MAINTENANCE AND ADMINISTRATION OF BOATS

Keep your boat immaculate!

Regular maintenance is required on your yacht due to protect it from continual exposure to the harsh ocean environment.


The sun, rain, water, salt and wind can badly degrade it. Without regularly scheduled services, cleaning, and winterizing, your vessel won’t run properly, and you won’t have the chance to enjoy it when you want to go out.

The proper Tecni-Marine boat maintenance extends the life of your boat and reduces the need for costly repairs, but it also helps ensure boating safety for all those aboard.

We’ve been raised with boats, and we’re certified in the latest techniques for boat repair and maintenance, using the highest-quality products and tools.

Our emphasis is on safety, reliability, durability and efficiency.

We’ll treat carefully your investment!

ENGINE REPAIRS & MAINTENANCE

Our experience is that 80% of all the engines we see, in terms of the maintenance condition, come nowhere close to what the manuals recommend.

home_jet_list2

Preventive

A preventive boat motor maintenance facilitates safe boating and can keep your motor running well and reliable for years. It’s mandatory to do a basic engine survey annually. This essentially inspection is to search for small problems before they become big ones. The cost to do this is not high.

DIESEL TANK CLEANING

In the last ten years, boats fuels have become increasingly environment friendly. Due to this, the sea weeds which are in contact with the oxygen in diesel tanks find ideal conditions for survival and development.

This, however makes it easier for pumps and injectors to get corrosion, which in some cases, might provoke bottlenecks in filters and piping. If worse comes to worse, this might stop completely an engine.

To avoid any these situations, Tecni-Marine advices, the regular cleaning of the boat fuel by a specialized technician.

Remember that if your fuel oil doesn´t have oxygen, sea weeds cannot develop on it.

home_jet_list2

Why clean my tanks?

  • Increased reliability of your engine and generator
  • Increased power
  • Less filter changes
  • Less wear on your injectors and fuel pumps
  • Less smoke and better fuel economy
  • Less corrosion

SCUBAR SERVICE

Teci-Marine is the agent for Portugal of the revolutionary Scubar, which allows for checks in one of the least accessible parts of the boat: the hull.

With a neck which cans stretch from 1.5 for 4.0 meters, it is totally flexible and can reach the most awkward parts of the boat. As its vey end, it has a waterproof camera and built-in bright Led lights, which allow for an excellent visibility in a full colour TFT monitor. Among its various features, the Scubar includes the following:

home_jet_list2

Scuba

  • Checking of fouled props and rudders;
  • Checking of anodes for signs of erosion;
  • Inspection of anchoring positions;
  • Look out for underwater hull damage or clearances;
  • Checking for weed and barnacle growth,
  • Checking of underwater pontoons or sea walls;
  • Inspection of those awkward to reach places as eg electrical boxes and engines.

BATTERY SERVICES

The usual reason why boat batteries are dead is due to having the wrong care and maintenance. The most common battery problems arise from moored boats that are used infrequently by the owner. Proper and regular maintenance program in the batteries will lengthen their service life! Tecni-Marine can test your old batteries, safely remove any dead units and fit new marine batteries in your boat.

ANTI-FOULING BOTTOM PAINTINGS

Bottom fouling results from 3 primary causes: Marine Life, Plants and Algae slime. Anti-fouling bottom paintings are an essential part in the maintenance of your yacht. We carry out a precise inspection of all yachts so as to get a clear picture of the state of the bottom of each vessel. We work with one type of paint: Nautix – Painting Specialist The basic of the application is the preparation of the bottom and we respect the healing time of each coat of paint. We inform our clients and friends that is better to loose another day with the drying of the paint than to rush the job and ruin the paint job which has been carried out, so be patient and give your boatyard the time to carry out the job well done. Needless to say, the general rule is that the more expensive the material, the slower it deteriorates, whereas cheaper materials deteriorate more rapidly. Anti-fouling bottom paint can help keep your boat's hull in good condition, prevent barnacle attachment and algae growth, and will help your boat move through the water faster and more efficiently.

ZINC ANODES

Zinc anodes of various shapes and sizes are used on boats to protect other metals from galvanic corrosion. Replacing antifoul, zinc anodes regularly is crucial for the protection and performance of the boat. Zinc anodes provide a very simple, cost-effective maintenance-free method of corrosion control. It would be hard to overstate the importance of maintaining the zinc & anodes on your boat. When zinc is gone, the metal component it was installed to protect begins to dissolve.

home_jet_list2

Zincs are installed on the:

  • Shafts
  • Rudders
  • trim tabs
  • DVD Players supplied by Linn, Sony, etc;
Replace them every year, at least. If they’re doing a proper job, they should be at least half eaten away in 12 months.

POLISH SERVICE

Bottom fouling results from 3 primary causes: Marine Life, Plants and Algae slime. After a few years, even if you have cared for it lovingly, the sun and salt will dull the shine of your boat. On coloured hulls this looks even worse. Good boat maintenance is reflected in the appearance of your boat, which is almost totally determined by the condition of the gelcoat. A badly maintained gelcoat can lead to oxidation. Oxidation also leads to greater damage through water intrusion. Restoring your boat's gelcoat and then following a gelcoat maintenance plan will increase the life and value of your boat. Tecni-Marine has available a polish service to take care of the gel coat of your boat. We can polish your hull to remove oxidation and salt and preserve the mirror finish with a protective layer of wax polish for performance. Our specialized technicians will bring the boat back to life, reviving the lustre of the gel coat, making the boat look as new.

OSMOSIS TREATMENTS

The term osmosis was originally used to describe the biological process whereby a liquid (usually water) will pass through a semi-permeable membrane. The membrane is permeable to the water molecules but not the various compounds dissolved within the water. The overall flow of the water molecules will be from the solution of lowest concentration towards the solution of higher concentration. The Osmosis is the tendency of fluid substances, if separated by a porous membrane to filter through it and become equally diffused. Generally, when you lift your boat up on a shipyard, you see small bubbles forming on the bottom of the hull (sometimes even above the waterline), it is usually water absorption under the gelcoat of the boat and sometimes into the fibreglass. The osmosis is almost a fiber cancer, and if we don´t treat it, this problem will contaminate all the fibers of the bottom of your boat. We are at this moment developing this area and we have invested money and time to protect your boat from this serious problem the best way possible.
