THE DIESEL DOC­TOR’S PRE­SCRIP­TION

Canal Boat - - Technical -

ONE OF THE ma­jor diesel bug treat­ments has re­cently been bought by Peter Weide, of MarShip UK, and Steve Cox, owner of SEIP Ser­vices, and we went to have a chat with Peter about the whole diesel bug is­sue on which this ar­ti­cle was based.

You might ex­pect him to ei­ther be a bit of a bof­fin or a slick sales­man – but he’s nei­ther; in fact, he writes a col­umn un­der the nom de plume The Diesel Doc­tor in The Skip­per, a mag­a­zine for trawler­men. Peter served as a marine en­gi­neer on ships for 30 years, fin­ish­ing up as Chief En­gi­neer. When he came ashore he held a num­ber of posts with large com­pa­nies in­volved in ship­ping be­fore start­ing MarShip, based in Tet­bury, Glouces­ter­shire, in 2010 to sup­ply air, oil and fuel fil­ters for, not sur­pris­ingly, ship­ping com­pa­nies. Now he and Steve have just taken over Marine 16 as part of de­vel­op­ing the busi­ness fur­ther.
