  • What type of CO alarm to buy,

Boat Lift Out and In 2019/20


This year the boat lift out will take place on 26th October 2019 at 0900 hrs.


However, due to the proposed work to extend the Harbour car park, which is hoped will commence in February 2020, boats will only be out of the water for three months.


The boat lift in will therefore take place on 25th January 2020 at 1100 hrs.


* Limited Boat Lifts *

We are also limiting the number of boats lifted out this year to 10, which will be on a first come basis.


If you require your boat to be lifted out, please let us know as soon as you can.
