Ships Blog 2/4/2014

DSC_0108-600-x-400Welcome to the midweek Ships Blog. Bright hazy sunshine after quite an overcast start. This pattern seems to be staying pretty much the same  for the next few days with winds from the East going round to the South West over the weekend. Also there will be a little more wind as well in the next few days. We still have the dredger ‘Shoreway’ working in the harbour. The Environment Agency’s survey boat ‘Thames Guardian is due in the marina this evening staying a few days as part of her normal rotation of surveying in the Thames.

In the yard boats already launched are ‘Pennifold’ and the ex sea school motor boat ‘Finesse II’ which is on brokerage. A reminder for everyone if you are down at the marina during the week working on your boat then always ‘touch base’ so to speak with Andy and Craig in the yard just so that you can park any vehicles you have out of the way of the travel hoist. As you will appreciate things are getting busy with boats being lifted back in for Easter.
