Welcome FAB-TECH "Silver Dolphin" Boats
We have searched for a while, to offer an independant boat line to our customers; that we are proud to stand behind. Silver Dolphin boats are made in Canada and based in NL. These Fully welded marine grade AL hulls, have been proven to stand the test of time. They have been in business for 30+ years and manufacture hulls from 14' open runabouts to 80+' barges. There are pre-designed packages in the common 14-16' open, runabout, dual console and bowriders with models up to 25' center console, cuddy cabin etc. All the hulls have a std list of included options, they also offer a large list of custom options to further customize the boat to your needs. Call us for more details! They are a perfect match with Tohatsu Outboards.
Outboard Motor Restoration
We have restored many outboard motors, specializing in vintage Mercury Mark series racing engines. You may already have a running engine and would like to clean it up or just have the powerhead looked over but some may opt to have the engine completely restored.
We offer the correct paint codes for the Mark series racing engines & many more. We use the correct primers & custom mixed base-clear coat paints to give a long lasting durable finish. If we run into a situation where the parts are not available, we can have them re-manufactured. An example, we had pistons re-manufactured using the latest technolgy by Wiseco to fit many years of vintage 50hp motors. Budgets do not always allow for remanufactured parts; we then search our large collection of used vintage parts. Whatever your restoration needs we can supply you with a beautiful motor that you will be proud to add to your collection.
Outboard Rebuilding and Re-Conditioning
Rebuilding an Outboard Motor is a detailed process; precise measurements, port chamfering & ring clearances to name a few, all of these determine the engines durabilty & performance following the rebuild. The equipment used to recondition a cylinder is important, the boring tooling must be straight and true & some engines require special cutters, these tool-bits are known as "off-set" cutters and are used on blind-hole cylinders. These cutters would be used on Mercury engines from 1950 to some current models. Cylinder honing tools are important; and most cylinders depending on the engines port layout require different hone stone configurations. The different grit of stones used & the final finish created on the cylinder walls determine the engines longevity, reliabilty & performance following the rebuild.
Outboard Lubrication & Performance
Outboard Motors use in most cases a full complement bearing arrangement some may be housed in cage and some are just loose needle bearings. But the point is, those bearings are in constant contact with the crankshaft. So your choices of oil are very important for trouble-free boating. Oil, Is it marketing? Is there a difference? Yes, there are major differences in outboard motor oils. It is the oil's base formula that is important. Klotz performance lubricants is always our first choice for engine oil as well as extreme pressure gear oil for the lower unit. Their base formula across all lines has remained the same throughout the years. We use Klotz "Super-Techniplate" in racing engines and "Techniplate" in our pleasure engines. We recommend it to everyone.
Outboard Motor Maintenance
Tune-ups should be a yearly item for your outboard motor. ignition, carburetion and compression are all that keep your outboard motor running strong, if any of these fail you are sitting on shore. ignition parts today are mostly solid-state devices, but they still connect together via wiring and have introduced new problems like wear points & heat. Yearly Lubrication of wear points and inspection of your ignition components wiring can help to prevent surprise problems.
