Serious ShineFrom afar, boats look clean as they glisten in the sun; up close, it's another story. But with Shurhold Serious Shine, it's easy to restore a vessel's showroom sparkle. Made in the USA, the easy-to-use spray detailer quickly removes dirt marks, water spots and residue from a wide range of surfaces.

Capria CraneWeekends and beautiful weather mean one thing for drystack marina staff: the non-stop moving of boats. With a CAPRIA semi-automated crane system, vessels can go from rack to water in a fraction of the time it takes a forklift—less than three minutes with a CAPRIA launcher—and with a reduced potential for accidents.

IOSSO Odor BusterNo matter how clean it is, a dank and musty boat or RV is unwelcoming. But it's easy to remove these stale, moldy smells with Iosso Odor Buster. Simple to use, it turns the space fresh and airy without merely masking the odors with heavy fragrances.

Buff MagicOver time, boats will lose their original luster. UV rays, dirt, salt and moisture will all take their toll, leaving them dull and grimy looking. With Buff Magic Compound from Shurhold, it's easy to bring back their showroom shine and sparkle. It's a one-step reconditioner and restorer that's effective on a wide range of surfaces.

The Importance of a Sea Trial

 

Sea TrialI am frequently asked if I think it's important that a marine surveyor attend a Sea Trial when one of our clients is buying a used boat. In very simple terms, not including your marine surveyor on a Sea Trial is a failure to complete the full marine survey.

James Neophytou joins North South Nautical Group

James NeophytouJames was first introduced into boating in 1980, in the town of Port Severn. Almost immediately he developed a passion for boating and purchased his first boat, a 15’ Kodiak with a 50hp Johnson.

Unfortunately, a busy work schedule forced James to take a break from boat ownership. He knew though, that one day he’d return.
