engine
checks / runs

Regular engine checks are important to ensure an efficient and trouble free voyage. Regular engine runs result in fewer breakdowns and engine part and battery longevity. 

PYM conducts regular visits to their clients vessel to conduct engine checks, battery checks and run the engines for half an hour or so. During these inspections our qualified team can report any issues of note and organise repairs if needed.

SLIP & ANTIFOUL ORGANISATION

Ideally a vessel should be pulled onto the slipway for hull cleaning and antifouling every 10 – 16 months.

How often this should happen depends on how regularly the vessel is used and what latitude / water temperature the vessel is usually moored at. Antifouling agents applied to the hull will prevent the fouling off barnacles, slime and marine organisms from settling.

A dirty hull can cause serious damage to the vessels underwater working gear, increase fuel consumption and reduce vessel speed.

PYM can organise a regular slip, hull clean, antifoul and post slip detail for all sized vessels up to 300 tonne at Gold Coast City Marina, working closely with the marina affiliates.
