By Ciaran Warner
With just three days to go until the 20th Auckland on Water Boat Show, boat lovers and professionals alike are eagerly anticipating the country’s most comprehensive and enjoyable four-day showcase of all things marine.
The show, the largest on-water boat show in New Zealand, promises to be a feast for the eyes for the many Kiwis who love boating both as a hobby and a profession, such as Hamilton-based adhesive antifouling specialists Glenn and Mitchell Clough of Marine Protection Solutions.
Making their debut appearance at the Auckland on Water Boat Show, Marine Protection Solutions will be located at stall 328 at Pavilion 3, ready and able to offer the most efficient and economical way to keep your boat clean, sleek and stylish.
New Zealand’s only importers and applicators of FLOW™ technology from Europe, Marine Protection Solutions use Adhesive Antifouling Films that are entirely free from biocides, making them, unlike many other forms of antifouling, entirely harmless to marine life.
Their vinyl boat wraps, applied above the waterline, are easy to clean and come in a wide variety of colours.
“Vinyl wrapping is fast becoming a great cost competitive alternative to paint, with some of the vinyl’s outdoor durability lasting up to seven years,” says Glenn.
The father-son duo is looking forward to bringing this exclusive technology to the Auckland on Water Boat Show for the very first time, having previously enjoyed the show as visitors several times.
“Our company specializes in the application of high-performance adhesive anti-fouling films. These eco-friendly products are a new alternative to help protect your boat and our marine environment,” says Mitchell.
“With 12 years’ experience in the self-adhesive vinyl industry and a passion for marine craft, we’ve got you wrapped from top to bottom!”
With new boat models, new technology, seminars, workshops and more, the Auckland on Water Boat Show is a must-see for boating and fishing enthusiasts throughout the country.
“Our website visitation is increasing day by day as are our ticket sales and we are looking forward to another great showcase of the marine industry,” says Events Manager Stacey Cook.
The show is also a great place for a family visit, with plenty to appeal to the next generation of boaties, including mascot Sammy the Seagull, learn-to-sail courses provided by the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, the New Zealand Navy and more making an appearance.
