THOMASVILLE, GEORGIA (USA) – The new Check Valve from marine wet exhaust systems manufacturer Centek Industries helps prevent water from flowing back into engines and gensets.

“Many different types of boats and yachts will benefit from the addition of a check valve, especially those that navigate in a following sea or have the occasion to back down while fighting a fish,” said Bill Arwood, Centek Industries Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

Like all Centek products, the Check Valve is ABS certified and Lloyd’s Register Type approved. Manufactured from the highest quality, flame-retardant and heat resistant resin, it is available in a wide range of standard sizes for both gas and diesel engine applications.

Centek’s engineering staff has more than 80 years of marine wet exhaust system design and innovation experience. The company has designed, engineered and built more than 15,000 custom marine exhaust systems for yachts, workboats, military and law enforcement vessels and many of these designs are used continuously to build exhaust systems for thousands of new boats and refits annually.

Arthur Libby attended the Shorts Marine Labor Day weekend Open House in Millsboro De. Traffic was very good with boaters looking for repair and maintenance parts. Weather couldn’t have been better for a weekend of boating and everyone was out looking for something to make their boat more enjoyable. Shorts weekend specials put the buyers in great moods as they felt they really got a great deal on their purchases.
There was plenty of interest in new boats also as boaters looked towards trading up.
Shorts shelves were stocked and I didn’t see any customers leaving empty handed.
On a side note, I purchased a new trailer this summer from Shorts and was very impressed with the whole transaction. They even called to check in to see if everything was working a month later.
