Do It Yourself Boat Yard
Here at Iron Wharf boatyard we have seen some incredible projects, from complete restoration to complicated repairs. It's not all tricky stuff though, boats come for new anodes, re-paints, sea cock checks, engine services, welding, mast replacement. The list is endless. Contact us to see how we can help and accommodate your needs.
We had our christmas party at The Anchor in Faversham and it was an outstanding afternoon. The food was incredible and the company wasn't bad either. Our quiz master excelled himself by producing a fun and interesting set of questions and then the carol competition pitching girls against boys. The finale however was our very own Alan Reekie, giving a solo performance.
Alan Reekie, Peter Dodds and the Team would like to wish our friends and customers a Happy Christmas, with fair winds, warm fires and time to relax. We've had a busy year, making new friends, carrying out improvements to the yard and seeing some incredible vessels, large and small through various projects.
A special thank you to the team for their efforts and skills, as without them the work couldn't continue.
We hope you can all spare a thought for the emergency services, including the RNLI, working throughout the holidays, to keep us safe.
See you in the new year, with best wishes,
Iron Wharf Boatyard.
Toby, one of our Managers mentioned the Cutty Sark as an interesting item for our readers.
There is a connection with the famous writer Robert Burns, who created a character in his Poem Tam O’Shanter’.
A farmer called Tam is pursued by a scantiiy clad Nannie Dee, who was in-fact a witch. She was wearing an undergarment, which in the 18th Century was known as a Cutty-sark.
The figurehead of the Tea Clipper Cutty Sark is named after Nannie Dee. What does she hold in her hand ?
