As the owner of a sailboat, it’s essential to regularly inspect the mast and rigging to ensure that they are in good condition and safe to use. In the past, this often required someone to physically climb the mast or rigging, which can be time-consuming and potentially dangerous. However, with the advent of drones, it’s now possible to conduct a mast inspection from the ground, using the aerial perspective provided by the drone to get a closer and more detailed look at these critical components.
At Drone Service Solutions, we specialize in using drones for a variety of applications, including photography and mast inspection of sailboats. Recently, we had the opportunity to work on the beautiful SV Lola B, a Lagoon 42 catamaran in Alicante, Spain. This magnificent vessel is a popular choice for sailors in the Mediterranean, and we were thrilled to be able to help the owner ensure that it was in top condition.
To conduct the mast inspection, we first made sure that our drone was in good operating condition and that we had the necessary knowledge and skills to operate it safely. We also followed all local laws and regulations regarding the use of drones, as well as any specific rules or guidelines set by the marina or harbour where the boat was docked.
If you are the owner of a sailboat and are in need of a mast inspection, consider using a drone to make the process safer, faster, and more efficient. At Drone Service Solutions, we have the expertise and experience to get the job done right. Contact us today to learn more.
