This spring Midland Mallard are introducing a new product to enable better communication between the captain and group members whilst steering the boat.
Having listened to your suggestion in 2017 we are introducing two way radios to help you speak with your group. Long gone are the days when you are desperate for a coffee but your group are relaxing at the Bow of the boat whilst you steer them about, Canal boat journeys around the Ashby canal will no longer be a waiting game for the Skipper, you can now contact them instantly, that’s right there will be a constant flow of drinks for the Captain!
Order your cup of tea or coffee at the click of a button or send your helpers out to look for mooring spaces in advance with the Motorola H20 waterproof two way radios.
The new system will be in operation from the Spring of 2018 and on-wards and we are awaiting your feedback. Why not book for this spring and be the first to test them out?
