How to Track Engines, Tenders, and More

A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for. -- William Shedd

We, the people of the marina industry, love our boats and love the water. However, to stay on the water, we must care for our boats and all the parts that keep them afloat. Regular maintenance is crucial. Engine service is usually required annually or by the hours of operation and may include an oil and oil filter change, fuel filter change, check of valve clearance, inspection or replacement of the water pump impeller, and possibly a list of additional items and services.

Tracking vital engine information is most helpful to service departments. The engine make, model, hours, and serial numbers are needed for proper service and maintenance.

How can your staff track vessel components?

When working with a customer, the marina and service shop team needs to know:

· Vessel Name

· Vessel Details

· Insurance

· Customer

· Engine details, including the number of engines, make and model of each engine, engine hours, and more.

MARINAGO Office cloud-based solution provides you the ability to track crucial information for each vessel with the use of "Components." Components consist of a dynamic list of information offering the ability to record details of any of the following components for any reason.

· Engines

· Generators

· Tenders or Dinghies

· Electronics

· Anything else you wish to track related to a vessel

Since components are flexible and dynamic, they adhere to most vessel environments. If a vessel is a simple single-engine boat, you can easily track the engine details with a single component record. However, dealing with a modern mega-center console with potentially five or six engines can also be easily handled with the inclusion of a component record for each engine. A simple solution for a complex world!

"Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats." ― Kenneth Grahame
