Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  

 

Announcing New Names!  

 

A massive THANK YOU to everyone who sent in suggestions for naming our new 14ft Dinghy and outboard.

 

We really did receive a fantastic response and had lots of fun looking through them all, there were some very original ones!

 

So our 14ft dinghy will be named Flop and the outboard Flip...together they will be Flip Flop!

A special thanks to Mark Arnold for your suggestion, it was a great hit among the staff..
