My family and I were invited to the Land Rover BAR road show on Saturday 6th of May which was held at BAR America's Cup HQ in Portsmouth.
DEMO: Rare chance to see a life raft inflating.
Opportunities like this don't come along very often! If you have a life raft, do you know what's in it? This quick vid shows what's contained in a typical life raft and what it's used for. Love from Boatshed Brighton and Nicky's Canvasworks!
Only a week to go until the next auction which takes place from 14-18 April..
When abandoning their boat - something which is your last resort! - many people go to deploy their life rafts, only to find that they pull and pull and pull at their painter (the operating chord) and their life raft doesn't inflate.

Another thing we are committed to at Boatshed is reducing the costs of boat ownership for our customers. Boat buyers will, typically, spend about 20% of the price of a boat on necessary equipment, products and services within the first 12 months of ownership. This expenditure can be considerable and is often overlooked by other brokers. Our Preferred Partners Scheme is aimed at reducing this expenditure and thereby the overall cost of boat ownership for Boatshed customers.
We want our customers to feel valued, informed and, well…… loved. Instead of us keeping all the useful information about boat sales to ourselves, we have developed some tools to allow our customers to keep themselves informed whilst selling a boat and when looking for a new boat.
