Dry docking and blacking 

The dry dock at Norbury Junction was originally the first of seventeen locks that led down into Newport and beyond. After the closure of the Newport Canal the dry dock was constructed. Today the dock is completely covered and enclosed but large windows let plenty of natural light into the building, although adequate artificial lighting is also installed for those darker days! Due to its depth the bostocks (that's the blocks that the boat sits down on to when the water is removed) are about three feet high which allows for easy inspection of the base plate and sit the boat at an ideal level to work at. 
We dock on both Wednesdays and Sundays throughout the year. 
Below are some of the works that our experienced engineers can complete to a high standard: 
Pressure washing with 3000psi industrial pressure washer 
Hull blacking with Bitumen, International Intertuf 16 or Comastic 
Sand/shot blasting and subsequent application of two-pack epoxy paint
