Frozen in narrow boats

Demostrations for narrow boat sales have come to a stanstill due to thick ice on our marina & canal system.  However we are still doing business.  The narrow boat trolleys are finding it difficult due to the thick ice to haul out the narrow boats for survey & blacking purposes.

Narrow Boat Margo is on it's way into our Napton depo and is stuck in the ice at Barby, as soon as the ice melts enough the boat will be able to continue it's journey into Wigrams Turn Marina and will be available to view.  Keep your eye on 'Margo' on our web site for more information & to find out when she arrives.  She is a 55ft Traditional style, built by Liverpool in 2001, priced at £39,950, an extremely good buy!

Delivery of two 44ft  East West Narrow boats by lorry, is expected tomorrow, that could be interesting, if the icy weather continues!

Boat Surveyor Eddie Freeman will be on site tomorrow to survey another narrow boat.

We have had quite a few customers visiting today depite the hostile weather!

Keep warm & cosy, til next time
