Making our website open to all.
We are fully committed to making our services accessible to everyone, and that is as true for our website as it is for everything else.
As such, we have incorporated a number of features designed to assist navigation through the site both to partially sighted users and those who wish to navigate without the use of a mouse.
The site is built using cascading style sheets to create the visual layout, but if your browser does not support them, or they are disabled, the content of each page will still be visible.
All images and animations on the site have alternative descriptions; non-illustrative images (for example, spacers) have blank alternatives so they can still be distinguised from important content.
If you encounter any problems accessing the site, please contact us, and we will do everything we can to assist you.
Keyboard shortcuts known as Access Keys have been included in this website to assist navigation without a mouse. They can be used from any page in the site, and are listed below:
- 1 = Home
- 3 = Site Map
- 4 = Shop Online
- 5 = About Us
- 6 = Chandlery
- 7 = Fitting Out
- 8 = Boats and Canoes
- i = Outboards
- j = Clothing
- m = Maintenance
- 9 = Contact Us
- 0 = Accessibility
- s = Top of Page
- x = Text Only
You can use the access keys as follows:
Internet Explorer 5+ (PC): press and hold ALT and select the appropriate number/letter, then press enter
Netscape 6+ (PC): press and hold ALT and select the appropriate number/letter
Mozilla / Firefox (PC): press and hold ALT and SHIRT, then select the appropriate number/letter
Internet Explorer 5+ (Mac): press and hold CTRL and select the appropriate number/letter
