Arthur Beale Rope Reference Catalogue Launch 20th July

To celebrate our new Rope Reference Catalogue we are going to have a mini celebration! We've a fine bottle of Fair Transport Rum which has arrived in the UK under sail alone - via the Atlantic by the tall ship Tres Hombres and the final North Sea leg in my little Vertue. We will be serving tots in our basement (plus a few beers) and handing out copies of the catalogue with staff on hand to discuss all things "Ropey". The catalogue has been printed and a copy can be downloaded here;...

Our New Rope Reference Catalogue is Finished!

Ok, its true we were hoping to have it ready for Beale Park but one thing and another got in the way and that didn't quite happen. In any case we haven't had one for 400 years so why rush it now! However we are on the cusp of going to print just a few things to tidy up and we will press the button. Its not a boring price list but an informative catalogue laid out in chronological order with the natural fibres at the begining and ending with Technora and the technical blends. There is a section...

Beale Park Boat and Outdoor Show 2017 is over!

It was lovely to see you all there over the weekend. As always it was a very relaxed affair and this year we had glorious weather too - amazingly it rained only at night and was sunny all day. It was a great opportunity to chat to the boatowners about paints and ropes and to catch up on any marine gossip. In the evening we had a refreshing swim in the river on one night and a row to the Swan Pub on another night so it wasn't all hard work. Now it's time to finish our new rope catalogue which goes to print next week. I'd better get on with it.

Scandinavian Christmas Market - Albion Street, Rotherhithe

It doesn't get more Christmassy than this! Especially if its freezing cold and drizzling. But do not fear, the place will be full of warm waffles, hot chocolate and weird cuts of meat to keep you cosy. Arthur Beale will be there as London's largest stockist of Norwegian Devold Woollens and Merino Thermals. There will be Ship Biscuits, Arctic Pilots and anything else we can think of even remotely connected to our Scandinavian friends. I draw the line at hats with horns on but we will let Noggin the Nog in. Come along and get festive.

Marlin's Mission - A Talk by Dave Selby

We are delighted to be able to announce that Dave Selby will be giving a probably hilarious talk as an antidote to the London Boat Show which is being held at the same time. I think this will be more fun! Dave Selby is a passionate but useless sailor who's been fumbling around the east coast for years in Marlin, his 18-ft Sailfish, without dying once. In 2016 the PBO columnist set his horizons further afield, heading off on Marlin's Mission to sail 340 miles up the Thames to London and on to Southampton to exhibit his boat at The Southampton Boat Show. The aim was to demonstrate that cost is...
