Even if you are merely rowing a wooden boat across your favorite river or propelling a dinghy forward across the lake, you are always going to have a reliance on spare marine parts. Because what are you going to do when one oar snaps in half? And what are you going to do when your power motor on your dinghy craft putters to a standstill in the middle of the lake? This question has been asked a thousand times over by seasoned pilots of the sea now familiar with the more challenging adventures of traversing the roaring and choppy seas of the oceans in their commercial line fishing boats and luxurious world seafaring yachts.
It does not matter what port they dock in or leave today, they will always have replacement marine parts available to them today. No, not necessarily in the port or harbor they have landed. But whether it is being provided to them from the Pacific West Coast or the Far East, the spare parts will come to them just as soon as possible. This is made possible through free shipping to whichever port in the world you find yourself stranded.
As to where and how the parts can be shipped to you in the middle of the ocean that would have to be addressed in another online short essay. But not here. In any case, qualified and seasoned pilots, with huge responsibilities on their shoulders, know full well that it is always best to prepare for all eventualities before leaving port on a long fishing trip or across the ocean yacht journey. And that preparation will include having all necessary replacement marine parts stored away on board. And of course, crew members must have the engineering capacity to carry out repairs when needed.
