Just like an aircraft, automobile, or any other vehicle, a boat will inevitably need repairs after certain intervals. Repairs will usually require the ship to dock, but depending on the severity of the repairs, they can also be done at sea assuming a support vessel has the necessary equipment, parts, and repairmen capable of carrying out the task. There are three categories of marine repair: electrical and mechanical repairs, marine engine repairs, and emergency response repairs. This blog will explain each type and what they entail.

Whether there is the unveiling of new gadgets, different airplane models, or flying vehicles, the world is excited and enthusiastic about the eventual fate of flying, which is the reason so many eyes are intently following the advancement of the E-Fan, the main airplane fueled by electrical power. A two-seat trial airplane, created via Airbus Group and accomplices, the E-Fan is the primarily 100% electrical airplane. With its first flight early this year, in half a month time it will be uncovered which company will be manufacturing the airplane.

Across all machine design seals, the O-ring remains the most common type for a variety of reasons. O-rings are fairly inexpensive to produce, simple to manufacturer, highly reliable, and provide for quick installation. Because of this, the O-ring is used in many different applications and provides for a number of uses. In this blog, we will discuss what O-rings are, some of their various types, and their shelf life.

The marine radar of a ship is useful for providing the captain and crew awareness of other ships and land obstacles that are surrounding them during their voyage. Detection is achieved through the radar emission of a radio signal which bounces back to the radar when it comes into contact with another marine vessel or object, thus providing an estimate of surrounding targets. With this reading, the captain and crew can then enact collision avoidance and properly navigate the ocean safely.

In aviation, a connector is an essential tool that aids and facilitates maintenance when frequent disconnection of parts is necessary. As aircraft connectors are used frequently, it’s important that they are well maintained. They go through harsh conditions and heavy vibration, but despite their conditions that they must weather, these aviation parts are designed to be durable. While there are different families and types of connectors, each serves its own individual purpose as coupling parts. If you’re working in the aviation sphere and need to acquire a connector part, be sure that you select the right part for your needs. In this article, we will discuss the different types of connectors and how you can select the right ones for you.

Almost all marine machinery today is incorporated with electronic automation systems from remote controlled operations to advanced pollution control methods. Electronic advancement has been seen predominantly in the two stroke main engines of a ship. In electronic marine engines, the electronic system serves to improve efficiency and performance of the main engine by providing better communication and control. With this said, no matter how technologically advanced a ship may become, marine engines will still consist of mechanical moving parts. Maintenance of these electronic and mechanical parts is the top priority of a ship engineer. In this article we will go over some important tips to ensure a smooth and safe trip on water.

Before deciding whether or not you need to repair any broken propeller for your boat, it is important to first establish if replacing would be a better option as opposed to doing propeller maintenance work. You can figure this out simply by asking yourself if the propeller kept your motor in the correct rpm range. Did the boat using the propeller accelerate well? Did you notice vibrations from the propellor when taking out the boat? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then a replacement might be better than trying to repair the propeller.

With the advent of lighter, higher RPM engines for marine vessels, engines have faced less ability to absorb vibrations that come with operation. With Marine engine mounts, boats can work to dampen the amount of vibrations caused by the engines, while also ensuring that the engine is secured to the vessel correctly. In this blog, we will discuss the importance of marine engine mounts for vessel engines.

The end of summer marks the close of boating season, so as the days shorten and the nights turn colder, owners of boating vessels take this grace period before the chill fully sets in to prepare their vessels for a long winter. Aside from just simply storing away their boats, there is more that needs to be administered in order to ensure the functionality of a boating vessel for future seasons. Doing less could leave your boat vulnerable to damage and costly repair work.

The motor is obviously one of the most important considerations in a boat’s design, determining the boat’s speed, maneuverability, center of balance, and maintenance needs. There are two choices in where a boat’s motor is placed, either an inboard configuration, or an outboard configuration. In this blog, we will break down the differences between the two designs, and their respective advantages and disadvantages.

Offshore boating offers adventure and opportunities that near-shore boating simply cannot. Fishing, travel, and the simple thrill of the open seas are all available, but offshore boating also carries its share of risks and challenges. The lack of visual reference points, long distance navigation, and the unpredictability of the open ocean all make offshore boating far more difficult. Therefore, having modern electronics onboard is critical for a safe voyage.
