We would like to advise that due to the boat lift being closed until approx. Easter, to keep our communication clear and easy to find, all updates will now be issued on a single notice. Notice reference number 22897 (this can be found in the web address bar at the top of the screen)

No further updates will be issued to this notice. 


A stoppage is required to carry out essential maintenance to change the seals on both of the main hydraulic rams. The rams will need to be split from the caissons, polished, seals changed, and other maintenance items to extend the life of the rams. Substantial temporary works are currently envisaged for this work which means the lift will not be able to operate.
