This season has raced by with lots of lovely weather for you to enjoy your boating. Now Autumn is approaching it’s time to consider your winter plans for your craft. Preparing your boat for the winter period is one of the most important maintenance issues which needs to be carried out, the primary issues being to protect the engine and water systems from freezing.

We offer a comprehensive range of services to ensure your boat is safe from any damage.

Please let us know if you wish to book a space for winter hardstand, want us to prepare your boat for the winter period or carry out any other repairs or maintenance.

We will send out a ‘Lay up and recommission‘ form to all our customers¬† for them to complete and return to our office. Forms should be returned by the second week of October, so we can plan our winter lifting and lay up programme. The form is also available to view and print here.

Our chandlery is now holding stock of dehumidifiers, cold watch heaters and tube heaters and moisture crystals for those without shore power- these are on promotion at competitive rates. We also have stock of mooring rings for those boats which remain in the water. All mooring lines and fenders will be checked throughout the winter months.
