Great service from Boatgeardirect.co.uk

I ordered an anchor, some chain, line and a coupler from:

http://www.boatgeardirect.co.uk/index.html

on Tuesday afternoon. It arrived the next morning, everything was present and correct, all assembled and the price was perfect!

I can't remember last time a purchase was so efforless.

These guys deserve our support!

I have used them before - bought a copy Delta anchor off them that looks a lot rougher than the original but does the job for 1/3 the price!!!

Boatgeardirect.co.uk & electronic bilge pump switch

I've used them too and got just what I wanted at a very good price.

I haven't used their electronic bilge pump switch but have got this one

http://www.saltyjohn.co.uk/bilge-mate.htm

having got fed up of replacing mechanical ones.

It's early days yet but it seems to work fine so far.

I haven't used one of their pump switches before but have fitted a pump before with those type of sensors built in and IMHO it was rubbish, wouldn't start pumping till the top sensor was well covered and stopped with plenty of water still in the bilge, maybe this is a more refined design i can't comment. Best i have used is the Rule automatic that comes on for a couple of seconds every 5 mins or so and stays on if it feels resistance until no resistance felt.
