How does it work?

There are two ways to find our Friends of Boatshed;

Click on Explore from the main menu.

This will display all of the categories and you can search for the service you require.

For example, if the boat you are looking at requires new sails, click on sailmakers and depending on where the boat is located it will display sailmakers that can provide their service in the location of the boat.

Click on find out more and a contact form will be shown on the screen which is already populated with your details and a link to the boat you are looking at. You can personalise the message on the form which is sent directly to the marine company. They will be in touch to discuss your enquiry.

It's as easy as that!
