B&G’s Experienced Marine Repair Team Performs Fast Turnaround

Having a team with a broad range of skills means we were able turnaround Oil Nut Bay’s Roamer, which needed a substantial overhaul, in less than a week.

This staple of life up in North Sound came to us for a routine list of services. Despite finding other additional work, we were able to deliver this boat back on time for returned service in Oil Nut Bay.  From welding repairs and fabrication of a new shaft, paint and gel coat, electrical works and a major engine service, the team at B&G got in, and turned the boat around.

Work included:

  • metal fabrication work on the railings and awning frame;
  • coordinating Doyle Sails making a new fabric awning top;
  • machining of new prop shaft and rudder bushings;
  • new exhaust system and engine mounts;
  • new battery management system to include emergency battery parallel and battery isolation;
  • new docking lights;
  • new running lights;
  • paint and gelcoat work;
  • fabrication and installation of oversized backing plates for mooring cleats (vessel is used as a passenger launch so cleats see a lot of service);
  • fabrication of new anchor and steaming light mount;
  • new VHF Antenna and cabling; resealing of engine instrument panel;
  • bottom paint and prop one coating;
  • new zinc anodes;
  • service to all thru hulls;
  • cleaning and repairs to cockpit drain system;
  • major engine service to include transmission repairs, heat exchanger service, new transmission cooler, new exhaust elbow;
  • engine alignment;
  • application of name, port of call and ONB decals;
  • new fire suppression system

The boat was hauled on Monday lunch time and all the work was completed by close-of-play Friday.
