When metal is submerged into a reactive solution like saltwater, an electrical current is created, called electrolysis. The metal reacts with the saltwater, creating a perfect environment for galvanic corrosion to occur. Zinc anodes are used to cover parts of the hull and running gear that remain underwater and need extra protection. Our licensed divers will go below the surface to replace your zincs with newer sets.
Is your boat wrecked, taking on water, or laying at the bottom of St. Johns River? We can help. Regardless of how you ended up in your situation, DS Diving has all the right tools. We help with afloat salvage, offshore salvage, harbor salvage, wreck removal, and more. If your vessel is unsalvageable, we offer cargo and equipment salvage services as well. Our licensed drivers will go below the surface to salvage your precious cargo or expensive equipment.
Has your dock or boat had a bit of bad luck lately? Our licensed divers go below the surface, examining and accessing the damage to your vessel and your pilings. Before purchasing such a large investment, especially when they are coupled with underwater structures, it is important to survey everything. When you go to buy a new boat, house with a dock or pier, or even an elevated waterfront house, we help give you peace of mind.
When you wet-store a vessel in bodies of water; different bacteria, marine life, barnacles and algal slime are introduced to your hull and running gear. These organisms begin attaching themselves to bottom of your boat. Once attached, these organisms affect both the performance and appearance of your boat. When storing your boat in water it becomes imperative to carry out regular hull maintenance.
Aquatic growth, marine organisms and nature can be a menace to your dock, pier or elevated house pilings. Routine maintenance or preventative measures extend the life of your dock pilings by 10+ years. Lack of maintenance, natural disasters or unfortunate mishaps can lead to full restoration! DS Diving is in the business of protecting your pilings. DS Diving will help breathe life back into your dock.
