Geraldton Boat Caravan & Camping Show 2014

The first rainy day in Geraldton for more than six months just happened to coincide with the 2014 Geraldton Boat, Caravan and Camping Show – but it didn’t stop people from coming out and enjoying the event with nearly 5500 people attending.

The show, which is in its ninth year, was held over the ANZAC Day long weekend at the Geraldton Turf Club, and was a huge event for anyone interested in the great outdoors.

West wins Innovation Award for the second year running

West products win Innovation Award second year running.

The West Coated Foam Fender product has won the acclaim of the Boating Industry Association and has been awarded the prestigious Innovative Product of The Year at this year's Boating Industry Association Awards. This marks the second time West RIBs has been recognised for its unique product development and engineered solutions to common problems encountered in vessel operation.

The West Coated Foam Fender has proven to be an extremely durable and lightweight alternative to the many other products in widespread use. The West Coated Foam Fenders are custom made to suit both vessel operational requirements and aesthectic appearance. They provide a superior level of vessel protection and do not require regular deployment and retrieval like inflatable fenders. They are not heavy and ridged like rubber fender products and they aren't ugly like tyres not do they leave marks.

West Coated Foam Fenders are also exceptionally long wearing and UV stable.

Because West Fendering is custom designed ito suit the particular application it can be fitted to vessels, marinas, jetties and docks. A variety of fixing methods have been developed to facilitate ease of installation.
