Moonshadow Star 

This week we had to say goodbye to Brian and Sandy Duker from the vessel Moonshadow Star. She was on harstand with us for quite some time. We really got use to her here. After we gave her a new coat of paint and a nice hull polish, we had to say goodbye to them. They will now be on their way to another adventure....Australia, New Zealand or just wherever the wind takes them. 

We wish them well on their journey. c_130_130_16777215_00___images_Sept2014_News_img_3139.jpgc_130_130_16777215_00___images_Sept2014_News_img_3145.jpg

Princess Emma came to visit

Last week Princess Emma and her crew came around for a visit. She was given a nice high pressure clean and a fresh coat of paint. She is ready for the summer season again. 




Some Skippers Tips

If you observe an experienced yacht skipper, they will run a vessel in such a way that they often appear to be doing very little. It is sometimes said that the best skippers are those who seem to do very little, but the boat is still run smoothly and safely.

How can they do that, and is it something that can be learned?


Summer time

With summer around the corner, we all want our boats to look shiny and new. A nice wash and polish or a new coat of paint, come and visit us for a quotation or some shopping and end it with something to eat or drink.



Tip of the month - September

Shorthanded boat handling in a tight space

If you have to take a boat off a berth when you are alone, it can be very difficult to move about the boat to stow the ropes and fenders when you are in a confined space.

This is particularly a problem if you are moving from one berth to another and need to swap the ropes and fenders to the other side.
