Confused about electronics? One Jester Sailors answers.

Tuesday, 16 February 2010

The array of electronic goodies and gadgets available for boats is mind blowing and the advertising for them seems to insist you’d be foolish to venture out without all of them so Boatshed Plymouth called by “Just Right” one of this year’s Jester Challenge entrants to see what electronics Gus Davidson will be using to get him and his 20’ Golant Gaffer safely across the pond. Gus has a keen eye on the budget as he’s raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support so he weighs the cost of each piece of equipment carefully to ensure as much money as possible goes to the charity.

FIVE BOY RACERS AND A FAT BLOKE GET SOAKED

FIVE BOY RACERS AND A FAT BLOKE GET SOAKED

Friday, 08 January 2010

They have always been there, somewhere, lurking not so much in my mind as so many things seem to lurk, but more generally in the bottom of a cockpit locker. The white plastic canister, the yellow or orange industrial carrier bag, doesn’t recycle it just yet. Yes, it’s the life raft. When skippers of old used to give me briefings before setting off for parts foreign they were generally covered with the cursory wave of a knarled weather worn hand, having first exposed the package from beneath a couple of old warps, buckets, oars, fenders, you know the sort of thing. Or, in the case of the more fastidious of owners, neatly wrapped in heavy duty polyethylene and bound in gaffa tape, followed by a sage “You need to look after these things my boy, they cost a fortune”.
