Christmas Hours & Boatyard Lifting
The marina will remain open and manned 24 hours a day throughout the Christmas and New Year period, albeit with reduced staffing.
If you are looking to have your boat lifted out or launched please note that we will be closed from Friday 22nd December 2017 to Tuesday 2nd January 2018 inclusive. Full service will resume on Wednesday 3rd January 2018.
Icy Pontoons - Take Care!!
With wintry showers and sharp frosts a strong possibility over the Christmas period there is the risk that the pontoons and the deck of your boat will be slippery so please take care when accessing your boat.
In icy conditions we always try to grit the access bridge onto the pontoons and the walkway close to the bottom of the ramp. Unfortunately it is not practicable to salt every berth and finger, but if you wish to treat the area around your boat please ask the duty berthing master.
