Ships a-high for fleet in­spec­tion

Canal Boat - - News -

WITH a 250 tonne crane and plenty of op­ti­mism, Ch­esterBoat hauled their three work­ing pas­sen­ger boats out of the River Dee and for a win­ter over­haul with bal­lasts re­moved and floor­ing lifted for the strip­down.

The Lady Diana, The Mark Twain and The Jackie – weigh­ing a com­bined 84 tonnes – will be in­spected by the Mar­itime and Coast­guard Agency will carry out run­ning tri­als, check­ing the engines, steer­ing and safety equip­ment.
