The boatyard is currently run by Stuart Hodges. It is mainly used for in/out of water repairs, maintenance, blacking, signwriting, and painting. The pump out facilities are no longer available and coal etc are no longer for sale. Planning applications have been submitted for change of use to the land to residential housing so sadly this might become another loss to boaters.
