  Boatyard todayToday, the yard is as busy as ever with new equipment, technology and facilities constantly being invested to ensure the excellent reputation gained in the past is maintained and developed.

With this ever changing aspect in mind, this page has been designated as our 'NEWS' Page which will provide an update on developments and jobs being undertaken.

24th Dec Christmas Eve

Cold wind from the East
The Yard, battened down for the Xmas break, is crammed full with only room now for pre-booked vessels to be hauled up in January. Even so several vessels, due to the recent bad weather, have not been able to get to us from the mainland and hope to make it in the new year

Tony and Chris braved the boisterous conditions and took the R.I.B. to Lymington to view a yacht for possible work and on the way back dropped into the Beaulieu River and sailed 'Firebrand' back to the yard for her winter storage.

A Weymouth 42' has come up from her base in Devon to have various job's done including the removal of all of her windows for resealing. Work continues on the steel motor yacht 'Blaze of Tyes' now resplendent in her fresh 'Awlgrip' painted topsides The yard's workboat 'Frolic II' has been hauled up for essential work including the fitting of a new hydraulic bow thruster to replace the existing damaged one. All mooring and bouyage work has been carried out at sea for the R.N.L.I. and other clients with the servicing ashore to be done during the winter.

A very busy and hectic New Year is forecast

We wish everyone a Happy and Prosperous one!

Currently:

A 31' Westerly is housed in our mobile spraying facility and will undergo a complete hull re-spray.

A 27' Wooden Classic keel boat is being prepared in readiness for the fitting of a new deck. The hull will be treated with Epoxy.

Work is also underway on a 46' timber M.Y. which has been fitted with a new teak deck. She is being re-fitted for a new owner ready for Spring. Professor Stephenson's 'Apache' Cat is in the yard. Both engines have been removed and are currently undergoing a general sort out, as is the complete vessel after his epic journeys.

The yard continues to fill with vessels for Winter Storage. Under cover storage is virtually full and already we have no vacant space on our racks for small crafts.

At sea, the racing marks for Bembridge Sailing Club have been gathered and are now stored ashore.The speed marks and lane marks from Sandown Bay have also been recovered.New moorings have been laid for the RNLI at Selsey. Calshot Lifeboat will soon be in possession of hers.

A Shipping Company's relief engineer was delivered to a disabled ship anchored in St Helens Roads. Because of the low tide he was taken out by the yard's R.I.B. during the evening. Conditions were pitch black with hail, squalls and rough seas.
