To be honest it's not something to be proud of.
Buy a car made in the UK and the people in the UK then have more money to buy things like boats from you!!!
It is common sense really but so few people in Britain realise it. Even worse when government depts do it. Go to Italy the Police cars are mainly Fiats - in Germany they are BMWs or VWs - in France they use their own cars. What does Britain do? Buy anything they can and to hell with the result. Obviously with outboards there is no choice but when you DO have a choice why not buy local stuff?
I chose Raymarine beause it is good stuff and it's British. Most people wouldn't even give it a 2nd thought - which is a lot of what's wrong with this country. I don't think there is anywhere on Earth as unpatriotic as Britain these days.
