How Much Antifoul Do You Spray Onto My Boat?
We spray 2 full coats & a 3rd around the leading / trailing edges & waterline


Do You Deliver Vessels?
We drive vessels from the Club's Marina or from the work berths located near the travelift. We give you a call the day before your lift to advise of your lift time. If you deliver your boat we offer complimentary berthing. Please advise at the time of your booking that you will require a berth and the Club to drive it around on the day of lift.


Do You Tow Vessels instead Of Drive Them?
No. Unless the vessel does not have an engine we insist on driving the vessel as it is too dangerous to tow vessels into the narrow travelift pen.  If you don’t want your vessel driven by our staff you will need to deliver it yourself.
