Here are a selection of links to helpful sites or suppliers that I use on a regular basis.
I regularly work with Michel at Berryer, he initially did all of the design and specification work for the rudder system on Miss Isle and we are now working together on producing a catalogue of boat designs. Michel is an incredibly accomplished designer with a vast knowledge and experience of the marine industry including a long career at Van Dam boats.
My go-to store for all cloths, composite materials and consumables.
An e-commerce store based in the South West of England that specialise in wood finishing products. I use Rest Express for glues, West Epoxy and Mirka sanding products.
SML marine paints are a great source for the really hard wearing stuff! I use their paint for my hull bottoms and epoxy topcoats for bilges.
I use boatpaint.co.uk for my varnish, paint and associated consumables.
Hardy Engineering did all the welding and Stainless Steel machining on the rudder system for Miss Isle. Highly recommended.
Marine & Industrial are a leading distributor of Performance Coatings, Adhesives and Sealants and Chandlery items. I use them for all of my West System and related consumable supplies.
A timber supplier in the South West of England that specialise in quality marine plywood, softwood, hardwood and boat fastenings. I usually use Robbins for all of my boat building timber supplies. They also now offer a CNC cutting service.
The Classic Motor Boat Association of Great Britain is the number 1 club in the UK for classic boating enthusiasts.
