Hi all, Hydraulicpro here! I am a new member to Club Sea Ray. I wanted to let you all know who I was and what I can do for the members that have Hydraulic operated Swim Platforms. I have been formally educated and working now in the field of Hydraulics, Pneumatics and Control systems for the past 45 years. I own a company that has supplied just about all of the Yacht manufacturers directly or indirectly with the Hydraulic and Electrical Control Systems for the Swim Platforms made in the USA. I have supplied systems to some that you all are probably familiar with in one way or another like, Sealift USA, GHS (General Hydraulic Solutions), TNT Lifts back when Tony owned the company and I also designed and manufactured all of the Hydraulic and Controls on the Lazzara "LSX75 and 92" yachts as well as other Lazzara models. I have even replaced Nautical Structures Systems. If fact another one is going through the shop now including all of the cylinders for rebuild. I have history with the Transom Lift industry back as far as 1998 when I moved to Florida and helped get GHS (which is a division of Southcoast Marine) into the Lift business. I also worked with Sealift to get them into the Lift industry. Sealift has been sold a couple of times since then but, I have been along for the ride with them. Currently Sealift is owned by Freedom Lift. Stephen Johns runs the Sealift side of the business which is out of the Space Coast here in Florida. They have one of the best designed Lifts that I have seen. I still supply pumps to Sealift and I am their customer support Tech Hotline. I usually stock all the parts necessary to build a complete new Hydraulic and Control system including the Harnesses. These are OE systems, not patched together parts with lots of fittings that could leak. My Lead-Time is typically about 1 week unless there is a line. All the new systems have a 2 year warranty and we don't have many warranties. I tell all of our customers that if they have a problem after 2 years to always call me because I might just cover it under warranty if I think the part should not have even thought about failing. Just a quick note about the cylinders. Cylinders do not wear out if properly installed. The seals get old and tired and may need to be replaced but the cylinder itself is usually good. 99 percent of the time the hydraulic Lift and locking cylinders can be rebuilt and be good as new. We have never had one come back. We stock all the original seals necessary to fix most of the cylinders. If we don't have it on our shelf then, it will only take a couple of days to get it using standard ground shipping. We usually buy extra seals to make up stock seal kits for anybody else that might need a rebuild in the future. The price of us rebuilding the cylinders is 1/2 of what they cost new. Yes, we even rebuild the ones that are completely welded up. We are not in business to make a living at selling repair parts and hoses. We have them in stock and we sell them at a very reasonable price just to support our great customers. BTW, Technical support is always free so don't hesitate to give me a call (+1 (727)781-1924) email: Sales@PDTIntegration.com . I love to talk Hydraulics, Controls and Hotrods. Thanks for taking the time to read all of this and maybe it will help save you time and aggravation in the future. Happy, Safe Boating from Frank the Hydrauilicpro, IFPS Certified.
