Why dry dock your boat?

Any boat owner who’s experienced the misfortune of scraping pesky barnacles off their hull will attest that storing your vessel in open water is never a good idea. While your watercraft may be designed to handle the worst of the ocean, deterioration and aquatic build-up comes quickly when your vessel doesn’t have a break from the unrelenting saltwater environment.

Clean as a whistle

After recently visiting the gorgeous shores of Port Coogee,  we wanted to share a story on how a FAB Dock protected a beautiful Cobalt R5 boat.  The owner of this boat had only been able to take his stunning Cobalt out twice in the last 16 months but thank fully due to being protected by our world class FAB Dock the hull came out looking like new.  The photo shows what the hull looks like after 16 months of being in a FAB Dock with minimal use.  No matter how often you use your boat the FAB Dock will protect your prized possession all year round.

Trip to North Queensland

I have just returned from a trip through North Queensland upgrading some of our earlier customers to our new pumping and electrical system and was enthused to hear the response from every one of them. A couple are adamant that they have already paid for their FAB Dock with the maintenance and fuel savings that they have enjoyed over the past few years and, on top of that, their boats are in perfect condition, as compared with a number of their neighbours who haven’t yet seen the light and bought themselves a FAB Dock.

Over the next few months we plan on getting around to see all our customers to make sure they have the latest FAB Dock equipment to keep their investment in their dry docking system at the forefront of technology.
