What kind of sports do you guys do, is just sailing?
Yeah, it is just sailing.
Do you get stuck in yourself?
I do, I do I race sometimes.
What use of containers does your business have?
We use them for workshops and for storage.
You first previously bought an empty 20ft container, what was that used for?
We actually fitted that one out ourselves, that one was used as a workshop and then we decided it would be better if we got someone else to do it next time.
You just recently purchased a 20ft converted of us too?
The 20ft converted was used for a store of all of our sails, and the recent 40ft we have on order from you is again a workshop / storage and office
Why did you decide to use shipping containers for your requirements?
Our workshops have to follow our boats around the world, so they all to be shipped.
Were you happy with the end product?
Yeah, really happy, they fantastic thank you.
If you ever used containers in the company before other than workshops or storage, what else have they been used for?
Offices, remember the first project we worked on which was going to be like a little office? We still may do that at some point in the future, but we mainly use them for storage and workshops.
In the 20ft, you had bespoke cantilever shelving, did you find them better rather than standard shelving?
Yeah we really do, as we can change the height of the shelving depending on what we are storing.
It gives you control of it?
Yeah, it gives us control of it and we can take them off quite easily and if we need to have the container empty, we can just take the shelves off when we want.
Would you ever recommend Lion Containers to anyone else?
I have mate, I have, you personally as well, all the other sailing teams we have recommend you guys
