A USED BOAT!
We use the FLIR E76 which is the latest infrared thermal camera on the market. Thermal imaging can detect infrared variations in temperature that cannot be detected by the human eye.
It is non-invasive and great for preventative maintenance of mechanical parts before major frictional damage is done.
Hull moisture intrusion, blisters, cracks, layup voids, delamination, previous repairs, as well as overheating engines, exhaust leaks, mechanical friction problems, and electrical issues can be revealed with a FLIR thermal camera.
A diagnostic evaluation is highly recommended to have full insight into the vessel and engine condition.
The computerized engine diagnostics equipment connects to the Electronic Control Module (ECM) of outboard and inboard, gas and diesel engines, and retrieves all engine data which provides valuable information regarding the engine history.
Engine diagnostics can discover hidden issues that would save boat owners significiant repair costs and downtime.
An oil analysis can help determine any abnormal metal wear of pistons, rings, and cylinders and if contaminants like fuel, coolant, raw water, or dirt are present that shorten the life of engines, transmissions, and generators.
This information can reveal developing problems, a blown head gasket, or a leaking exhaust manifold.
A small oil sample will be drawn into a clean container, which is sealed and shipped to a laboratory for analysis.
A sea trial is conducted to determine if the vessel performs well on the water.
A basic engine, steering, throttle, and shift control inspection ensures that it performs as expected.
The engine is observed for cruising RPMs and wide-open throttle RPMs per the engine manufacturer specifications.
If the engine is not performing properly or a problem is detected, a repair recommendation can be provided which can assist in price negotiations.
