Bruce Mowatt - Boatshed Hayling Island
Since when I first arrived at Hayling Island with my parents, I have always been interested in getting on the water from a raft, I made from oil drums planks of wood and rope, to motor boats, and rowing boats. later in life my young sons also had a love of the water with a canoe and inflatable dingy, we used to head for the water most weekends. When my sons were working I went in partnership with my younger son, and purchased a 4 berth sailing cruiser, and joined Gosport Cruising club. He quickly wanted my to buy him out of his share to finance his marriage. I owned the boat for around 10 years and enjoyed sailing around the Solent area. I sold the boat before moving out of the Hampshire area. On returning to Hampshire to live my son convinced me to purchase an Ocean sit-on Kayak. My close friend also brought the same, and so very often we were out on the water enjoying the environment. Later when my sons had RIBs I would have the opportunity to enjoy quick journey times to harbours on the Isle of Wight. I enjoy helping my sons sell boats through Boat Shed, and you will often see me in the local Marinas on Hayling Island taking photographs, and talking to potential buyers, and owners wishing to sell their boats through boat shed Hayling island.
