Our qualified staff enables us to offer a comprehensive sales and installation service that includes system design, integration and installation, diagnostics, and repairs of existing equipment.
As distributors for leading brands, we are perfectly positioned to offer independent, expert advice and the competitive supply and installation of a wide range of marine electronics.
We have experience in all types of vessels and their systems, including motor, sailing, private and commercial boats. We are equipped to offer full service installation, integration and support for everything you need in marine electronics.
We have a skilled workforce to assist you with any service you may need to complement our marine electronics solutions, be it custom brackets or more complicated woodworking modifications.
A chartplotter is a must-have tool that will help you plan and navigate your boat safely, whether you are exploring rivers and coastal estuaries or crossing oceans. Chart plotters give you all the information you need to navigate confidently anywhere in the world with a clear understanding of local hazards, tides, and pilotage information.
Our team is perfectly qualified to offer advice on purchasing a new plotter from any of the leading manufacturers in the industry and will be happy to highlight and explain its safe and proper use, detailing any limitations, as well as provide installation and / or service and repair your plotter.
Although when sailing in a small day boat or dinghy, you could be used to assessing wind speed and direction, boat speed, and even water depth without the need for any electronic instruments, when it comes to navigation Most electronic instruments offer essential support for your senses.
From simple and independent depth information to complete packages providing combined wind, speed and depth information, interconnected with GPS and other navigation equipment, precise electronic instruments will aid with safe and efficient navigation and significantly enhance your entire navigation experience. We can recommend, source, supply, tune and service high performance instrument displays from all leading manufacturers to meet any navigation requirement.
For both recreational and commercial boaters, marine radars offer another layer of information, particularly when combined with other data, providing a complete overview and helping both collision avoidance and all-weather navigation. Although radar units years ago were only installed on larger vessels, today they are compact, energy efficient, and designed to fit on the smallest motor boats and sailing yachts.
We can supply, install, diagnose and repair radar systems from the leading manufacturers in the industry. For optimal performance, your radar system should be combined with an AIS and a chartplotter. Our dedicated team can also advise on this equipment and any other electronic interface issues.
ELECTRICAL REPAIR CHECKLIST
Do not cancel your trip or return unexpectedly to the port due to an electronic or electrical failure. Here is a checklist of steps you can take to perform your own emergency repairs.
1. Emergency supplies
In addition to a basic set of hand tools, you should also carry a crimp tool and terminal kit with a variety of crimp terminals for the most common wire sizes. Both are available from any standard or marine hardware store. An airtight sealant and a roll of electrical tape are essential. An electrical contact cleaner and marine anti-corrosive chemical spray (such as WD-40) can be used to help solve electrical contact and corrosion problems.
Keep a supply of fuses for each size used on board, and know where the fuse is for each instrument. Making an entry in the log book or writing the list on a laminated card makes sense.
2. Test equipment
The most practical troubleshooting tool you can have on board is an inexpensive volt-ohm meter. You need to know how to perform two basic electrical tests. A voltmeter can easily detect the presence or absence of voltage, which can quickly reveal the source of many common electrical problems. An ohmmeter is the perfect tool to find an open or broken wire or connection, or a short in a wire or a malfunctioning switch.
3. Built-in diagnostics
The instruments often come with their own built-in gauge diagnostic tools. Some computers monitor the voltage of the electrical system and can warn you if you have a serious voltage drop in the wiring. Error messages are excellent signals that tell you where to look to find the source of the problem. The satellite signal status page on your GPS monitors GPS performance and alerts you when a problem occurs that affects accuracy.
4. Your practical technical advisor
Most of each owner's manuals have a troubleshooting section that lists the most common equipment failures and what you can do to resolve them. These tips are explained in a non-technical way and can be very helpful in resolving the most likely faults based on the experience of the manufacturer. Don't have an owner's manual on board? You can usually download a free copy of current and previous discontinued models from the manufacturer's website.
5. Last resort
When all else fails and your GPS, chartplotter, or other microprocessor-based equipment disappears, the last thing you can do is perform a "clear", "restore", or "master" reset. This often cures microprocessor malfunctions, but will erase all of your paths and waypoints.
6. Pull the plug
As with a faulty computer, you can often get a misbehaving drive back up and running by turning the drive off and on. Sometimes you have to remove the power cord or turn off a circuit breaker and wait about 30 seconds before reconnecting power.
