exhaust is made from copper nickel. Sandblasting and painting steel, aluminum and fiberglass hulls. Services also include peeling of fiberglass hulls.
FABRICATION You can Customize your vessel by taking advantage of our fabrication Specialists at Ramsay Marine to Design and manufacture anything you can
PLUMBING This plumbing, which we nicknamed the â€œcar washâ€?, was piped in 316 stainless steel and presented quite a challenge to plumb behind the marble facing. All the fixtures were of 14 karat gold. The tub has a marble surround with a fighting chair to swivel in and out. A hoist ran from the tub to the shower and the mirrors have electric blinds.
HULL PLATING Ramsay marine will remove and replace any corroded hull plating whether aluminum or steel.
CUSTOM TANKS Manufacture of steel, aluminum, stainless steel or fiber glass tanks.
LADDERS You ask, we design and manufacture in any material.
POLISHING Fabrication, welding, and then polishing 316 stainless steel to a number eight finish.
COPPER NICKEL piping systems From field drawing to finish product. This project was extremely challenging due to the restricted space. The piping was 3” -90/10 copper nickel—sch. 10.
Below: CuNi Raw water lines.
Above: New fire and emergency bilge pump system with 3” three way valves. Below: An intake manifold in 5” Sch. 40 CuNi. With stainless ball valves.
Fuel systems All piping is run in 316 stainless tubing.
Summer wind Ends a two year refit. Ramsay marine redesigned the original hydraulic propulsion and installed new variable displacement pumps, piping and electronic controls. 14
Commercial Ramsay Marine completely rebuilt the rudder system to be removable. New rudder bearings, a new skeg, new cutless bearing and repairs to the hull were made.
Shipping: Ramsay Marine Installed new ballast control valve hydraulic tubing to new solenoid control cabinets which control the sinking and flotation of this submersible transport ship. New tubing was in 316 stainless steel.

Winch repairs Richard Ramsayâ€™s son Brad makes old into new.
Bow thrusters Installation of new hydraulic bow thruster by Ramsay Marine on a 108â€™ Burger Yacht. Old electric thruster was removed and the tube removed from the hull. A new tube was rolled from plate and welded in to match thruster prop size.
Bow thruster tube installation in fore peak.
Hydraulic mast installation Concept and design by Ramsay Marine, developed and drawn by a Naval architect, this existing mast on a 108â€™ Burger was converted to a hydraulic system to allow transition of the Great lakes bridges with the greatest of ease. Mast structure and decks structural strength was increased and cabinet built to stow the custom three stage ram. New storage cabinets were manufactured. The radar domes also swivel down.
Rudders Removal of rudders to replace bearings. This job was on a 142â€™ Trinity Yacht. Cutless Bearing material can be rubber, Vesconite or Thordon.
Cradle This steel fabrication project by Ramsay Marine is a custom lifting cradle for a Trumpy Yacht. It has a bolt together construction that allows breakdown for transportation. It will fit on 20â€™ a trailer. Lifting and load calculations were drawn up by a naval architect and certified.
Custom Exhaust mufflers Manufactured by Ramsay Marine.
316 Stainless steel cutwater fabricated, welded and polished by Ramsay Marine on a Trumpy Yacht.
Exhaust Brackets Ramsay Marine manufactures and sells this hardware.
Shafts and Props Ramsay Marine will remove props or shafting and send them out for inspection and or repair. Final fit can be made by our skilled tradesmen to the best fit possible. This shaft and prop has been blued to check fit.
Strut Replication below.
Struts These struts have been manufactured by Ramsay marine.
Above and left: These struts were made longer. A pattern was produced on the boat then a jig made and aligned with a laser. The strut was then cut back shorter then extended. This method is extremely strong and would eliminate the chance for cracking at the joint.
Poseidon Drive System Ramsay Marine removed refitted and realigned this drive by means of dial indicators The final adjustments were made during sea trial with vibration analysis equipment.
Digital Laser Alignment Ramsay Marine has invested in this state of the art digital alignment laser which has an accuracy of 0.006 thousands in 300 feet. We strive to give you an accuracy in your alignment of .000-.003 thousands. This accuracy will ensure the longevity of engine , transmission and running gear cutless bearings. Increased performance and fuel consumption are also a bonus. Next page lower: Shows the use of a laser with pin hole targets. This method is used on smaller boats and produces excellent results.
Shafting Left above: Shows the use of dye penetrant to detect cracking in stainless steel alloy shafting. Above: Shows the use of a dial indicator to check transmission flange run out accuracy. Right: Optical telescope This shows the use of an optical telescope with glass cross hair targets to check the alignment on a 111â€™ Burger Yacht The accuracy is comparable to the digital laser, .003 inches.
Engine Mounting Brackets Ramsay Marine will custom make and Fabricate any part you require. Shown here are aluminum engine mounting brackets.
Industrial section Richard Ramsay has worked since 1970 in many fields of industry which has included, Marine, Weaponry and weapons systems, Paper Mills , Foundries, Power Plants, Oil refineries and numerous New Construction Projects. Richards exposure to such a wide range of industries has given him a wealth of knowledge and the ability to take on any challenge. Ramsay Marine is always looking for that next mountain to conquer and would invite those who have a challenge to offer to let Ramsay Marine show you that our knowledge is unsurpassed. It should also be noted that Ramsay Marine works in conjunction with other contractors that cover areas of expertise that is not covered by our company. These contractors are of equal caliber and Ramsay Marine stands behind any work carried out by other parties. This means that with team work there is nothing we cannot accomplish. Following pages Piping systems for a new oil Blending Plant a two year project. Page 42: shows pigging lines, these lines were welded with a flat root pass and 100% x-rayed. Page 43: shows blending plant piping to supply the mixing drum. Page 44: shows crossover piping on shoes. Page 45: shows what was known as the â€œsnake pitâ€?. This part of the project was built while in use and was put into service with no loss of production. The walls and all the piping are new and posed quite a challenge. The floor, drain pan and grating was also replaced. Page 46 shows more piping with cam lock fittings and butterfly valves.
High pressure x-ray quality pipe welding. Left: 10 Thousand ton press. Richard Ramsay supervised the installation of all piping for this press and two smaller that were installed at the same time. Below: 10â€? x 1 3/4â€? wall mechanical tubing. System operated on white water soluble oil at 4,000 lbs. pressure.
Below: One of the 10,000 ton press legs being transported to the erection site.
Below: High pressure Flanges welded by multiple passes of 7018 low hydrogen welding rod. All welds were x-rayed and subsequently heat treated to normalize the welds and remove any stresses.
Below: 10,000 Ton Press during assembly. Right: related piping 100% x-ray. Tig root and stick cover.
Next page: Refineries replacement piping in schedule 40 stainless steel for product lines. Welds were 100% x-ray.
Titanium Smelter using a Plasma arc. Richard Ramsay installed the piping and machinery for this experimental smelter. Titanium chips were introduced to the vacuum tank in hoppers and melted by plasma arc to form Titanium ingots.
Ramsay Marineâ€™s Latest challenge was to remove thousands of feet of ballasting tubing and replace with new Multi Core Hydraulic Tubing. This was done in the most adverse conditions and with a tight time constraint. Needless to say we finished on time. Here is part of the crew that flew out to the ship at one of our trailers placed on deck. The crew of 14 finished this job in 17 days.
These frames show the Multi Core Hydraulic Tubing located in the ships ballast tanks which run for hundreds of feet from the electrical / hydraulic solenoid valves, shown on opposite page to the hydraulic actuators opposite top right which open and close the ballasting butterfly vales opposite below right. Note: All the water proof bulkhead fittings were replaced.
Ballasting is used to trim the vessel when loading and unloading cargo and is critical to the stability of the ship. This is achieved by pumping ballast water from tank to tank or taking on sea water or discharging overboard.
Ramsay Marineâ€™s crew on board takes a well deserved break. Opposite page: Ramsay Marineâ€™s trailer on deck.
Ramsay Marineâ€™s new venture shows its skills in mechanical, welding and machining, in the production of these Still Well Pipes. The slotted holes are equally spaced and staggered on the opposite side of the pipe.
These pipes are constructed of aluminum schedule 40 and extend over 40 feet. The slots machined precisely running nearly the full length of the pipe.
