What Keeps the Service Business Running Efficiently

Finding ways to minimize downtime in any business can help it be more productive. For boatyards, each billable hour is precious and, if used the most efficiently, will reap the biggest benefits for the company. In the end, working smartly usually means more dollars for the bottom line. But it can also add to company loyalty and integrity and help identify and address challenges. A well-oiled boatyard machine has many moving parts. MDA spoke with a few top boatyards about how those different parts work together, what’s most important in keeping the operation running smoothly, and where the challenges lie.

Navajo Lake Marina Creates New Destinations in New Mexico

Four years ago, Jarrett Johnson bought his first marina and after a major renovation project this past winter, he has created a destination for families and the next generation of boat owners. Navajo Lake Marina is located in what is often called the Pine Site of Navajo Lake State Park, about 45 miles northeast of Farmington, New Mexico, and 50 miles southeast of Durango, Colorado. The marina business is privately owned, but the park’s land and water area are owned by the Bureau of Reclamation, except for 70 acres along the San Juan River that is owned by New Mexico State Parks.

New England Boatworks Achieves Clean Marina Certification

New England Boatworks (NEB) in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, received a Clean Marina designation in May. This designation was a significant achievement because of the scope of work and activities at the facility. Now leading the way in its state, the marina proved that even with a wide range of marina, yard and manufacturing activities happening along the waterfront, proper planning and attention can gain Clean Marina status.

Aluma Hawk

Sea Hawk Paints has added new colors to its line of Aluma Hawk paints for aluminum boats. Jon Boat Blue and Jon Boat Tan colors join the existing line of Jon Boat Green, Aluminum Gray and Black. Aluma Hawk paint can be used as a top coat or primer for aluminum boats including house boats, pontoon boats, jon boats and canoes, and are applied using a brush, roller or spray. The new colors are part of the Aluma Hawk AH7000 Series, which are quick-dry, high-solids, corrosion-inhibiting coatings designed for use on aluminum boats either above or below the waterline. The paints can be used in either saltwater or fresh water applications.

AerationPlus

Medora Corporation has introduced the AerationPlus circulator to help reduce algae in marinas, around docks and in lakes and ponds. The company’s large scale circulator has been used in over 400 large lakes, but this new smaller version can target specific problem areas covering areas up to three acres. While the circulator itself is all underwater, no electricity or moving parts are in the water making it safe to use in swimming and boating areas. It comes with an ultra-quiet air unit and can also be powered by solar power upon request.

SwiftShield

Sunstream® Boat Lifts has launched two new products: the SwiftShield™ Universal Automatic Boat Cover (ABC-U) and the SwiftShield™ Piling Automatic Boat Cover (ABC-P). Operated with a patented keychain remote, the ABC-U and ABC-P actuate an arm with hydraulics and a spring-loaded roller that automatically deploy a custom-fitted cover over the boat. The boat cover mechanism mounts to the frame of most boatlifts, either new or previously installed, and has a reduced height allowing for use under covered docks. The covers are custom made using measurements of the boat provided directly to Sunstream by the customer. These two new configurations join the SwiftShield Automatic Boat Cover for the Sunstream SunLift line of products.

Pettit Black Widow

Pettit Marine Paint has released its highest-performance racing finish available, Pettit Paint Black Widow. Providing multi-season protection, the dual-biocide paint can be applied by roller, brush or spray on any racing boat that would benefit from the paint’s four slickening agents: Molybdenum Disulfide, Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), Graphite and Silicon. These lubricants reduce drag allowing for greater speed and less fuel consumption, and are also easy to clean.
