A Complete Guide On the Difference Between Freshwater vs. Saltwater Boating
Recently updated

8/29/2022
Whichever type of boating you prefer, the most important investment you can make is in the quality of your boats and their maintenance.

People who enjoy boating do not want to limit themselves to one type of water. They want to see freshwater lakes and rivers as well as saltwater oceans. 

 

Premier Watersports boats for sale in Knoxville, Tennessee, giving some essential details about the key difference between saltwater and freshwater boating and the steps to maintain and take care of your boat. 

 

The main differences between saltwater and freshwater boats include:

  • Hull Design: 

The hull design of your boat determines its ability to operate safely. Most freshwater boats have a hull close to the water's surface and ride in small waves, and a saltwater boat has a hull designed to operate in rougher conditions, such as more giant waves and deeper water. 

  • Engine Cooling System:

Water is drawn in from the outside and circulated through the engine to remove heat in raw water cooling systems. Saltwater boats generally have a closed cooling system in which water is drawn in from the outside, circulated through the engine, and filtered before recirculating. 

Freshwater Vs. Salt Water: Maintenance and Care:

  • Zinc Anodes:

Zinc anodes are used to prevent corrosion on boats. As a result, if you are boating in salt water, you must inspect your zinc anodes regularly and replace them when they become drained. Fresh water boats do not typically come with zinc anodes installed, but they can be added as an extra measure of protection by your boat dealer.

  • Bottom Paint:

It is crucial to have the bottom of your boat painted before launching it into the water. It will act as a barrier between the metal hull and the water, and it will also help in reducing corrosion. 

Whichever type of boating you prefer, the most important investment you can make is in the quality of your boats and their maintenance. Following proper maintenance protocols, you can ensure that your boat will last for many years.
