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.

It can operate in environments ranging from -40°F (-40°C) to +302°F (150°C). A high-strength protective guard cage helps prevent accidental glass breakage.

Acrylic Polymer Coating

Acryfin® Coatings is an acrylic polymer coating that removes the need for replacement or regular staining or painting, while extending the life of decks, docks and concrete. Distributed by Atlantic Distributors LLC of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, Acryfin is a VOC free, green certified product that creates a durable, non-skid, splinter free surface. The coating is expertly applied and takes about eight hours to dry. It comes with a 10-year warranty. Acryfin differs from other deck coatings because it is developed with more polymers, resin and fluorine. In addition, the Primer used in applications bonds to the substrate as well as providing a surface on which the product can adhere.

Marine Forklift

Marine Travelift has expanded its Hydro M Drive marine forklift line to now offer increased capacity and wheel base options. The forklifts now have capacities of 52,000 pounds and larger, while providing a shorter wheel base option for optimal maneuverability. The engine compartment has also been redesigned to allow for easy access. The company said the easy-access engine compartment along with the innovative hydrostatic drive deliver continued productivity, and improved mobility and maneuverability. The innovations also lower maintenance costs and increase precision and efficiency of the Hydro M Drive line.
