Winter maintenance in action

Friday, October 5th, 2012

It’s that time of year again for the Whitehaven Marina team to commence the Winter Maintenance Programme.  Work has begun on the South Harbour Pontoons with three of the five already pressure washed in the first week of October.

Over the coming weeks, the team will continue to pressure wash the pontoons as well as replacing damaged boards, fixing cleats, cleaning bollards and replacing emergency pods that need attention.  In addition they will also be cleaning the Bulwark Quay and Boatyard.

If you have any specific requests or suggestions for us to look at please don’t hesitate to contact Marina Supervisor, Tony Taylor.
