Super Saturday Success
The Boatbreakers team hosted our first Super Saturday event on October 10th. Our Boat Scrapyard group has also surpassed 12,000 members on Facebook. Due to the success of the first open morning the next Super Saturday will be November 7th.
Due to so many people asking us if we could be open at weekends we decided to trial being open on a Saturday. Like any event we weren’t sure if people would actually turn up. But after the success we had a the YouBoat Show we thought why not give it a go.
Trial Open Morning
With Tom joining the team on a more official basis he wanted to get some events going. He put the adverts on our Boat Scrapyard group and people seemed to be excited to come down. We did stress that it wasn’t a big event we were just trialling being open on a Saturday morning.
The joy of hosting our own open day was we didn’t have to move anything. With other shows or boat jumbles it takes days to pack up the stock ready. This time people could wander the shelves and browse what we have.
Warehouse In Gosport
Our team were pleasantly surprised with the number of people who had come to visit. So much so that we will again be open on Saturday November 7th. This is at our Gosport Warehouse, NOT the Scrapyard in Portsmouth!
Again it won’t be a special event it’s us simply being open on a Saturday morning. So if you can get down on a weekday we are open Mon-Fri. We always recommend calling ahead to make sure someone is in as we can often be out sorting boats.
Browse Boat Scrapyard
You can also browse the items we already have online by visiting our Boatscrapyard.com site. As anyone who has visited the warehouse will know we have lots more that is unlisted.
Special mention finally to all of our Boat Scrapyard group members. It has once again gone from strength to strength is rapidly approaching 13,000 members.
