We got so distracted by boats that we could not resist the opportunity to explore the flooring types used on boats. The Cape Town International Boat Show, hosted at the V&A Waterfront and sponsored by Mercedes Benz was an excellent event. We got to check out all the floating masterpieces and get great insight into teak decking and the new composite known as SeaDek.
Many thanks to David Helfrich of Two Oceans Marine, Magson Marine and Daniel Chippendale of Boating World for all your shared insight.
And of course, the stars of the show – the fishies and turtles at the Two Oceans Aquarium!
Love the music? ‘Underwater Love’ by Smoke City (yes, the one from the Levi jeans / mermaids ad!) and ‘(Sitting on the) Dock of the Bay’ by the legendary Percy Sledge.
