Harbor Service

Auxiliaries

With engines, there are four basic systems that can let you down in the summer.

  • Cooling
  • Fuel
  • Electrical
  • Transmission

All four of these, if left unattended, can lead to a catastrophic engine failure, likely occurring at the most inopportune time. If you broke down the night before a big event, what would you be willing to pay to have your boat fixed and operational in time? If you maintain the boat over the winter, the cost will likely be a small fraction of that number. A good maintnenace schedule can keep you moving all summer long. However, in the event that you missed something over the winter, we will be there for you in the summer.

Standing & Running Rigging

With sail boats, it is a good idea to remove all of your running rigging over the winter to minimize the degradation of the lines. But if you lose a halyard or have a problem with your furler, we can come to the harbor and get you going.
