A mechanical service at R & M Marine ensures that your engines are working at their optimum capacity – which keeps you on the water for longer - but while our technicians visually check over the boat and report any obvious structural issues, there is more that can be done to ensure that you and your passengers are safe on the water.
According to the Marine Safety Act 2010 (Vic), the minimum safety equipment requirements vary depending on the class of vessel being operated, and in which areas and types of waterways it’s operated.
R & M Marine can ensure that your vessel is compliant within its class and usual waters. All safety equipment worn or carried on board must be:
- easily accessible;
- kept in good working condition
- maintained or serviced in a way that ensures it can be operated in the way that it was intended; and
- serviced on or before the date specified by the manufacturer.
Although not a legal requirement for using your boat on the water (at the moment), a Boat Compliance Report covers all safety aspects relating to your vessel and includes the checking of electrical equipment, lights, pumps, emergency and safety equipment (including life jackets, flares, fire extinguishers etc), winch, covers and anything else associated with the safety of your boat and all passengers onboard.
If applicable, a Trailer Compliance Report is also completed. Our technicians check the structure of the trailer, along with all working components, including tyres, wheel bearings, rollers and supports, axle and springs, lights plus much more.
The cost for this peace of mind is $176 incl GST for the whole vessel (and trailer), and ensures that the boat meets your expectations when it comes to safety and seaworthiness.
