Florida Boat Maintenance Company Expanding Operations

September 24, 1999

Boatside Services, Inc., a Ft. Lauderdale-based company, is expanding its boat-to-boat maintenance operations. A new boat, delivered in August, has a total fluid capacity of 1,260 gal. This boat reflects the progress of the technology of the two-year-old company handling more than triple the capacity of the prototype designs. The company offers routine maintenance operations - such as oil changes - in a boat-to-boat service format. The heart of the company's operations is a 34 ft. aluminum tanker, capable of carrying nearly 1,260 gal. of fluids. This includes fresh oil and an equal amount of waste oil. The boat also carries bilge fluids collected from yachts that have had problems such as leaking fuel lines, broken turbochargers, etc. When these problems cause fluids to enter the bilge area, the law now requires them to be properly disposed of. Boatside Services provides an indemnification to the boater insuring the fluids are disposed of by recycling or as fuel for power plants. The vessel is completely self-contained and supported to enable seamless, no-hassle work for private and commercial vessels.
