James Stedeford has grown up around boats, living on the Isles of Scilly it's hard not too. His Bryer boat business has been hit hard by the rising costs of fuel. Can he afford to fill up?
James has lived around boats on the Isles Of Scilly all his life. His father started the Bryer Boat Services many years ago and now James is in charge.

Boats are like cars on Scilly, people need them to get around the islands and islanders rely on James' boat service for essential trips.
The rising costs of fuel means that James has had to put his prices up yet again, this time in the middle of the season, which has never happened before.
This is affecting business dramatically. See his video nation film.
