Fibreglass needs TLC, like any other material, whether it be a good clean & polish or an osmosis treatment. Osmosis is no longer the dreadful stigma it was years ago as we know much more about it now such as; how to both prevent & cure it. The sooner it’s dealt with the better, and most cost effective.


We can lift and store your narrowboat any time of the year and have facilities to do this. Our on-site crane is able to lift up to 20 tonnes, so even large narrowboats (up to roughly 70ft) are fine to be lifted here.

If you are going to be cruising past us, why not get lifted out and be blacked while you stay aboard for a few days? We have a fast turnaround on blacking.
