Boaters and Global Warming

Concerned about Global Warming and your legacy to your children and grand-children?

Have you considered buying Carbon Credits to offset your fuel consumption? Sailboats too! Sails and Fiberglass hulls are petrol based.

Replace your old two stroke engine!

Did you know that an old two stroke engines only burn 60% of the fuel? The rest is exhausted in the water or the air... Also, the oil mix burned in these older engines is very harmful for the environment.
