Sanitation is a large area of concern for most boat owners today as all the local marine parks are now no-dumping zones. Up-grading of waste treatment systems and holding tanks are essential.

Our staff are regularly sent for training with the various dealers of equipment we install and maintain, such as Northern Lights for generators, Webasto heating systems, Detroit Diesel and Allison for the computerization specialties involved with engines, HRO water makers. Our journeymen have gone through the full apprenticeship program with further training on our specific product lines. Some of our staff have been trained at Quadrant Marine Institute, a post secondary institution initiated by the marine industry on Vancouver Island, which specializes in training workers for the marine industry.
