As all boaters know, winter is always the time for boat repairs and refurbishment, ready for the coming season. We are no different, but this year we have changed the company colours from Burgundy and Gold to Blue and White, so our weedboat Gordon had a refit of all wearing parts and a respray. As you can see from the pictures, Gordon is looking resplendent in the new company colours ready for the coming season of work in London for Fountains OCS. The boat can be seen working around the capital from May onwards, but the crews particularly enjoy working up the Regents Canal through Camden and Little Venice where there is always plenty of banter with people on the towpath and in the canal side pubs and restaurants.
We have two weedboats built to our own requirements, Gordon is based in London and Jenny operates from our yard in Somerset. Between them they work all over the country from the Broads to the Manchester ship canal keeping lakes, rivers and waterways clear of aquatic weed which is cut and collected ready for disposal.
