• Saved The Day... Sea Searcher Success

    Young Grace Metcalfe, skipper of the James Cook the Ocean Trust North East's 70ft ketch was in a pickle last Saturday. She rang us up to ask 'have we got one of those magnets that people use if their keys have gone overboard"? A very distraught Grace had managed to drop (slipped out of her hoodie pocket) her bunch of keys into the murky waters of the Royal Quays Marina. On the bunch yes, you have guessed car keys, house keys, roof rack lock and of course the boat keys. One of the crew were dispatched with haste to purchase said item the Sea Searcher Recovery Magnet, an hour later we were informed that recovery had taken place, apparently it had taken less than five minutes to bring the keys back to the surface! If you have keys and are near water maybe consider a Waterbuoy and if your car key is electronic (most are these days and cost a fortune) pop it into a Aquapac Keymaster and again attach a floating cork or Waterbuoy self inflating key ring.

  • Working Through The List...

    Should never have taken the International Paint 'Mystery Shopper' prize which was an I-pad out to the yacht, as after taking an image of the new MG Duff hanging anode and sending it back to base, Andy, who is manning the pumps back in Newcastle, emailed to say the pushpit was looking a bit scruffy! No problem cleaning it as on board we had a container of Spotless Stainless, great product, you paint it on, make sure it stays wet and thirty or so minutes later wash it off with fresh water, the warmer the day the quicker it works,don't wish to crow but today, after ten minutes the metal work was looking like new! Glad the I-pad was in its Aquapac cover as yours truly managed to wash not only the metal work but Jenny and the pad!
