So, it's been a long time since I have updated this blog, being busy isn't a good enough excuse but that is my excuse. The showboat was amazing and it drew lots of kind comments but I have now sold it but it was replaced by my next showboat, the shell was built by XR and D, a 60' trad style. It is still being fitted out by myself so I will post pics here when it is starting to come together.
I have been based at Shardlow Marina for 10 years now. 10 brilliant years, but I have decided to relocate my business to a dry dock based workshop. Based on the Erewash canal is Trent Lock Dry dock, a covered dock that can accommodate Widebeams, Dutch Barges and narrowboats up to 70' in length. This is an exciting move for me, allowing me to paint more boats undercover, I will also still carry on building my boats too.
