THE TRUST REGRETS THAT THERE WILL BE NO BOAT TRIPS RUNNING DURING THE 2018 SEASON
‘Following a routine ultrasound survey of the hull, the steel plates were found to have become worn to an un-acceptable thickness. Given the age and limited size of the boat in conjunction with a number of other factors, the Trust considers that re-plating is impracticable at this time. Consequently it is with much regret that the boat will be withdrawn from service for the 2017 season pending a review of its future use. Please be aware that the cost of re-plating is not a primary factor in its withdrawal.’
PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER, SAILINGS CAN BE SUBJECT TO SHORT NOTICE CANCELLATION
