November 2017 Boating News

It was with a slightly heavy heart on a drizzly Thursday (the only sun free day in the whole of October) that we motored our boat “Le Ketchup” to Beale Park for winter storage. Believe me it was the brightest object on the river that day. She always makes us smile and has now […]

Jobelle looking her best

Jobelle and Graham did a fantastic job and we enjoyed being chauffeured to the reception in style!  We were chuffed to bits with how well the boat went down with our guests. Thank you for being so accommodating in taking them all for a ride along the river. I recall seeing a queue of […]
