Boats being "woodworked" are in there - the
workshop is large, light and airy - wonderful conditions for the woodwork and
painting. There are three boats being worked on, one 46ft and one 52ft
narrowboat and a 42ft little Dutch barge, nearing completion.
Simon said there were two more boats due over
from the steel shop (still at the old unit, on the PWS Industrial estate.) I
went over to have a look and
found a fantastic 60ft Dutch Barge, it was
really impressive with a super stern cabin and lovely lines. I understand
this is off, when finished, to the Nottingham area. Also on the Dutch Barge
side, there is a super 55ft one with a rear well deck, being built for Chris
Farmer. Work was also well on, on a 60ft very traditional narrowboat. I
asked where this was going/who was it being built for, but with all the noise
in there, all I could make out was "Ashby" or similar, so we shall see!
