What a weekend everyone had at this year’s Mandurah Boat Show. For once, we had perfect weather in which to set up our now famous FAB Dock tent and reinstall Mark’s FAB Dock underneath his tricked up 240 Boston Whaler Outrage. But this sense of dryness and warmth disappeared as quickly as it arrived and we spent most of Friday huddled in our tent avoiding the gale force winds and frequent showers, along with anyone who was brave enough to risk the elements to view the latest and greatest in marine products. It’s amazing how interested some people can be in a dry docking system, even though they don’t even own a boat, when it is pouring rain and we had a dry tent.
But the weekend more than made up for this wet and windy start and the crowds flocked in. Justin, Hayley and I were swamped with enthusiastic boaties keen to learn how a FAB Dock could save their boats. The main difference, though, between these requests and every other boat show that we have exhibited at, is that most of these people had seen a FAB Dock either in the water, in a magazine, on our website, or a friend had told them about it.
We are all so very proud that all these years of product development, excellent customer service and just plain hard work is finally paying off. So much so that I had to extend my stay out West by another week so that we could install some of the FAB Docks that had been ordered previously as well as measure up all the new ones that were ordered at the show.
So from the bottom of my heart, and the whole team here at FAB Dock, we would like to thank all our customers who have made us the number one dry docking system in the world.
