Thanks for saving my boat

Many thanks for the help you gave me in my hour of need. After being launched at the yacht club, and the discovery that I was taking on water, my boat XL arrived at your yard where you immediately slung it to prevent a disaster beforer lifting it the following morning. Also, many thanks to all of the people, including your staff, who rallied around to help with the repairs to the Z drive on my Project 31

OneShot Fuel Additives

I have a Cruiser on the Norfolk Broads powered by a Perkins 4108 Diesel. With all the current concerns over Bio-Diesel and the effects it's having on older engines, plus the storage of fuel over winter months, I decided to use fuel additives for the first time to help prevent "Diesel Bug". I added two OneShot treatments to my fuel, OneShot Diesel Storage Pro and OneShot Diesel ECO Plus. I'm delighted with the results. The engine started second turn of the key after 4 months laying idle. Previously it wold have taken 4 or 5 long attempts. I shall continue to use these products and recommend them to other boat owners. The advice and service I received from Sirius Marine was first class - Thank you

About our OneShot Fuel Additive - Road Diesel Pro

Having suffered engine cut out problems for months, along with changing various parts, I decided to take a careful look at fuel filtering and quality. I used OneShot Road Diesel Pro, but in a rather stronger mix than recommended, i.e 200ml in 200ltrs of fuel. After a complete recovery from the problems, I decided to reduce the dosing levels to those recommended.
I can only feel that this was the result of OneShot reducing the particle size, preventing large particles creating an open pressure control valve and therefore it cutting out by the sensors and then computer. I now intend to use OneShot Road Diesel Pro in every tank fill as it has worked out to be very cost effective and there has been no return of the cutting out problems associated with my common rail engine. Thanks for sorting this problem!

Narrowboat, Progress

Our 50’ Narrowboat, Progress, was built by Sirius in 2005, having spent months with series of drawings hanging on the wall at home, changing as the layout design was refined, it was amazing to see it build up from the base plate, to walk round the shell marking up the position of portholes, hatches and windows.

Progress, was launched on the River Severn at the end of Sirius’s yard at the end of November, we waved to the team who had built our boat as we made off up river to Stourport and never spoke to them again. I feel a little guilty at not getting in touch before now but the fact is that there has been no need, no problems, no niggles just good boating!

One tip I would pass on to anyone planning a narrowboat would be to peg your design out full size with string and tent pegs, that way you can walk round the design full size – our lawn was not big enough so we did it in the local park and provided entertainment to the footballers and dog walkers!

Dear Gill

Just a quick note to thank you and the lifting crew for helping move ”Charlotte” back to Stourport. I was very relieved when she was back in the water and your coffee was a welcome boost!! We spent the weekend catching up with old fellow boaters and cleaning Charlotte inside & out with a good winter polish due. No doubt we will bump into when you are at the club in your other job.
Again, many thanks for all your help & keeping us calm!! Very best wishes.
