Boat Watch

This program has become very popular with our “out of town” clients as well as locals and has increasingly become a year round option for those who want an extra pair of eyes on their boat, especially in the “off season”.

Roche Harbor Marine offers monthly Boat Watch Service Programs:

You may choose from our Standard, Deluxe Boat Watch Service or customize one of your own at our hourly rate.

Standard Boat Watch Program Weekly Checks

~ General exterior check
~ Fenders & dock lines
~ Shore power

Standard Boat Watch Program Monthly Checks

~ General interior check*
~ Run engine(s) & generator(s)** – (Momentarily to circulate oil(s))
~ Check bilges & bilge pump(s) operation

*Recommend ~
1.  Removing items from fridge & freezer
2. Leaving inverters on “charge only” (not “invert”)
3. Leave extra dock lines accessible for urgent conditions
 

 ** Running engines and generators periodically is recommended for lubrication purposes.  Due to the design of (most) marine engine exhaust systems, salt air circulates around valves and cylinders.  Running the engines keeps rust and corrosion from building up in those areas.

~ Additional checks available upon request at an additional charge, i.e. run water maker, diesel heater, check fluids , batteries, engine service.

STANDARD BOAT WATCH PRICE ~~ $2.00/per foot, per month (charged by contracted period, up to one year) – Watch updated are forwarded on a monthly basis via email noting as is well and/or issues found.
