  1. I'm glad we were able to fit you in, we look forward to seeing you soon!
  2. Hi Love my boat!! We are based at Langley Mill at the top of the Erewash, which is about 6 hours from Trent Lock, we can provide serviced blacking or DIY, and are fully insured for you to stay on board whilst in dock. Our current price for serviced blacking is £8.50 per ft, including all docking fees, pressure washing and two coats of bitumen up to and including the guard. Bowthruster tubes and weedhatches are also included. Our DIY rates are £100 for day 1 and £40 per day after. Sadly we can't offer a blasting service if you were thinking of heading down that route. here's a link to our website if you are interested: Dry Dock – Langley Mill Boatyard Ltd We have a couple of gaps in the diary but they are booking up, feel free to give Vikki a call in the office, o1773 76o758, we are in and out a bit at the moment so feel free to leave a voicemail and we will get back to you. I hope this is of some help to you. @David Mackmany thanks for the mention! Kind regards Dan
  3. he has kept it in the livery she was painted for the film, they wanted to cut a porthole in the port side of the cabin i was led to believe which, to no surprise was refused so it was made by props and attached with magnets hence why it sticks out so much......

  5. in other news, local shops are reporting increases in sales of bed sheets and crayons as passive aggressive banners are being made along the length of the the towpath. Local cafes however have reported a drop in takings due to the remaining crayons being eaten........
  6. We recently had a new build (4 years old) on dock. paid a premium for 2 pack. Mill scale wasn't removed. in the end having seen the rest of the 2 pack fall off due to a slight bit of wind which wouldn't register on the Beaufort scale, ripping it off in sheets, we scabbled and brick cleaner-ed the hull to remove all trace of millscale. and started again. I feel its one of the biggest boatbuilding cons the 2 pack dream, unless they can prove its been properly surface prepped it ain't worth the spondoolies to pay for it.
  7. it an interesting argument with wooden boats. I feel she should, if no one takes her on seriously, be transferred to the off site storage facility at Ellesmere Port as an example of a wooden Josher which so few of are extant. the argument of scrap value is an interesting one. we dismantled Beech in 2020 and are still using the wood that was salvageable , and her ironwork has gone on to be repurposed for other things but being kept as a set. at the boatyard we also have a social space called 'The Beech Hut' made from.....you know what......
  8. it depends...... IF this is how BW did the work then all too many get chopped and a modern stern is put on, and more examples of this period of history is lost. I suspect she would have been like this longer than as a working butty. I can't remember which butty she was, the information will be there somewhere.
  9. we use Craftmaster when we paint tunnel bands at Langley Mill.......
  10. i don't think they have ever not been for sale. They're due a docking now though.
  11. Congratulations on Margaret's new purchase.......................😂
