It’s time for an MOT and some on site maintenance

On a cold and sunny day last week, Kingfisher and the tugs were lifted from the water. Coussens, the crane contractor, did a magnificent job as usual, ably supported by a band of canal volunteers.

The tug, Jupiter, will be transported to its new owners on the Medway. Kingfisher will undergo its biannual checks by the Maritime and Coastal Agency prior to being re-floated. Boxer, a workboat, requires some tlc from the volunteers and the other tugs were checked and re-floated on the day.

Our grateful thanks to all involved!
