We now offer a professional installation service for all marine products. An experienced, fully trained engineer will come to your boat and install and test your product/s for you. This service is charged at a competitive hourly rate and is currently only available in the Portsmouth, River Hamble and Southampton area. If you wish to use this service, please use the Contact Us link on the website.
We love our Customer’s boats and where appropriate and available we use the following products:
Cable – “Marine Grade Tinned Copper Cable“ – this is the best (and most expensive!!) and we normally use it for critical cables such as main 12v supply, wind generator and solar panel supplies etc.
“Thin Wall Cable“ – this is used in those critical areas such as mast wiring and in the bilge where space is at a premium or where the wiring is likely to get wet.
Both the above cables are more resistant to moisture, abrasion, acid, diesel fuel and oil than conventional pvc insulated cable and are rated for use up to 105°C.
Hardware – Stainless Steel screws, nuts and washers etc. Ordinary steel rusts very quickly and brass is too soft for most applications.
Specialist systems –
Dual battery systems – our speciality is installing those more complicated systems such as charging 2 x batteries from 1 x alternator. Do your nav. instruments and GPS go off or reset whenever you start your engine/s? Does one of your batteries never seem to charge properly? Ask us – we can install a cost-effective solution for your boat using a combination of Voltage Sensitive Relays, diode split charge regulators, multi-output battery chargers etc.
Shore Power Connection – We were the first Marine Electrical Company in the area that also had a NAPIT Approved Electrical Contractor on the staff. We can install your Shore-Power system, test it and issue a full Electrical Certificate.
