ATL Composites sponsors WEST SYSTEM products to build a Haven 12.5
In February of 2019, the Northwest School of Wooden Boat Building (NWSWB) will showcase a Haven 12.5 at The MyState Australian Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart, Tasmania. ATL Composites is proud to support this project, by kindly sponsoring WEST SYSTEM products for the build.
Selling WEST SYSTEM Epoxy in a retail environment for more than 20 years, the most common question I receive is:
Do I really need the Mini Pumps?
We’ve all been in a situation where the salesperson is trying to up sell us or has no clue what we really need. In the case of Mini Pumps, however, the salesperson is trying to do you a favor. You really do need Mini Pumps unless you already have a set of them, or you plan on using a scale.
‘Dad, I want to buy Auberge and bring her back,” Baden said to me one evening.
Auberge was the Beach Marine Macro 25 that my daughter, Estelle, had bought in Townsville and sailed to Cairns. She had planned on tidying it up and sailing it back to Townsville to live aboard while at uni doing marine science. While working on the trampoline netting in the marina Estelle started chatting to a young man who was walking the jetty. Because of that moment, and subsequent discussions, plans changed over the ensuing months and she ended up moving to Adelaide and attending university there and I became the temporary new owner of Auberge until selling her to make way for our Crowther 43, Whim. Auberge sailed south to Rockhampton with her new owner.
