June 2021 – Newsletter
This month, we have been busy in our Birkenhead workshop as we have received many pleasure craft repairs from sailing clubs in the local area. As life slowly begins to return to some form of normality, it’s great to see private boat owners returning to the water and enjoying life on the water.
Each month we will be asking a member some ‘meet the team’ questions. This month is the turn of our new Digital Media/Service Support Charlotte McCarthy.

Pleasure Craft Maintenance Page
We have recently received repair requests for small Pleasure Craft propellers from sailing clubs in our local area. As lockdown is easing, more privately owned boats are on the water and require some minor repairs. We have created a dedicated Pleasure Craft page with more information regarding our drop & collect service at our Birkenhead Workshop.
