David Bray – Just Boat Insure
Having recently sold his DBY Yacht
brokerage to Rod Waterhouse and David
Renouf, David Bray has been concentrating
on maintaining and growing his pleasure craft
marine insurance business ‘justBOATinsure’
and, as part of a get-fit-campaign, purchased
a StandUpPaddle board (SUP).
On a tour of the Boatshow, memories
of David’s sailboard selling days at Sydney
Sailboat Centre flooded back so he ended up
at one of his previous suppliers BicSport and
chose an inflatable SUP ... amazingly rigid, just
10kg in weight and most importantly comes
with backpack and pump ... from backpack to
the water in under five minutes!
Also available is a range of quality one
and two man transportable inflatable kayaks.
Ideal for boaties, caravanners and those
lacking storage space and car roof racks ...
