I’ve got another client profile on the Chichester Design blog for you this week. We’ve recently launched a website for Anode Outlet, an online retailer of sacrificial anodes for leisure craft.
What are sacrificial anodes? Good question! You don’t hear too much about these strips of metal, but they are vital to stopping the corrosion of important parts of boats, such as hull plates and rudders. Anodes are attached to the underside of a boat and they attract the corrosion instead of the metal components of a boat.

So, England are back to winning ways after an unconvincing defeat of Hungary. I have to say that seeing England again immediately brought back memories of the routing by Germany and the pain of that disallowed goal (I still believe that the game would have been different).
Other sports, such as tennis and cricket, use video technology, so it seems time that football, or specifically FIFA, does the same. Such technology is provided by a number of companies, including, reassuringly, Swiss watchmaker Longines. This rather tenuously brings me to Max Watches.
Max Watches is one of the leading wholesalers of …
