19/10/2021 - Dehumidifiers

As we expect temperatures to drop over the next couple of months, condensation is inevitable. Each boat has a dehumidifier to help keep everything dry. Please stow off the boat (in your car) whilst boating and return them to the boat at the end of the trip. Ensure that shore power is connected, the dehumidifier plugged in, the drain hose if fully inserted and left to drain over the galley sink before leaving the boat.

06/08/2021 - 3 week lead time for Instructor requests

We are currently experiencing a high demand for training and skippered bookings. If you would like to book an instructor, outside of our published events, please submit your request to us at least 3 weeks before your booking.

30/07/2021 - Axopar sliding roof reminder

You must monitor the conditions when underway, and if necessary the side doors and roof should be kept closed to stop salt water spray from entering the saloon and aft cabin areas.

When leaving the boat please place the pink pool noodle between the roof cover and the roof to prevent water pooling.

21/06/2021 - Taking more care of the boat hoses

Each boat has it own hosepipe and adaptors. They belong with the boat and no parts should be left on the pontoon taps after they have been used. Please take care with the adaptors and make sure they are returned to the boat after use, you will need them in other harbours and for washing down the boat down. The next member on board will also need them! We are regularly finding tap adapters, extension pipes to the reels and sometimes even complete hoses left behind which is time consuming to replace and annoying for you if you are the one missing hose parts when you need them.
