Well worth a visit

If you can swing by it's well worth a look. I was lucky enough to have Chris putting new tubes on my Ribtec a few years back and was hugely impressed and have been delighted with them ever since.

Advice on repairs etc will be freely given by our 50 strong team, some of whom have been with us for over 25 years. Please feel free to drop by during normal working hours, and meet our friendly and knowledgeable staff
Wish I was closer - would jump at the chance. Anything for a cup of tea and a biccy and the chance to talk about boats.
