Just like your car, all mechanical aspects of your boat require regular and preventative maintenance to ensure peak performance. Negligence over the winter months is the most common cause of costly and inconvenient breakdowns during peak boating season.
Regular inspections of your vessel’s key components and checking of fluid levels and batteries as often as weekly or fortnightly are a must when it comes to proactively maintaining your vessel. Ensuring that the steering and throttles are working sufficiently, checking fuel and fluid levels and bilge pumps prior to using your vessel will avoid frustrating delays when heading out on the water for the weekend.
Manufacturer’s recommendation for servicing is annual or every 100 hours, whichever occurs first. Cooling systems require servicing every 5 years. This includes heat exchanges, intercoolers, engine oil coolers and gearbox oil coolers. Risers and manifolds are a replacement interim of 3-4 years regardless of engine hours.
Therefore, we urge customers to maintain a regular servicing schedule during the winter months. This gives ample time to inspect, repair or replace any necessary components prior to the summer peak season allowing a prompt and efficient turnaround.

Rainman Watermakers are a compact and portable solution designed to generate a fresh water supply from salt or brackish water. Our system consists of a Pressure Supply Unit (PSU) which pressurizes the source water, and a Reverse Osmosis Unit, which desalinates the water with a membrane, removing impurities and creating fresh potable water. The optional Rainman flow gauge allows our system to be used in brackish or fresh water applications.

We use only top quality components from the best manufacturers: Honda, DOW FILMTEC, General Pump, Jabsco. Our filters, membranes and replacement parts are non-proprietary for ease of service worldwide.
