Hello I’m Mike Ruffles owner at Spray Marine Services.
My philosophy is to combine best marine engineering practices and best practise survey techniques with excellent service and reasonable rates and fees.
My background is in Engineering, I started out as a press toolmaker in the automotive industry. After taking an HNC in Design Engineering I worked as a Tooling Engineer and subsequently as a Quality Engineering where I was responsible for in depth investigations into failure modes of materials including steel, composites and plastics, components and systems.
I built several small to medium size boats and from 1996 to 2001 I built my steel Spray 38 sailing yacht complete from plans by Bruce Roberts.
I have been a live aboard yachty for over 12 years and have real hands on experience of all yacht systems including over a decade of helping other boat owners maintain, upgrade and enhance their yachts for both blue water sailing and live aboard cruising.
I have in particular specialised in the service and troubleshooting of low voltage marine electrical systems, in the correct design, installation and servicing of solar, wind and alternator charging systems and in surveying steel and FRP/GRP yachts.
My experience in fault finding, route cause analysis, the marine engineering sector combined with my personal hands on boat building knowledge, professional qualifications and ownership of a blue water live aboard sailing yacht means that I’m able to not only identify defects but also to find the route cause of the defect and advise on how best to rectify them.
TestimonialsWhat other are saying...
Mike has been very helpful in finding the correct solution for our solar charging needs for us, performing the installation and correcting existing problems. He is very knowledgeable and patient in explaining the operation and function of the chosen solar panel and charge controller systems for the boat. We have enjoyed his professional way of working and feel very comfortable in calling upon him for any questions we may have. I can recommend his expertise without hesitation.”Ian, ”S/Y
My wife Rica and I have owned Dos Palomas for five years now and as the boat is over 45 years old it had a lot of problems with its electrical system. Mike has tested the complete system and has rectified all the problems found. We are now able to enjoy our cruising around the Ionian without the constant interruptions. Very professional and always willing to listen.”Peet, ”S/Y
Having worked in the industry myself for many years I know how difficult it is to find marine engineers who really know their stuff. You can trust Mike to deliver a professional service without fail.”John, ”S/Y
