Sea Start

Hi, does anyone ever seen a discount code anywhere for Sea Start? I'm considering joining up for peace of mind - but a bit put off by the price. I've never had a problem since I started ribbing - now have a 7.5 Scorpion.

Sea Start is worth every pound and it is not your Scorpion 7.5 that may need assistance but your engine

Are you really saying that you can not afford less than 3 per week. Why not do 2 miles less and the fuel saving will pay your Sea Start

I joined sea start this season. New boat, engine history unknown to me.
Second trip out, me and the kids, engine died.....
Anchored and phoned sea start. There within 20 mins.
He got me going again, at reduced power but able to get home.
Superb service, and worth every penny and a hell of a lot handier than an Auxiliary engine.
Ps if you get a member to recommend you, both of you receive a pair of boat show tickets- a decent discount?

No, a limited area only, Solent and some other places but definitely not everywhere. There was someone doing a similar thing in the clyde but I think it has closed.

Is seastart a franchise or is that just the name of the outfit in the solent?
What does it cover is it 24/7 365 or seasonal and only daytime?

Their website, showing areas covered etc:
Area of Coverage | Sea Start

Whilst they may be a lot cheaper than buying and fitting an auxiliary - providing you have enough transom room - I can't go along with the 'hell of a lot handier than an auxiliary' as with one of those you still have propulsion & can get yourself out of the sh1t esp as engines often decide to break down at the worst possible moment.
