Wide Beam Barge

Being based on the coast we don’t very often work on canal boats however this wide beam barge is the latest arrival for an internal refit at Ipswich. It is certainly a blank canvas and the owners have some fabulous interior design ideas. Watch this space for progress. The lift out was interesting as being steel she weighs more than our normal customers. We are going to place her in our shelterit tent while the works are carried out for maximum protection from the elements.
