¿Por qué materiales compuestos?

Los composites o resinas compuestas son materiales sintéticos que están mezclados heterogéneamente y que forman un compuesto, como su nombre indica. Están compuestos por moléculas de elementos variados. Estos componentes pueden ser de dos tipos: los de cohesión y los de refuerzo. Los componentes de cohesión envuelven y unen los componentes de refuerzo (o simplemente refuerzos) manteniendo la rigidez y la posición de éstos. Los refuerzos confieren unas propiedades físicas al conjunto tal que mejoran las propiedades de cohesión y rigidez. Así, esta combinación de materiales le da al compuesto unas propiedades mecánicas notablemente superiores a las de las materias primas de las que procede. Tales moléculas suelen formar estructuras muy resistentes y livianas; por este motivo se utilizan desde mediados del siglo XX en los más variados campos.

Los materiales compuestos son usados en un amplio rango en la industria naval, aeronáutica, astro y cosmonáutica, ingeniería civil, artículos de campismo, etc, así como también para fabricación de prótesis muy utilizada en equipamiento para distintos deportes (p.e.: atletismo paraolímpico).

INTERIOR ENVARCACION Materiales Compuestos           Materiales Compuestos

Una reparación tiene el objetivo de recuperar una estructura dañada hasta un nivel aceptable en términos de dureza, durabilidad, rigidez y rendimiento de la pieza. Idealmente una buena reparación tendría que devolverle a la pieza la apariencia y propiedades propias de la misma en su estado original.

La evaluación y estudio de los daños antes de realizar una reparación, requiere la selección de un análisis y criterio de reparación, la elección de materiales adecuados, los procesos que se realizarán, especificando el área y tamaño de la reparación, y un equipo profesional para su manipulado.

Materiales Compuestos Composite

La mayoría de las reparaciones son generalmente mediante la utilización de parches. Debido a la utilización de estos materiales, comenzaron a aparecer daños propios de los mismos como de laminaciones y micro cracking, además de problemas debidos a la baja resistencia al impacto, ingreso de liquido y erosión de las estructuras sándwich. Las reparaciones que se llevan a cabo deben ser realizadas de acuerdo a lo indicado en el manual de reparaciones si lo hubiese. Las reparaciones de las piezas debido al ingreso de líquido pueden variar dependiendo del líquido.

El agua generalmente tiende a crear daños en las piezas cuando estas son curadas, a menos que se le quite toda la humedad a esta. La mayoría de los materiales utilizados para la reparación generalmente curan a temperaturas superiores a las del punto de ebullición del agua, lo que puede causar una desunión entre la cara y el núcleo, donde se encuentra atrapada el agua. Es por esta razón que se secan los núcleos de la estructura sándwich antes de comenzar a realizar la reparación.

GUIDE TO RENT-A-BOAT OR CHARTER FOR THE FIRST TIME

GET TO KNOW HOW, WHERE AND TO WHOM

 
 
The yacht charter or boat hire, whether a sailing yacht, a motor boat, or a megayacht can be a tricky business, if we haven't done it before. However, it is seamless if we trust someone to provide us with the best options to satisfy our needs. If we don't have that help, the process can be complicated to the point of deciding not to pursue adventure.
 
Depending on the purpose of the charter or boat hire: private sailing event (holidays, celebrations stag / hen parties, weddings, birthdays, etc.); or company event (Maritime Marketing, on board conventions, business incentives, training, team building, gift trips to our best employees, customers, etc..) - it is essential to select the type of boat conscientiously.

Mar Infinito presents you some recommendations to consider when hiring a charter, decision to decision:
 
 
Decision 1.- Navigation Area and Base Port for the charter
 
In Spain you can hire leasure boats in most of the Peninsula or Mainland, in the Balearic and Canary Islands, being the most popular the Balearic Islands (Ibiza, Formentera and Mallorca), Valencia, Canary Islands and Catalonia. There are areas where you can sail throughout the year, and other areas only during the summer, and areas where you need to look more carefully at the weather reports. For instance, the Canary Islands are good to navigate most of the year, and in Denia (Alicante), Marbella (Málaga) and Palma de Mallorca, whose bay is well protected from the predominant winds. In Cadiz there is problem with the Eastern Winds that cannot really be predicted, but that can offer you some of the best sailing waters and coasts. Menorca is an amazing place, but the winds are also sometimes to strong, so it is well worth picking the right season with the help of wheather historicals. The weather in Spain is quite regular, and there are sources to check the weather you can do on a site, a specific week of the year.
 
There are many aspects to take into account when deciding on the base port of the charter, such as where the crew come from, and what they must do to reach the area where you want to navigate. It is much easier, faster and cheaper approach the place of destination by land than by sea. The most practical is to choose a homeport that is as close to the point where we want to navigate as possible. For example, if we navigate one day in Cabrera, it is in your interest to rent the boat in Mallorca.
 
However, sometimes it may be more interesting to rent the boat further away, and take time to navigate to the destination area. For example, if we are 5 people that want to sail in Ibiza, and we reside in Madrid, we have to calculate what it costs us to get to Ibiza, and then the costs of renting the boat. Assuming the boat rental price is similar, it may be more interesting to rent the boat in Denia, which is 45 nautical miles from the island. That way, exchanginh 5 airline tickets for a road trip of 4 hours, the sailing vacations can become much cheaper. Another example, may be a group of people from Barcelona that want to sail in Menorca, where there are many charter boats. An interesting option may be to rent the yacht in Barcelona and navigate to Menorca. The drawback of these alternatives, is the time spent sailing from the home port to the destination.

Decision 2.- To Charter or Rent a complete boat or to Rent a Place on a boat
 
The decision to rent a sailing boat or a motor yacht depends on the number of people who want to share the trip, the time available, the taste for speed or quietness, and of course, the budget. The most economically efficient option is to organize a group as large as the navigating and sleeping capacity of the boat. The maximum number of nagivating places in the charter boats is usually 12 including the skipper. This is the number you should remember for day charter. If you are planning on sleeping on board, you should look at the nuber of berths, not forgetting to reserve a place for the skipper. Sailing boats normally have a convertible sofa in the salon that becomes a double berth seemlessly.
 
If you don't manage to form a large enough group, there are interesting alternatives. There are a few boats offering already planned trips. This option is a nice way to meet new people, sea and sailing lovers, with whom you will probably share some of your life philosophy.

Decision 3.- When to rent a boat and for how long

This decision may be given by your availability of time, and when you can take the holidays. However, it is worth knowing the savings or overpayments that can take place depending on the season we choose to rent the boat. If you have the possibility to move the holidays, that can be the best idea.
 
In general, charter companies offer different prices for the same boat, depending on the season. Normally there are three seasons: the High Season takes place in August, including July in some cases, and most companies include Easter (although normally is considered Mid Season). Mid Season is June and September (and July if it is not High), and the Low Season encompasses the rest of the year. In areas where the weather allows, firms divide the Mid Season into Mid Low Season and Mid High Season. Some companies have up to 9 different seasons ... In many cases the price you pay in high season, is almost twice as much as what you would pay in Low Season.
 
There is a coincidence between the companies regarding charter hire periods. Boats can be rented for single days and complete weeks, although some companies offer Weekend packages, and rent by Half Days, and even Hourly.
 
Generally, Charter Weeks are counted from Saturday to Saturday, although there are exceptions. Embarks take place on a Saturday afternoon and disembark the following Saturday morning, so that the charter company has time to prepare the boat for the next customers. Sometimes it is possible to embark on a Friday night, if the boat has not been rented the week before, but this is a courtesy that can not be imposed.
 
The Day Charter usually lasts around 8 hours (from 11:00 to 19:00 approximately) and the half day is usually takes 4 or 5 hours. The day rental option does not normally include the overnight aboard. It is important to note that  it is very complicated to rent boats for individual days in high season. Charter companies reserve their boats for full week rentals. The exceptions are those boats specifically dedicated to Day Charter. You will also find Last Minute offers launched by companies that have had a last minute cancellation on a week charter, and have the boat available to rent during the days of that week.
 
To choose well in advance when and where you want to navigate is very important, since the number of rental boats is limited. The charter industry in Spain earns its living basically out of international tourism, especially from northern Europe. The Nordics are characterized by hiring their vacations well in advance. Planning your nautical holidays with time is will qualify you for better yachts and conditions.

Decision 4.- Sailing Yacht or Motor Yacht

The type of vessel will greatly depend on your preferences in the way of enjoying the sea and you have basic holidays. If you like the speed in the water, or what you want is to use the time to the fullest, visiting many beaches, coves and places, and do not want to spend much time in the journey, your option is to rent a motor boat. If what you want is to enjoy smooth sailing, enjoying the ride, unhurried, learning to sail, enjoying the sport, the best option is to rent a sailboat. There are more rental sailboats than motor yachts in the charter market.
 
The cost of renting a sailing boat, will almost always be lower than the price of renting a Motorboat. First of all, at each and every boat lenght, motor boats are more expensive to purchase than sailing yachts, so its rental price has to be higher to amortize the value. In this line, the deposit is also higher for a motor boat to a sailboat. In second place, the motor boat engines consume more fuel than those installed on sailboats... not to mention that the saling boat usually navigates without the need of the engine, with the exception of port maneuvres.
 
For any taken lenght of boats, sailboats are roomier than the motor boats. This is partly because of the space dedicated to the big engine room of the motoryachts. But also, because sailboats are higher (or deeper) since they are designed to be stable in the water, and not to slide over it like a motor boat does. In practical terms, this means that ot fit any given number of people, the motor boat you will need will be bigger than the sailing boat.

Decision 5.- Rental boat with or without Skipper (with Crew or without Crew)
 
It is mandatory to have the services of an skipper or captain if no one in your crew holds the qualifications and experience required. We recommend hiring an experienced charter skipper who knows the boat and sailing area perfectly. However, charter companies usually have these professionals available. It is also interesting to count on these professionals in cases in which the skipper needs to learn more, or can do with a bit of qualified help on board.
 
If we hire a charter skipper we must be aware that we will have one more person in the boat, and we have to count on him for just about everything. Normally, the skipper sleeps with us on the boat (unless we hire him only for navigating during the day, and he goes back home to sleep). If space permits, you should reserve him a cabin, if you can not, he can always share a room, although it is normal for them to sleep in the boat's salon, or on deck if the weather permits. As a person we hire for our trip, he will have all expenses paid by us, and he will eat from whatever the rest of the crew eats on the boat.
 
Even if hiring a Skipper is having a stranger on board, professional skippers are often very interesting people, nice to be with, and hold people skills, that help exceed the expectations of the trip, and there is a lot to be learned from them. They tend to be people who know when they have to be there and when they should leave, and act accordingly.
 
Although it may seem obvious, it is important to note that the skipper is not a home service person, but a qualified and experienced marine professional. You can hire additional professional crew for services as required: cleaning, cooking, additional sailors. If you choose not to not hire these professionals, everybody on board is supposed to share all the work on board. It is also of utmost importance to know that the skipper of a charter boat is the maximum authority in the boat, and is responsible for the ship, for the persons on board, and their interactions with third parties at sea, with everything that entails.

Decision 6: Signing the charter contract¡; Tariffs, prices and payments
 
Once we have taken the five previous decisions, it is time to study the market. We need to find the boat in the base port we have chosen or in the navigation area we want. When we know what is on the market, we will make a decision based on the offer that we gives us more value our money. This value will be a result of the vessel size, number of cabins, number of bathrooms,.. compared on the basis of price. We also have to take into consideration issues such as the perceived quality of the company, which gives us confidence, etc.. In this regard, it is interesting to seek references from the company on the Internet, such as ratings and reviews, study how long the company has been operating , etc.. There are great differences in the rental conditions of the boats.
 
At this point we will realize that each company sets rates and offers in a totally different way. We will need to extract the information we need to able to compare. The information we need is simple but not always easy to collect:
 
- Boat Rental price: We need to know if the offer includes taxes or not (the price difference may be as much as 21%). The newest ships are the most expensive, but also some that have better conditions or more equipment (air condition). In general, charter companies offer new boats not exceeding 4 years. If boats are older than that, that fact should be reflected in the price.
 
The price should always include mandatory insurance and of charter, mooring in base port (with some exceptions) and full fuel tank.
 
- Deposit: Boat charter is similar to boat rental in this respect, where the deposit is something that we pay, but we will get back if we return the boat in the same condition we took it, and with the diesel tank full.
 
- Price of the Skipper: Prices range between 130 and 180 € / day depending on the area and charter period duration.
 
- Boat Cleaning after charter, sometimes it is included and sometimes it is not. It ranges from 80 to 130 €.
 
If we are not clear about any of these things, it is always interesting to contact the company to make sure we have all the information.
 
- Necessary Extras: Some companies charge for bed linen and bath towels. Others include it in the price. Should be consulted. The boats are usually fitted with the necessary equipment for people who fit the same.
 
- Optional Extras: While a RIB or dinghy, is often included in the standard equipment, its outboard motor may not be. Some companies rent diving or Snorkle equipment for their boats. The motorboats can sometimes be ordered with plenty of water toys which are usually paid separately. The sailboats may have option to rent additional sails, like Spinnakers or Gennakers.
 
Once we decide that we want to go for the offer, the next step is to make the reservation. The charter booking means typically a payment of 50% of the total rental price of the boat. The remaining 50% will normally be paid a week before embarking. There are minor differences in this respect from company to company. The day of embarkment we shall pay the outstanding expenses of the contract, which will normally include the salary of the skipper, the final cleaning and the extras hired.
 
We must bear in mind that once we have the boat, we have to provision for food and cleaning products. This is an addition to the charter expense, and it complicates the logistics, especially in ports where we do not know the existence of supermarkets and their weekend opening schedules. To solve this, many companies offer the boat provisioning service. This means that when you get the boat you will find everything you need. This service costs a fraction of the shopping amount.
 
Each company has a different policy regarding cancellation of the charter. You can contact the the charter company and ask before making any payment. You can also use cancellation insurance if you think there is a risk that your sailing holidays may be jeopardized.

 
There's nothing to prevent you from renting a boat. Go for it!

BOAT TRANSPORT SERVICE

 
Mar Infinito offers you its professionals experience to trust the transport of your boat, no matter where you may want to take it, or from where you want to pick it up. Do not let aficionado skippers take your boat. Leave it in the hands of the professional crews that Mar Infinito offers you, together with all the possible guarantees by means of a service contract. Mar Infinito has specialised skippers for every type of boat, to ensure the highest service efficiency, no matter what conditions they may encounter: sailing boats, motor-sailors, outboard engine boats, motor yachts, trawlers, llauts, RIBs, jet skis, displacement and semi-displacement boats... A good example of this value added service from Mar Infinito, is the transport of Llaut boats, where we normally hire the skippers that normally work for Menorquin Yachts. For Belliure transports we always take someone from the shipyard along with us, just in case (remote case) that a Belliure boat might have any issue during the trip.
 
Mar Infinito professionals have many Nautic Miles on their backs, and had suffered, endured and solved many of the problems one normally encounters at sea. Moreover, Mar Infinito can offer you the best official technical support for most boat engines usually mounted on the boats we transport: Volvo Penta, Yanmar, Cummins, Caterpillar, MTU, Mercedes, Solé, etc.. also the best electrical and electronical technicians, sail manufacturers, etc.. All these professionals can be dedicated to service your boat, and can be part of the crew of the transport if they are required to. Infinite Sea skippers are members of a professional network that can solve almost any emergency that may happen during the transport trip, throughout the Spanish coast, and many points of the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.
 
Mar Infinito offers the Boat Transport Service at a very competitive and fair price. A taylored made budjet will make every money aspect of the trip totally clear and detailed.

ONCE WE SET SAIL
 
The Mar Infinito professionals will take the boat from the starting port to the destination port, stopping at the ports previously agreed to with the boat owner. For safety reasons, the program of the trip might suffer slight changes that the skipper feels necessary, within logic, and that will be justified later to the boat owner.
 
The boat will navigate maintaining the engine revs agreed with the owner, to economize fuel and stick to agreed Boat Transport service completion schedule. In the case of sailing boat transport, the use of sails as a means of propulsion, will be used when it will increase speed and economy to the trip, as long as it will not make a substantial change in the boat's straight trajectory to the next destination port. These aspects can also be varied by the skipper for safety reasons, caused by technical or meteorogical issues, and they will also be properly justified to the boat owner.
 
The Mar Infinito crew will maintain contact with the boat owner, or with the person the boat owner delegates this task to. The crew will necessarily inform of the arrival to a port and of the depature from a port, everytime this happens, and every time an incident occurs. Every time the comunication is established, the skipper will inform of all the details of the last stage of the transport. The information will include all the aspects that both skipper and owner consider important and agree to before the trip. For instance, bilge water, engine performance, speed and autonomy.
 
Mar Infinito's Boat Transport Service ends when the complete boat crew is back at home. Before this, the crew will have left the boat perfectly moored in the assigned berth at the destination port.
 
They will have handed the boat documents to the Port Captain office. Last but not least, they will have left the boat, at least in the same state of cleanliness and order as they found it innitially. Infinite Sea gives you the possibility to order a full boat cleaning at the destination port.

SERVICE CONDITIONS
 
Mar Infinito does not want risks of any sort. Safety is the first and most important aspect to check before departing, specially if the boat belongs to somebody unknown. That is the reason why Mar Infinito establishes the following set of conditions to the boat owner, before comitting its professionals to a Boat Transport Service:
 
• The boat should have all documents in order, according to the regulations of the sea authorities of the countries whose waters have to be crossed. The boat and and its equipment should also be in order and with all due inspections taken and documented.
• The boat should have the prescriptive insurance policy, that will necessarily cover the transport trip and the crew that is to be hired to Mar Infinito to transport the boat.
• The boat should have the compulsory safety equipment for the navigation required for the transport properly installed and documented, and it should be in perfect working order.
• The boat should be in good overall navigating conditions, with the engine/s properly serviced. If the boat to transport is a sailing boat, all rigging, ropes and sails should be fully functional.
• Mar Infinito will write an authorisation document that the boat owner should sign to authorise skipper and crew to navigate the boat and manage the boat transport paperwork. Depending on the starting point and the final destination of the boat, and potential stops during the trip, it might be necessary to sign additional documents. For instance, we may need to be authorised to enter the premises of the deperture port.
• Mar Infinito will write a contract for the service that will contemplate all the agreed conditions, together with the estimated dates of departure from the starting port, and the estimated date of arrival at the destination port.***
 
Mar Infinito can advise you with respect to the above conditions before signing the service contract. Mar Infinito can also provide most of the necessary equipment, if requested by the boat owner. This advisory service will be compulsory for those cases where the boat is a brand new shipyard boat, or a boat just purchased by the client. The reason being that the client himself ignores most of these aspects.
 
 Traslado Venecia
 
 
PRICES AND COSTS of the Boat Transport Service
 
The minimum prices for the service are the following:
Minimum price: 150 €* per day per person**
From 0 to 50 Miles - 5 € per Mile per Person**
From 50 to 200 Miles - 4 € per Mile per Person**
From 200 Miles on - 3 € per Mile per Person**

The minimum price for the service will be 150 € per day per person, which is the normal price for a skipper of a charter boat. This is based on the fact that what ever the transport service, the skipper will have no time to do any other service during that same day.
 
The scale of prices shown above corresponds to the minimum prices charged for a standard service. Mar Infinto reserves the right to vary them as a result of specific requierments from the client: specifically qualified personnel, experienced personnel in certain jobs, non adecquate service conditions, etc..
 
Mar Infinito will charge 150 €* for each and every additional day required for the transport, but not dedicated to navigate. For instance, a day of bad weather when both the boat and the skipper must stay in a harbour waiting. Another example would be the time taken for the crew to get back home after leaving the boat in the destination port.
 

EXPENSES
 
Additional Expenses of the Boat Transport Service to be paid by the boat owner:?

• The fuel needed to complete the transport, and a bit more. The client will fill the fuel tanks, and will give a the skipper the cash needed to complete the transport distance, if it is more than the real boat's fuel autonomy.
 
• The crews transport expenses from their homes to the departure port, and from the destination port back to their homes. For these trips, the crew will study all the options and choose the most efficient way to travel (bus, plane, train, rental car, ferry).
 
• The mooring expenses and the cost of water and electricity supplies at the ports where the boat may stop, will be paid by the boat owner.
 
• The food and drink expenses of the crew will be paid by the boat owner, with a minimum of 35 €* per person per day. These expenses include all meals from the moment when the crew members leave their respective homes, until the moment they return to their homes.
 
• All emergency expenses that may be necessary during the transport period, so as to maintain the safety onboard and to complete the agreed service. For instance, the hiring of a diver to free the propeller from a rope curled while mooring.
 
• In general, the boat owner will pay any necessary expense during the boat transport. The rule is that neither the skipper nor the rest of the crew should pay anything out of their own money, from the moment they leave their home towards the boat, at the beginning of the service, until they return to it afterwards. All expenses will be justified by means of tickets and bills. All unnecessary expenses in clothing, presents, etc., will not be paid by the boat owner. Skipper and crew will attend the transport fully equipped for the service they will perform.

NOTES:
 
* All prices have to be increased with the corresponding VAT.
 
** The amount of people needed to crew a Boat Transport Service, will be calculated by the Mar Infinito executive and the boat owner depending on the nature of the boat, the complexity of the transport sercice, the professional qualifications needed on boatd, the length of the trip in miles, the shifts needed, the complexity of the maneouvers, and any other consideration that has to be taken into account for the complete safety of the boat and the fulfilling of the service.
 
*** Mar Infinito advises boat owners to act with enough time when planning a boat transport. As we have seen, there are many aspects to take care of before ordering a boat transport service. Additionally, we have to count on the meteorology to estimate the boat transport departure and arrival dates. In this sense, once the boat sets sail, the skipper takes full responsibility of the boat and of the crew, and reserves the right to discontinue the trip if there is an inminent safety risk for the boat or for the crew. This might mean entering a port to wait for a storm to disappear, or to fix the engine. But it might also mean to end the transport before arriving at the final destination of the service if the boat is not safe for navigation.
