Dry Dock Facility

WHEN WE DOCK BOATS FOR BLACKING THEY STAY ON DOCK FOR THE WHOLE WEEK IN ORDER TO ALLOW ADEQUATE CURING TIME BETWEEN AND AFTER COATS.

BEWARE OF DRYDOCKS THAT WILL TRY TO FIT YOU INTO JUST 3  DAYS OR HALF A WEEK!

We have a purpose built, covered, double dry dock, able to accommodate 2 x 72ft Narrowboats at a time. The depth across the cill is sufficient to allow docking of deep draughted or partially loaded narrowboats and there is enough height on the bostocks to provide room for proper inspection or  for work to be carried out to base plates and wooden bottoms.

Surveyors have commented on how they enjoy working in our dock over others, mainly due to its cleanliness and the room to work around and examine the whole boat with ease.

The dock works on a Mon - Sat turnaround and available all year round. Here are some of the jobs carried out at the SMWT Dry Dock on a regular basis by our skilled engineers:
