Our New Rope Reference Catalogue is Finished!

Our New Rope Reference Catalogue is Finished!
Ok, its true we were hoping to have it ready for Beale Park but one thing and another got in the way and that didn't quite happen. In any case we haven't had one for 400 years so why rush it now! However we are on the cusp of going to print just a few things to tidy up and we will press the button. Its not a boring price list but an informative catalogue laid out in chronological order with the natural fibres at the begining and ending with Technora and the technical blends. There is a section...

The CrewWatcher beacons are activated either by proximity or by water activation.

No wonder we struggle to keep up with demand for our Black Welsh Mountain Beerenberg Pullovers

No wonder we struggle to keep up with demand for our Black Welsh Mountain Beerenberg Pullovers
First of all you have to find them! The clever little darlings seem to like hiding as clumps of heather like the one in the middle of the picture. This lovely shaggy beast would make a couple of our Beerenberg Black Welsh Mountain Oiled Wool Pullovers but even when you find them you have to catch them and they are mighty shy. Mind you, I can't blame them, it gets pretty cold on the Black Mountains and I wouldn't fancy spending the night up there after some barber has attacked me with a pair of...

Flying 10 by Johnson and Loftus - Stop Press! THEY WON!!!
Our friends Tim and Dan have just built this lovely Flying 10 which they will be exhibiting at the Dinghy Show this weekend. Before they can enter the Concours d'Eegance the boat has to be sailed so here they are in Loch Broom with show capped peaks in the background enjoying what must be the greatest pleasure of building a boat - the first sail! Our minor part in this beautiful boat was supplying the rigging. We used these handy swaged eyes so that 3 mm Dyneema D Pro could be lashed to the...

Starting to think about painting and varnishing?

Starting to think about painting and varnishing?
Any minute now the sun will come out and you will feel racked with guilt that the tiller is still on the bench in the garage, you haven't planned a weekend to antifoul and you promised that this year you would give those bilges a good going over. Don't worry you're not alone! You might not think of Arthur Beale as a place to buy your paint and varnish but you could be pleasantly surprised! We have just produced a new Paints and Varnish Catalogue that we hope to release on 23rd February. We have...

Emergency Navigation Lights

Emergency Navigation Lights
In the past we have supplied some pretty appalling dross which describes itself as "Emergency Navigation Lights". They remind me of CATNAPs which in certain engineering worlds apparently stands for " C heapest A vailable T echnology to N arrowly A void P rosecution". Pretty much useless items. So when a friend asked me if we could supply some for her yacht I was a bit concerned. She needed to make a daytime passage but if the wind wasn't favourable and she lost the flood then it could end up...
