PHOTO Competition - #messingaboutinNZboats


As a nation that is surrounded by water, Kiwis enjoy 'messing about' in boats. We love our boats, jet skiing and all the activities associated with being out in the sun and water. Whether it's fishing, swimming, diving or that sunset picnic on the remote island beach, nothing beats enjoying the ocean. 

Desalt wants you to snap any picture along that messy theme...that shows you and your crew messing about in boats.... it could be a messy boat....a tidy boat that's got messy with a big catch......or just messing about. Really anything about boats & having safe fun. 

And if the boat gets messy.....of course we have a great product to clean it up.
