Closing Down Sale 50% off

Unfortunately, my mate Sean at MGA Watersports in Rochdale is closing down. A great shame as MGA and Sean in particular were a great team of enthusiastic Ribbers always keen to assist.

I spoke with Sean yesterday and he advised that everything had to go - 50% OFF RRP.

They are a main agent for Zodiac, Suzuki and YAM. He also stocks everything RIB related, you name it, he has it. In addition, wetsuits, wakeboards etc etc etc.

So two points, get yourself a bargin and at the same time, help out a fellow enthusiast in clearing his stock and putting some dosh in his pocket.

Sean can be contacted on 01706 379669

Please mention my name, Graeme with the Medline II and I feel sure he'll go the extra mile to assist.

Graeme,
I wondered how long it would take to get out! Shaun mentioned that he was thinking about it, down in London back in January. There's not many marine businesses in Manchester anyway, and now it's one less. It's a shame he's closing, but I'll be there tomorrow morning - I only live 15 mins from him!

Tim.

Graeme,
He's still got some bits and pieces of hardware stuff but nothing I was after.
There are typhoon wetsuits full length at 20 and some well discounted wakeboards, impact jackets and the like. There is also quite a bit of neoprene footwear. There are also some outboard stands going at reasonable prices.

Any boats he's still got are on http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/broker/text/RBZ001

Tim.

He's taking some time out and a holiday (don't blame him). I'm not too sure after that - you'd have to ask him!

Shaun did say that he'd seen your post though, and was going to reply? Shaun...where are you?!

Tim.

what a shame. Bought my boat of him very helpful and really knows his stuff. I have been to his demo days at preston marina after i have seen how hard he works i am not suprised he needs a break.

Picture is one of the custom boats he build last year so show of at preston marina.

I can't get there, but was wondering if he had any "fat git" wetsuits? XL or something..

Also the impact life jackets - manual/auto?

Cheers

Ben

P.S I don't mean to be rude!

Ben,
you'd be best off giving him a ring on 01706 379669.

The impact jackets were the usual sort of thing (not certified lifejackets) and I'm not sure about the wetsuits.

If you're after a "fat-git" wetsuit (I know exactly what you mean!) from personal experience, the O'neill wetsuits are more generously cut than the others.

Tim
