BOATYARD OPERATIONS 29 Service at Endeavour Quay E

ndeavour Quay in Gosport on the South Coast of England is pleased to announce that Desty Marine will be

increasing its service provision from the boatyard with immediate effect. Following three years utilising the 180 tonne boat lift and 40 metre boat sheds for large vessel re-sprays, Desty will now operate a wider range of services on a full-time basis.

Desty Marine is increasingly

working with premium UK power boat and sailing yacht manufacturers, including Sunseeker, Princess and Oyster. A Portsmouth Harbour-based

facility suits the business growth plan and enables the boat repair and paint contractors to provide an enhanced service to these important clients. With approximately 5,000

leisure boats on Portsmouth Harbour, there are many business opportunities available and Desty

Marine is one of the largest boat repair and marine paint contractors in the harbour itself. The successful repair and refit business will also look to meet its employment and skill needs from local resources as staffing requirements continue to expand. “Endeavour Quay has provided us with a great service since the start of our partnership,” said Neil Desty. “The equipment for handling large boats such as the 180 tonne lift and deep water enable us to work on large paint projects that are also very complex. The boat sheds provide the perfect space for the high levels of labour and expensive materials required as the working environment is critical to provide the best result for our clients and we need to be sure we have an expert team handling the boats in and out of the sheds at all times.” Desty Marine

Innovative bilge pump system

The innovative Bilge Pro from Energy Solutions Ltd is a bilge pump system specifically designed to provide a unique solution to boat builders looking to achieve significant reductions in labour costs and installation times, whilst maintaining exceptional functionality and reliability. Bilge Pro has undergone a stringent testing process to meet craft standards ABYC, ISO 8849 and 15083, making it suitable for worldwide use. Traditional bilge pump systems use

multiple wired connections, creating a complex installation process using cables that can become prone to water ingress over time. In contrast, Bilge Pro features an effective ‘plug and play’ system using four tool-less pluggable connections for reliability, speed and simplicity. This system ensures a de-skilled process that can reduce installation time by as much as one hour per pump. Operated by a simple switch, Bilge

Pro can be turned on and off both manually and remotely. It features mid and high-level water sensors that will

automatically run the pump whilst switching on a pump running indicator light. For additional security, a warning light and audible alarm will be turned on when the high level water sensor is reached. A low-level sensor will automatically switch off the pump when the water has cleared. The Bilge Pro sensors can also determine the difference between water and other fluids, reducing the risk of illegal overboard discharge, which can cause environmental damage. Bilge Pro also helps to increase

the longevity of a bilge pump with its automatic periodic pump exercise. It is part of a system that allows

customers to select all or none of the additional options depending on their specific requirements. The unit works with additional elements, including the Bilge Pro Carling Switch, Bilge Pro Power Cable, Bilge Pro Control Cable and the Bilge Pro Control Panel. Energy Solutions Ltd

Upgraded engine monitoring unit

The award-winning engine monitoring unit (EMU-1) from Actisense has been upgraded with advanced new firmware. The device, which acts as a specialised Analogue to NMEA 2000® Interface, is designed to operate specifically with engines on watercraft and now offers greater flexibility by allowing monitoring of

dual engines or multiple tanks – a feature requested by Actisense users. Alternatively, the EMU-1 can

be used to monitor fluid levels in up to six tanks at any one time. The addition of a configurable ‘instance’ for each tank allows the user to identify what tank the data is coming from, making the

monitoring of fluid levels easier than before. The EMU-1 was designed to

simplify the conversion of analogue engine parameters (of temperature, pressure, Tach/rpm, etc.) into the corresponding NMEA 2000® engine Parameter Group Numbers. The EMU-1 can handle six gauge parameter inputs (these can be

instead of the gauge or in parallel with the gauge), four alarm inputs, two Tach inputs and two additional auxiliary inputs, which are flexible to suit each installation. In addition, the device is backwards- compatible with older engines. Actisense
