Happy 5 Months in Shop C17!

Its been 5 months since the big move from shed F31 to C17 and we are all settled in! If you have not been in to see the new shop, come in during the week 8am - 430pm or Saturday mornings from 8:30am – 12pm.

We celebrated Wear Your Lifejacket to Work Day with AMSA last week and doesn’t the team look great? Even Jessie our 10 year Golden Retriever has her own lifejacket ready for days on the water.

With the new premises we have expanded our range of products and services available:

An old favorite marine carpet is back. Available in Carbon Grey and Mariner Blue it is 2 metres wide and we can cut to your preferred length.

We also have expanded our range of fenders and covers to include ‘The Original PolyForm Fenders’, made in Norway it is now available in a range of sizes including tear drop fenders and matching covers.

We welcomed Kelvin, who joined us in May and is our splicing and swaging specialist! A lifetime of boating, sailing and being on the water gives him a unique perspective on ‘what works!’. Give us a call to quote your snubber, bridle, mooring lines, tow lines or anything else - when experience matters!

Custom mooring and dock lines are now done in-house to your exact requirements. Just this month tiger rope was used for a tow line, a mooring-line was made up with anti-chafe and dock lines for a 30 metre boat which we colour-coded the ends with whipping – make life easy for your deckhands!

Another new addition is our hydraulic swaging machine to do all those fiddly jobs, from safety lines to anchor safety’s we now stock a range of swages, wires both coated and uncoated, eye bolts, turnbuckles, pelican clips and everything in between. Draw us a picture and let us bring your plan to life!
