Spring Commissioning

Spring prep is necessary...

Spring is a snap away, and with spring just outside the cabin door comes time to think about commissioning the boat for the summer season. Early spring is time to think about when you want your boat 100% ready-to-go. If you completely prepare your boat in the early spring and address the issues from last season, I promise you’ll have a better summer on the water. Spring preparation is the Key! Often boaters plan on the projects for their vessels just before spring launch and more often run short on time. The project plan then becomes one that will be pushed off until the summer and it never gets done. So let’s plan on doing it NOW rather than later so we may relax and enjoy a fantastic 2016 season.

FIRST CAPTAINS is ready to go! We’re ready to lend you a hand or just get the job done for you. Spring commissioning, NO PROBLEM! Once shown, it’s pretty simple. We’ll assist and instruct in all facets of spring preparation. We’ll prepare: bottoms and paint, do blister repair, barrier coat, fiberglass and gelcoat repair. We’ll change oils, filters, lubricate components and change zincs. As certified divers, we offer all underwater services such as: cleaning fouled bottoms, zinc and propeller replacement. In addition, we do maintenance, repairs and service all engines (gas and diesel), inboards, inboard/outboards, stern drives, generators, plumbing, sanitation, and all your electrical work for both 110/12 volt systems. We also install all the latest electronics and network systems. Perhaps you’re thinking about a new vinyl Teak and Holly sole floor throughout the boat. How about replacing the old countertops with new Corian tops to update the look of your boat? Whatever the task is … NO PROBLEM! FIRST CAPTAINS is standing by, ready to assist or just do the job.

Be sure to complete the “SPRING PREP – TIME RESERVATION FORM”, below, for you to reserve priority time (early scheduling) to get your work done. I would suggest that you fill the form out and include an APPROXIMATE time in the month you may want to get the boat ready. This of course is tentative time and does not obligate you to use our services. However, this form allows me to know the probability of activity during this time and appropriately block your time. YOUR TENTATIVE TIME BECOMES MY PRIORITY TIME FOR YOU! You’re on the schedule. In other words, customers calling in for Spring services will be worked in and around your reserved time. FIRST CAPTAINS will be calling you weeks before your tentative time to confirm services, dates, time and location.
