PYC Cruise Committee Presents
Marine Mechanical Maintenance
By FREEPORT DIESEL & MARINE
Monday August 15, 2022 – 5:30 PM
The presentation will provide an overview of vessel systems, common issues found, engine and gear maintenance, preventative maintenance, and general upkeep.
Dominic Canonico and Tucker Johnston are Freeport natives. Graduates of Maine Maritime Academy with nearly 20 years of combined sea going experience amongst the Alaska catcher-processor fleet. In addition to a focus on medium and High-Speed diesel engines, as this is what powers the Alaskan Fleet, they service and repair all commercial and recreational diesel engines. Both have headed up many in-frame rebuilds throughout the years sailing as Chief Engineers. Dom with a prior education in machine tool processes, is a father of two boys and has hung up sailor life to enjoy his family.
Tucker is still active in the Bering Sea fleet and recently involved in the construction of a new factory trawler. Ownership of a local engine and machine shop has been a goal of each of theirs since high school. In 2019 the timing was right for them to combine efforts and purchase “Freeport Manufacturing Company” and transform it into Freeport Diesel & Marine. Services offered include: Full Spectrum Mechanical Services, Diesel Engine Rebuilds, Reversing Gear Rebuilds, Hydraulics, Refrigeration, Welding/Fabrication, and Precision Machining.
Space is limited and sign up will be a first come, first served basis.
There is a $10 per attendee fee for this event.
