Dana Point Shipyard Expands to Meet the Changing Industry Marina Of the Year

Dana Point Shipyard in Dana Point, California, has been a family owned business since it started repairing and cleaning boats in 1967. In the beginning, the business morphed with the industry and opportunities. Nearly 50 years later, the family is still the same, and the facility and the industry is changing again. The boatyard completed major renovations earlier this year, preparing it for the different class of vessels, which have already begun to arrive for repairs at the boatyard.

Oceanside Harbor Operates First of its Kind Bilge Pump

Common sense dictates that bilge water containing things such as oil, gasoline, cleaning solvents and hydraulic fluid is not good for the environment and can contaminate the waters it enters. So how do marinas and their boaters dispose of contaminated bilge water? Other than absorbent pads and elbow grease, not too many options were available until recently. Keco Pump and Equipment in collaboration with a European company has developed a new bilge pumpout system that not only removes contaminants from bilge water but does so with no filters and little to no equipment maintenance. This impressive new technology is now operational at Oceanside Harbor in California and is available free to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Freshwater Bottom Paint

Sea Hawk introduced VMG Hard & Fast Racing Finish, a new bottom coat geared specifically for freshwater vessels. Enhanced with PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene), VMG Hard & Fast Racing Finish exhibits one of the lowest coefficients of friction while its copper-free formulation ensures colors stay vivid and true over time. Compatibility with older freshwater bottom coatings enables the application VMG directly over Interlux VC17 and Pettit SR-21 without having to strip hulls. The hull coating reduces drag to maximize vessel velocity and provides a layer of protection. Packaged in quarts with an alloy powder additive, Sea Hawk said VMG goes on easily and dries quickly.

Marine Forklift

Marine Travelift Inc. introduced its new M2000 marine forklift, featuring hydrostatic drive, which enables the operator to have precise and variable control in forward and reverse. The forward-reverse drive selection and speed control is located at the operator’s foot.

The M2000 is available with an upgraded wireless remote for the mast control along with an impressive array of standard features and options, all of which include the latest in marine forklift technology. Marine Travelift also offers larger capacity marine forklifts, which are currently in operation at facilities around the country.
