Boat Drinking Water Treatment

Keeping your boat fresh water system, including water pumps, pipes, calories, and taps, clean and in good working order prior to boat storage is useful. A good cleanse of the system can remove calcium, bacteria, and viruses whilst also helping to prolong your system elements. A deep freeze during storage of undrained water systems can also cause significant problems to hardware, sometimes forcing new equipment to be installed in the Spring.

Boat Galley Equipment

Staying onboard a boat for a period of time, albeit for a long weekend, a few weeks, a couple of months or even more can rely a lot on what happens in the boat galley! Cooking onboard a boat is a lot more fun and effective with all the boat sized equipment you may need to hand including boat cookers, dish drainers, folding cup holders and folding toasters to mention a few!

River Thames Books, Maps & Guides

During the season, while out boating, a guide to your waterway is essential, whether it be a River Thames Boating Book, a River Thames Map or book on the adjoining waterways it is always handy to have information at your finger tips. Even though you can generally only go either up or down stream the maps and books guide you to lock locations, hazards, boatyards and mooring locations along the river.

Personal Boating Equipment

Getting afloat during the warm summer months is fun for everyone, the Captain controls the vessel with skill, the first mate makes everyone feel welcome, and the crew ensure you set sail and help negotiate locks! Many of us may find ourselves filling all of these positions so get prepared with all the necessary personal boat equipment such as boat shoes, life jackets and sailing gloves to accommodate all that boating can throw at you!

Boat Cockpit Tables

Installing a boat table to the cockpit area of your boat is a wonderful way to enjoy the beautiful sunset and calm surroundings whilst drinking a nice bottle of wine and eating a fresh summer salad. A removable cockpit table extends the use of the space onboard by providing your very own private al fresco dining experience.

Boat Toilet Equipment

One of the beauties of boating these days is that almost all home comforts can be installed on your boat with a little work and inspiration, including everything you may need for a very modern boat toilet cloakroom. Everything from environmentally friendly toilet chemicals, boat sized mini toilet brush and toilet roll holders, to rapidly dissolving toilet paper and toilet servicing kits help keep everything flowing in the right direction!

Boat Canopy Fittings

Boat canopy hood repair and maintenance is an essential job at this time of the year. The canopy bars will have had some use by now so check that everything is in order for the winter; the canopy still has to work during the autumn months too! Everything from boat canopy clips, canopy pegs, hood slide kits and the latest split jaw canopy clamps are available to help repai or improve boat hood configurations.

Boat Mooring Ropes

Ensure you have safe, clean mooring ropes during the year so they work safely. Pre-spliced mooring ropes are very popular as they can be used straight out of the bag; but for long mooring ropes it is a good idea to buy boat rope by the metre.

Fresh Drinking Water

Stay hydrated this summer with a good fresh drinking water system that is clean and purified to help prevent against bacteria build up in the water system. There are several boat drinking water tank cleaners to flush your water system out and drinking water purifiers that can be popped into a water tank each time you fill up!

WaterMota Engine Service

An engine service is a regular maintenance task. Checking, repairing and replacing items that have perished is an important project. From replacing water pump impellers, seals and 'O' rings to changing the engine oil, spark plugs and contact set to replacing engine gaskets and installing new core plugs and drain taps.

Boat Engine Water Pump Impellers

It is important to make sure that your boats engine water pump is running correctly and smoothly so that the water can cool the engine down effectively. Replacing the boat engine water pump impeller regularly and keeping a spare on board can go some way to keeping you moving on the water. Replacing seals, gaskets, o-rings and grease we all help keep the water pump running smoothly.

DIY Tapes, Glues & Batteries

Keep on top of those home DIY renovations or repairs with a wide seletion of painting accessories, glues, tapes and batteries.

Boat Seating & Cushions

Sitting comfortably on board your boat is of the upmost importance! If the captain is not happy the ship is not a happy environment.
