London Boat Show

Tuesday, 15 January 2008

The London Boat Show is on, Boatshed.com is out in force and we have already made sure we have visited the largest boat on display, had a hug with the famous announcer and even taken over somebody else's champagne bar to hold an impromptu Fizz @ Five session.

Happy New Year from Boatshed.com

Wednesday, 02 January 2008

It's 2008 and as we all struggle back into work, rueing the day we decided that an 18lb turkey was going to be okay for the three of us and wondering how we are going to get the pine needles out of the modelling clay, Boatshed.com wanted quickly to look back over the last 12 months. Partly this is self indulgent because we have fitted an awful lot in, but mostly this retrospective is to show you quite how much we manage to pack into our little year. And 2008 is going to be even busier.

As if it wasn't enough becoming a Boatshed broker, running your own business, meeting new and interesting people every day and getting a chance to view, document and understand boats from all over the world, now it seems that Boatshed brokers can also expect praise and laudations to be heaped upon them (presuming they do a good job of course!)

The November weather and the visibility put paid to the Boatshed Isle of Wight Challenge but this didn't deter 50 powerboat racers, their support crews and family from giving us all a spectacle as they hurtled past at 40 knots. And the event was big enough to warrant a special message from the Queen's Harbour Master based in Portsmouth that the Boatshed.com challenge was taking place today. Hopefully not many ships in the area missed it!

That was the Boatshed cheerleading attempt as Dee Caffari launches her book in the USA today. The first books, hot off the press, will be on the Boatshed booth at Strictly Sail St Pete and I am sure that the guys and gals down there will have all sorts of competitions lined up for some lucky visitors. Remember Fizz @ Five as well (as if you'd forget!)

As you know, Boatshed will go to any depths and lengths to make sure that your boat-buying experience is a good one but even we were stunned at the recent free diving world records that have just been broken by one stunningly brave British lady.
