Wednesday, 27 April 2011

I would like to say hello to my new colleagues Boatshed brokers, customers, and all other boat lovers. Some of you already know that I am recently finished my training in Boatshed HQ and spent few wonderful days in Portsmouth. Now I am ready to start Boatshed Croatia office and to introduce Boatshed brand in Croatia. Regarding that my first duty will be to perform necessary marketing activities and advertise Boatshed Croatia in national nautical magazines and boat shows. Of course I have also planned to be present in Croatian marinas and ports and on disposition to owners and customers as many and possible. Because of its attractiveness and good transport connections, in last several years Croatian Adriatic coast becomes one of most popular cruising areas in Europe so I expect that it will become also new homeport for many new boat owners from UK and other countries. They are welcomed, lot of quality boats here are expecting new crew!

Teak Decking Alternative

Wednesday, 13 April 2011

Boatshed Dartmouth recently successfully sold a Moody 425 and her new owner decided that the cockpit seating and sole were really in need of attention as part of his refurbishment of the yacht. The curved nature of the seating had caused water to lay in certain places on the seating area especially aft by the drain holes which tend to block easily. Over a period of time this had resulted in the original plywood faced imitation decking fitted by Moody completely rotting out and it was starting to lift in other areas.
