Alpha One Diving Services
We service power, sail, inboard / outboard, electric, jet, hydrolift, docks, mooring systems, if it’s wet, we do it! Specialists in racing sailboats and keeping hull coatings with no copper clean. We can provide hand cleaning or cleaning with our gentle rotary brushing system. Using nylon bristles, it is as gentle as a tooth brush, would you use a 3M pad on your teeth? Hull cleaning is our specialty and every vessel is 100% clean after service.
Electrolysis can be a vessel owner’s worst nightmare. We have an eye for detail that will keep your running gear and metal components protected year round. Our divers carry a stock of zincs and understand how to properly extend the life of zincs and identify potential problems. We check the tightness and functionality of sacrificial anodes and ALWAYS clean off contact metal when replacing them. Choosing the wrong diving service can cost you thousands if they do not maintain your vessel properly.
Using a hydraulic underwater rotary polishing tool we can restore your propeller to it’s original specs of smoothness and efficiency. Think like new! This is ideal for customers looking to save gasoline, performance and increase speed. Great to do before a sea trial, haul out inspection, or a voyage.
No need to haul your vessel out to repair, replace, or adjust your propeller. We have the tools to safely remove and install props of all sizes. We also can help with thru hull replacements without the need to haul out.
Have you lost something overboard? We can recover it and in a worst case scenario we can help lift a distressed vessel using air bags.
We have the capability to film or photo your vessel or underwater infrastructure.
