Hi. We’re at Seatech Marine today here with John.

Today we’re going to help people, who have sports cruisers, understand what they need to do basically to keep                                    their sports cruisers in good nick, and also [what] they’re going to do to avoid that breakdown and unexpected                                    expenses by finding out a bit about the professional maintenance on sports cruisers that we do here at Seatech                                    Marine. 

Hey, John.

 

John:                       

 

Hey, Mel.

 

Mel:       

 

Hey.

 

John:                     

 

How’s it going?

 

Mel:                       

 

Yeah, good.

So can you tell us a little about this boat? It’s a pretty big boat.

 

John:                     

 

Yeah, it’s a decent size. We got the 45 foot in this shed, so it’s a 42 hardtop, so it’s a bit of a squeeze, but, yeah,                                    nice and comfortable in this size shed.

 

Mel:                       

 

And you’ve got this in for annual servicing?

 

John:                   

 

Yeah, annual servicing. Periodical maintenance is a big thing. If you keep with your servicing, it saves big                                            expenses if something does turn pear-shaped.

 

Mel:                       

 

Okay. How do you make sure you’re picking up on all these different things that might go wrong through the                                        year if it’s only once a year?

 

John:                     

 

We like feedback that comes back through with the client, so we advise if they have a concern, to ring us on the                                    phone and send us an email. We’re happy to address that.

With this particular boat though, I actually went down and picked the boat up from the gentleman’s house,                                        drove it up ourselves. We get the actual feel of what the boat is, what he feels is what the boat should go like                                        compared to what it does. There was a few other items there we had to do.

So driving the boat around we found the steering was quite notchy. A quick inspection [and we] realized [that]                                    the sealant had popped out. We can sort that in-house. It just shows, because we are actually driving so many                                      different variants of vessels, we get to feel what’s normal, what’s not; and it’s also specializing in a particular                                      brand, which this happens to have a Vollay in it. We’re all certificated as Vollay dealers, so it makes it a lot                                            easier.

Now what we’ll do with this vessel is we’ll keep you up to date. We’ve actually got quite a fair bit of work to do to                                  this one; detailing, and mechanical side of things. The beauty of having an undercover shed.

What we also have been finding is every time a boat’s in for a service, we actually download the diagnostic side                                    of things. So next year when it comes in we then do the same. We can actually compare the parameters for how                                    it was running last year to how it’s running this year.

 

Mel:                       

 

Wow.

 

John:                   

 

We can see a sensor value difference and then chase the problem from there. So it’s just knowing the product at                                  the end of the day.

If anyone’s got any queries or questions or like to book in their vessel, please hit us up on either phone number,                                  webpage, or send us an email, or look us up on Facebook. Thank you.

 

Mel:                       

 

Okay, great.
