Ever worried about your moored boat ? But you are miles away ?
You are not alone nearly all moored boat owners fret about their boats at times.
Did i turn the battery charger on ?
did I tie her up properly ?
And things do go wrong from time to time :
Loss of shore power leading to flat batteries
It could be a leak thats undetected and getting worse.
This leads to the scenario referred to as a “Zombie Boat”
Most incidents are a combination of two things going wrong such as having a leak that the bilge pump taking care of gets worse resulting in more bilge pump activations
Alerts via SMS that can be provided :
- Bilge pump operation – 69% of boats that sink do so on their moorings or marina pens according to an industry survey conducted by the American Boating Association. Increased frequency of bilge pump operation is the first sign of trouble and alerts you to a leak and is the best indicator of an impeding serious problem.
- Shore power failure – One of the most common problems in Marinas, this will save you from flat batteries and a lost day on the water as well as a freezer of rotten bait or a fridge of spoiled food.
- Intruder alerts – reed switches and passive infrared motion detectors with remote on/off switch will send you an SMS if there is a break in or people climbing onto your boat.
- Broken from mooring or theft – set a range ring around your boat departure from the ring will send you an SMS.
