The ABC to a fantastic day was enjoyed by Ian Hornblow and his wife Gwen; our Southampton Boat Show winners, who were chauffeur driven to Torquay Harbour from the Grand Hotel in Torquay to enjoy a blast on the Boatshed sponsored Honda Offshore 225 power boat, on Friday 7th October 2005.
Approval has been given for public and government buildings to fly the 'White Ensign', the flag of the Royal Navy, as part of the Trafalgar 200 programme on the weekend of 21-23 October 2005.
Congratulations to Ian Hornblow who has won the recent competition for a Honda 225hp Powerboat ride.
Ring Ring ! Mandy from Boatshed.com rings the official bell on stand at the Southampton Boatshow to announce another boat sold by Boatshed.com at show. The Southampton show is proving very busy for the Boatshed team with heaps of interest from boat buyers and sellers.
Friendly races were held today in the Solent between 3 famous Round the world yachts, Gipsy Moth IV, Lively Lady and Suhaili.
When Boatshed Hamble were approached to see if they could help out with the Boatshed.Com sponsored Honda 225hp powerboat, they jumped at the chance to lend a hand.

Boatshed were on hand to to see the race from Fowey to Falmouth for the stat of last weeks Classic Regatta. Despite the windy and wet conditions we managed to get some good pictures and the Northerly winds gave Boatshed's rebel ketch "Supertaff" an great run down to Falmouth. A few days spent in Falmouth visiting the local Boatshed were folllowed by a trip back up the coast towards Plymouth. Steven from Boatshed Falmouth was pleased with "Supertaff's" performance, a confirmed racing dingy sailor, Steve was concerned however that she drew a bit more water than he was used to !
Aloha from the race for the last time.
Aloha for near the last time
Great news this week as Boatshed reach 45000 registered customers.
Aloha once more
Aloha yet again.
It's really a thrill to have you along for the ride.
