It’s Time For An Acid Flush!

AC acting funny?
It’s probably time for an acid flush.

It’s that time of the year again where the AC is constantly running and needs to be flushed out. This prevents your AC from issues of build up inside the system. Here are some examples of what happens when there’s build up and what it looks like when it’s been cleaned out.

Don’t Let Your Boat Catch A Cold!

Cold weather can cause a multitude of issues with your vessel.

Batteries

Batteries take the biggest hit during colder weather it is always recommended to have a quality charging system keeping your batteries maintained. If you have wet-cell batteries it is also recommended to keep them topped off with distilled water.

Not sure if your batteries are still good?

We can perform a simple pass or fail load test to your batteries to catch a problem before your batteries leave you stranded or give you the peace of mind that your batteries are healthy.

Annual Service

Most engine manufactures recommend servicing your engine annually.

This time of year is a great time to get an annual service done so you are ready for the Spring boating season. Let us give the most important part of your boat its yearly checkup. So you can get the reliability you deserve on the water. We go through your engines vitals, replace all necessary filters, fluids, and anodes.

Wash and Wax

The heat of the Summer puts a beating on the finish of your boat. Let us restore your boat back to new so when the weather warms up your boats protected from the sun while looking great on the water.

Monthly maintenance helps ensure your boat is ready when you are. We offer a variety of packages that can be custom tailored to your specific needs.

Reasons for choosing a yacht management company.

There are many reasons to choose a Yacht Management company–like ours–to take care of your boat/yacht services.

Absentee Boat Owner 

If you are away from your boat for most of the time, it is a really good idea to have someone keep an eye on it for reasons of weather (storm prep & cleanup afterwards), a general walk through every so often to make sure the boat is in working order and there are no leaks, electronic issues, or anything of that nature that could cause a problem. And, if you’re coming to town, there is someone to do a general walk through for your boat to make sure it looks nice for your short visit.

Not only do we do management of the inside, we also manage the outside such as making sure your boat is cleaned from top to bottom.

Local Boat Owner 

If you’re always on your boat, having a management company on tap is always a good idea. Monthly checklists–like ours–are great for boats that are consistently out on the water. Not only are we on the boat a few times a month, but everything will get checked, and if there are any service issues–we will be there for you and work with you to get it resolved.

Hurricane Preparation Service

As you know hurricane season is here and in full swing. We’ve already had a few named storms and some close calls. As a client of ours, we would like to make you aware of our Hurricane Preparation Service. During the event of a named storm–we will notify you and take action.

The actions are as follows:

  • 72 hours before the storm is scheduled to make landfall we will deploy extra fenders off of your vessel to prevent damage from docks and other vessels in the marina. We will double all lines and ensure the vessel is supported from the bow stern and other forward and aft spring lines. We will move the boat as far into the middle of the slip as possible to prevent damage.
  • We will remove canvas, cushions, and secure sails.
  • We monitor the vessel periodically when possible, and adjust as needed for storm surge, winds, etc.
  • If you are required to haul out we will arrange one of our staffed license captains to coordinate with the yard and move the vessel at the yards requested time.

This service cost is $200 minimum per instance, and includes the first two hours of labor. Each additional hour is $100.

We will return the vessels canvas, lines, fenders, etc. back to its original configuration after the storm has passed at the regular hourly rate contracted.

If you would like to sign up for these services, please give us a call at 727-433-TBYM, email us at info@tbyacht.com or stop by our website tbyacht.com.

Also, if you would like to follow the weather–we have a trusted source that we’ve used for years called Mike’s Weather Page which can be found at http://spaghettimodels.com/.
