If you have a few bits of tatty old veg in your locker or your fridge after Christmas - as long as they are still edible, why not make a soup. Using a pressure cooker its dead easy to make a tasty soup for all your crew. Its a fiery soup with a great bite of chilli and ginger.

After spending six months in Denmark, we’re now once again back on the boat and ready to engage in new cruising adventures! In late November, we returned to the boat, which had been on the hard in Indiantown near Lake Okeechobee in southern Florida. Florida is within the hurricane belt, but luckily for us none of the hurricanes this year went as far north as Florida.
At Boatshed we are always thinking of ways to help people sell their boats more efficiently and providing a better service to both seller and purchaser.
Record number of bids received!
At Boatshed we pride ourselves on really getting to know the boats we have for sale. This means from time to time we come across vessels that are in themselves different or interesting that they are worth an extra mention.
From all at Boatshed, we wish you all a very, very, very merry Christmas.
From the start, Boatshed has always been about promoting and harnessing those family values that most boaters share; spending time together afloat with family and friends; owning a beloved boat that becomes part of the family; weekends spent at anchorages in hidden bays and coves; introducing children to the joys of boating and adventures at sea; the camaraderie that comes with Club and team racing events; endlessly fiddling with engines, warps, sheets and halyard in all types of weather and conditions, and the occasional, perfect, sunset reach or motor home after a fabulous boating trip!
If you fancy a dip in the sea at Christmas, you are either brave/daft or raising money for charity – after all who would want to leave the comfort of their over warm homes to jump into icy waters if it wasn’t for charity!?
With the increased popularity of Bitcoin and Barclays Bank now set to start accepting the "virtual" currency. Boatshed wanted to get ahead of the curve and offer "Bitcoin" as a currency choice when buying a boat. This is a first for the marine industry and makes a great PR story for us.
Here at Boatshed we have some fabulous brokers and today we’d like to put the spotlight on Tim Kingston who is the Boatshed broker for Brighton.
What is it - It is a cooker based on the hay box principle. Once the ingredients have been brought to the boil on your stove, you place the cooking pans into the outer casing, shut the lid and it carries on cooking - WITH NO POWER SOURCE, for hours, until you are ready for your meal.
