Refurbishment work continues on the SYH workshops, with the new roof and cladding being added to the existing building to create a much lighter building on the inside, with construction due to complete on schedule at the beginning of June. Meanwhile out in the marina, work on the fuel bay, crane bay, west harbour ramp and jetty E is now completed.
Users of Facebook may have noticed that we now have a Facebook page with regular updates about what’s going on around the marina. It’s a great way to keep up to date with what’s changing from day to day, find out how the weather – good or bad – is affecting us, and check what’s on offer in the chandlery. Why not take a look, and Like the page if you like what you see?
All berth-holders can request a Unicorn electricity control card from the harbour office. The card allows you to switch on and off your power at your allocated socket so that you only pay for power that you use. One card can be used per socket.
Demand for boatyard work has been as high as ever at this time of year, which has demanded some creativity in finding the best operating locations while the workshop refurbishment continues. We have been helped by the fine spring weather allowing us to break out of the workshops to work on owners' boats ashore on hard standing, and afloat.
One area where work never stops, however, is on applying Coppercoat antifouling in the spray bay. This Jeanneau is brand new – as you can see she hasn’t even been unwrapped above the waterline yet – and the owner asked us to do the Coppercoat before launch, because we could offer him a competitive price due to our spray application process, environmentally controlled workshops and efficient application.
