April 2015

The sun is shining and the boating season is underway!

We are delighted to announce that we are back in the slipway from 1st June. Another late start this season and a waiting list that started last year has me very busy juggling trolleys and boats and ordering bitumen by the lake-full.

We are not yet fully booked, but now is the time to contact us if you would like to discuss surveys, steelwork, blacking, epoxy, antifouling or any other out-of-water work.

Before we start in the slip, we are already busy with the usual little breakdowns of the beginning of the season and with the many of our customers who seem to have BSCs due. We are glad to see that some of you are also booking an annual engine service. If you haven’t already done so, get that oil and those filters changed, get those tappets checked! Your engine will thank you for it… Give us a call if you’d like us to schedule your service.

We have also had a wonderful time with a major electrical overhaul for a returning customer, including 5 new bespoke fully adjustable solar panels. She now has more power than she can use, which entirely makes up for our traditional day spent on the solar installation in the rain.

Elijah solar installationElectrics are always Jon’s first love, and our solar panel installations are very slick now. They are such a great investment, Element has had them since my first spring aboard her and they still seem like magic free power!

Remember we are on Twitter and Facebook; send us photos of you adventures, we like to hear from you!

Happy boating!
