Signs You Need Boat Repairs

Boat malfunctions come in many forms. You could also notice issues with your electronics, or face structural damages after a collision. If you notice your boat is not performing as usual, your best bet is to call our experts. Our diagnosis could save you from dangerous sailing as well as expensive repairs in the future.

Here are six common boat malfunctions, and when you should call for boat repairs.

Sputtering or Loss of Power

Similarly, if your boat won’t run at full speed or stops completely, you could be facing a number of problems. If you have sufficient fuel, the engine could be compromised by dirty filters, faulty spark plugs, or a complex electrical issue.

Your Boat Won’t Start

This could be a simple fix or a sign of a larger issue. First, check for disconnected switches and ensure your boat has enough fuel. Also, make sure any safety features are turned off.


If that doesn’t do the trick, you may be facing a deeper problem like:


  • Loose or pinched fuel lines

  • Faulty spark plugs

  • Contamination in the fuel system or ignition points

  • Dead battery

  • Disconnected kill switch

  • Defective connection

Unusual Sounds

Know what your boat sounds like on a normal day and listen for changes. If your motor noises grow louder or new ones emerge, you should stop sailing and seek repairs.


  • Fluctuation in engine noise could signal an air leak in the suction line, a clogged filter, impurities in the fuel, or a failing fuel pump or injector pump.

  • A squealing noise could be from a loose V-belt or issues with its components. This may be a symptom of overload or deterioration.

  • Cracking or creaking when running at speed could indicate delamination, potential transom detachment, structural bonds breaking between bulkheads or supports, or other severe problems.

  • A starting thunk when you turn on the engine. This “clunk” noise could be caused by a hydraulic lock due to water leakage, or a bad starter, engagement gear, or solenoid.

  • A growling sound could mean the boat bearings are starting to wear off or fail.

Overheating Engine

If your temperature gauge goes red, you see unusual steam, or your engine feels weak, stop immediately. Continuing to use the engine could cause serious damage or even start a fire.


An overheating engine is usually caused by a problem in the cooling system, including clogged water systems or a broken water pump, or a serious problem with the drive belt.


Overheating engines can be prevented by regularly topping off your oil and flushing your engine after every trip. But if your engine starts overheating, stop and call for help. Trying to fix it yourself could lead to injury and further costly damage to the engine.

Increased Vibrations

All boats vibrate, but intense vibrations could be a symptom of a serious engine problem. You’ll know them when you feel them. If your boat feels particularly shaky, stop and call us to diagnose the issue.

Steering Wheel Malfunctions

If your steering wheel feels stuck or difficult to turn, you need repairs as soon as possible. It could be a problem with hydraulic fluid — if adding fluid does not make the issue go away, call for repairs immediately.

Solve Boat Issues Before They Escalate

Boats require skilled maintenance to keep the electronics, motor, and body working together for smooth, safe sailing.
