Why is this vital? Essentially it’s to prevent the engine from seizing up or the engine block from cracking. Jetski winterising isn’t the same as an annual service. Some workshops will recommend opting for your annual service to be done at the same time as winterising, however due to the amount of additives put into the ski during winterising, our jetski mechanics onsite highly recommend getting your service booked for early spring so you have a freshly oiled and checked jetski ready to go for the new summer season. During the winterising process several things happen: a lubricating mist is forced into the throttle body and cylinders; all metal workings and electronics are sprayed with water repellent lubricant (such as Seadoo XPS lube) to prevent moisture and rust from creeping in; the flush system is run through with anti-freeze; a fuel stabilizer is run through the injectors & tank; the battery is disconnected, and the bearings of your trailer are greased up. Even though the product list isn’t too long, we’d always suggest leaving this process to the professionals.   Of course, if by chance you’re the type of jetskier that likes a crisp morning ride...

Company Team Building Day Vs Company Awayday

Taking your staff out the office can often be a stressful process for the person co-ordinating the teams proposed schedule. Here at Jetski Safaris we offer a range of activities which cover both Team Building Events on the Water such as our Rib Treasure Hunts or just simply a multi activity day to let your employees relax and bond as a group.  We have put several tips below to help and should you want a bespoke quote for your team activity then please contact our office for more details. • Employers should set out their objectives and what they want to achieve from the awayday. • A seniority-free environment will get the best out of the entire group. • Timing must be appropriate. For example, a company awayday for the accounts team will not go down well around the end of the financial year. • Consider the differing physical abilities and tastes of all staff members. Remember most of all : Employees are motivated by being rewarded and by offering employees the right mixture of incentives, benefits and training, it helps to attract higher-quality candidates, as well as help to retain current employees. So what does the Ultimate Day on the Water Look Like?? We recently put together an Event for a client which included the Charter of 2 Luxury Yachts, A Rib Powerboat, 2 Jetskis and 2 Flyboard Aquatic Jetpacks. Clients were able to experience a sail from Poole Harbour to Studland aboard the Yachts, once at anchor they were then able to learn to Flyboard, drive the Jetskis and have a tour of the Jurassic Coast on the Rib....

SeaDoo SAR Watercraft Testing

Last weekend a few of the Jetski Safari Instructors were fortunate to test the all new SeaDoo SAR Rescue Watercraft which is the first to hit the UK and supplied by Offshore Performance. With some quite lively conditions out in Poole Bay we were able to put the SeaDoo SAR through its paces. This Rescue Craft has been specifically designed and created for the commercial user in various environments.     The Sea-Doo SAR, a Search and Rescue watercraft, seamlessly combines the features you need to respond to life threatening situations. It is designed for breath-taking rescue performances, from surf to white-water, during a flood or along a rocky coast. The Sea-Doo SAR watercraft excels in rescue missions but is also ideal for evacuation, surveillance and interception. Jetski Safaris continues to work closely with Offshore Performance and Golden Arrow Marine and are more than happy to look at any Commercial Personal Watercraft Requirements regarding Training or sourcing of...
