Having our FAB Docks manufactured in New Zealand for the past three years, we thought it only fair that we actually share the benefits of our world class dry docking system with our ANZAC neighbours.
So we left a beautifully warm Spring behind on the Gold Coast to be welcomed by a howling cyclone, driving rain and freezing temperatures on our arrival into Auckland. (My congratulations to the Virgin pilot for getting us on the ground safely. By the way, Virgin is the name of the airline for those that didn’t know, I am not sure of the pilots experience in his personal life.)
The rain abated to periodic showers throughout the weekend for the Auckland Boat Show, but if you have been following my stories, rain at a boat show is a fact of life for us. But they breed these Kiwis tough over here and a bit of rain and 50 knot winds isn’t going to stop them from checking out the latest boats and marine products on show.
And so, on top of the normal enthusiastic response we receive from guests at boat shows all over the world, Kiwis were even more amazed that such a worldwide product is actually manufactured in their country. They now have an environmentally friendly alternative to keeping their boat clean, that also helps them berth their boat, is nearly half the price of any other option, and is made in NZ!
With FAB Docks already in the water at Orakei Harbour and Half Moon Bay, for those that couldn’t make it down to the show, you can still arrange to get a close up look by calling Bill Richmond on 0274 732 386 and he will be more than happy to show you one and explain all the benefits of having a FAB Dock under your boat.
I am looking forward to my next visit to help Bill install his first batch of FAB Docks and see if Auckland does actually warm up in the summertime.
