11.01.2021 - Government guidance on boat maintenance during lockdown  -  Maintaining second homes, caravans, boats and other assets is not generally a reasonable excuse for leaving home. However, people may leave home to secure their second home, caravan or boat in order to avoid it posing a risk of harm/injury to themselves or others.

11.01.2021 - Latest Government advice for recreational boating - British Marine have had it confirmed by the UK Government that boating is a form of exercise and therefore is an accepted excuse to leave home in England. There are several important caveats to this, primarily that members of the public cannot travel out of their local area to reach their vessel and that all exercise must be done in line with government guidance i.e. can only be done with members of 1 household/bubble or one other and social distancing is maintained. Members of the public are urged to check with the local navigation authority, harbour authorities and the Marinas for local rules before travelling to their vessels.

Should you become aware of work needing attention before launching, please let Mark know  -  Email - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  please.  You need to be ready to launch!

Our aim is - when allowed, your boats will be ready to launch!

As a reminder – our Staff are following the rules, only travelling to work if they cannot work from home, always observing social distancing & taking all other necessary precautions to help stop the spread of the Virus, unless there are further changes from Government

Thank you for your support & busines in these difficult times & for following Government guidelines. 

Stay safe  -  COVID-19 IS ABOUT  -  HANDS - FACE - SPACE

Please rest assured that the Trout Team are looking after your boats while you are at home.
