Amerton makes it’s debut

Canal and River Trust workboat Amerton set sail to Stoke from Aqueduct Marina on Thursday 2nd August to be showcased as part of the prestigious Touring Poppies art exhibition in Middleport Potteries.

After receiving the brand-new C&RT vinyls and full rebuild by our maintenance team, the boat made its debut in our marina before making its short journey down south on the back of a lorry to the exhibition…

 

As part of the refurbishments our maintenance team carried out extensive restoration to the tired vessel including completely rebuilding parts of hull and superstructure that with many years of arduous work had failed and was beyond repair…

New systems were also introduced including a new engine, craft location indicator and cruising equipment and the cabins were given a new lease of life with stylish yet practical accommodation creating a comfortable working environment for her crew.

Commenting on the success Chris Moran, General Manager said ‘It is essential that all craft are fit for purpose and can withstand the harsh environments they are subject to. All aspects of these vessels have been developed in collaboration with C&RT and other contractors and the combined effort has resulted in a boat that we believe in and will serve the waterways team well for many years to come.

Amerton first came to the marina from Nuneaton transported from Boot Wharf. Work started immediately with a good pressure wash before all the existing equipment and internal cabin fit-out was completely removed.

Following the welding and fabrication work being completed, which forms the initial stage of the process, a new hard wearing 2 Pac paint system was applied on blast cleaned steel in our purpose-built workshops.

Amerton is to be moored in Longport Wharf for the duration of the 6-week event in the presence of Canal and River Trust volunteers, before being moved to the West Midlands to start it’s new working life. Approximately 40 years old the reconstruction has now provided an additional 20 year’s life.
