Keeping The Boat In Proper Condition

Owning a boat can be a way to enjoy time on the lake on the weekends with family and friends. You can spend time alone fishing or reading a book, getting away from some of the stressful events of life. There are discount marine parts that can be purchased in order to maintain the operation of your boat, such as oil filters, batteries and propellers that might become eroded with rust. You can follow a few simple maintenance tips so that you have a pleasant environment while on a lake or the ocean. These are tips that can help to keep the boat operating and to keep it as clean as possible.

Even though the boat is in the water, it still needs to be washed on a regular basis. You want to remove any salt that has collected on the bottom and sides as this can eat at the paint and the metal. Fresh water and a small amount of soap should be used when cleaning. A long-handled brush is ideal as this can reach areas where you might not be able to get to that are on the bottom of the boat.

As with other vehicles, you need to keep the oil in the boat changed. Low oil can cause issues with the motor. An inboard and a stern drive boat require frequent oil changes as these have more strain on the motor. With the right tools, it’s easy to change the oil as everything is in one place. If you can’t reach the area to change the oil yourself, you need to take it to the dealer.

Examine the propellers and the fasteners. If these become corroded, then they can cause areas of the boat to become disabled until they are fixed. Some boats can possibly get by with only one propeller if there are two, but if both are damaged, then you can’t really get anywhere in the water. An anchor is another item that needs to be on the boat so that you can leave the vehicle in one place while you are in the water.

My Hollywood Walk of Fame

hollywood

Dream come true! We only see this on TV but last November we actually walked where celebrities walk , dined where most famous stars!! We have been to the most iconic landmarks of the city of Los Angeles – the HOLLYWOOD walk of Fame!!

The Hollywood of Fame being more than a tribute to the legends of Hollywood chronicles the meteoric rise of America’s film industry from the days of silent cinema to the present billion dollar blockbusters. The “sidewalk” stars salute actors, singers, directors, songwriters and other well known show biz personalities. Even Bugs Bunny , Micky Mouse and Snoopy has his own star!

Below the star, one can usually see a small emblem that signifies whether the star was an actor, a singer or a director etc. Usually a motion picture camera signifies a contribution to the film industry, a television set denotes the television industry, a phonograph record stands for the music industry, a microphone for the radio broadcast industry and the twin comedy masks stand for theater.

walk-of-fame
There are many other attractions on these blocks besides the stars. We saw a lot of  Comic Characters  like IronMan,  a Harlem  basketball Player, musicians in  soul food pedal   and of course Michael Jackson look-alike.

The other area attractions include: The Kodak Theatre, Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, Hollywood Museum, Hollywood Wax Museum, and Roosevelt Hotel.
