Willow of Harty, snugged down for winter

Snugged down for winter in Faversham creek last weekend, Willow of Harty glints in a brief flash of afternoon sunshine. If this is your boat, please get in contact with me gmatkin@gmail.com, and I’ll send you the much larger original.

Newson’s reopens with style (with a NEW shed!)

On Thursday 7th December 2006 at 11am, the new boatshed and pontoons at Newsons will be officially opened by Lady Anne Wake-Walker.

A couple of years ago the main shed burnt down, but when the workshop doors are opened MTB 102 will again enter the building for further restoration work to be carried out.

It’ll be a big day after all the hard graft that has gone into rebuilding the yard. Anyone wishing to attend will be able to come into the main building and talk about any of the boats currently being worked on.

If you can get there, I say go along and cheer!

Wooden boats by the banks of Milford Haven

Evans Boatwork specialises in building, restoring and repairing wooden craft, and is located close to Milford Marina and the commercial docks at Milford Haven, one of the deepest and most protected harbours in the world.The area is particularly interesting to yachties because it offers cruising in the Bristol Channel and the Irish Sea, and the Cleddau river, which is part of the Pembrokeshire National Park. Evans has a nice little website featuring three of its restoration projects, two of which are of particular interest: a 1960s Shetland skiff and an X boat.
