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.

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. Choose from a selection of boat captain seats, boat navigator seats, boat seat pedestal frames and economic boat helm seat to exquisitely crafted hand made British boat helm seats.

British Seagull® Outboards

Most people have heard of British Seagull®. Whether you grew up with one, have inherited your parents, or have recently got into boating and started tinkering with one. British Seagull is synonymous with British marine heritage. This classic outboard is a staple still today. With a hugh following around the world we still concentrate on manufacturing the spare parts to keep the British flag flying.

So why not go into your garage or shed and uncover that classic motor that has been lying in wait for a rainy day and see if you can get it going again! We would love to see how you get on too, and look forward to seeing as many as we can roaring back into life!
