ENGINE DIAGNOSTICS

Marine Engine Diagnostics is the analysis of the engine’s built in computer system. This is done by connecting to the engine’s Electronic Control Module (ECM). The computers and software we use has an adapter unique to the engine manufacturer to provide valuable information regarding the engines’ history. 

By connecting into the ECM we can learn valuable information regarding your potential purchase. By doing engine diagnostic scans this enables the surveyor to verify valuable information such as the actual engine hours, the RPM run history so we know how the engines have been operated during their life, current engine fault codes as well as historic fault codes.

SHIPYARD SERVICES

Our shipyard services encompass everything from simple repairs to extensive refits on vessels of all types. A combination of our experience, project management, and attention to detail has created a reputation for unrivaled results and customer benefits.

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE

Scheduling means you don’t have to think about when your equipment needs servicing. Save money in long-term repair costs, spot problems before they become a major headache and adhere to government safety standards. Marine applications are one of the most severe environments possible for engines and equipment. Heavy load, high RPM operation, saltwater, extreme temperatures, high moisture and periods of non-use all take a toll on your equipment. 

 

Retain the value of your equipment investment with comprehensive, scheduled maintenance programs.
