At Norton Canes Boatbuilders we have the facilities and equipment to offer a wide range of Boatyard Services, a detailed summary of those services can be found in the articles below.
At our Glascote Basin site on the Coventry Canal we have a purpose built dry dock that can accommodate narrowboats up to 72ft and sufficient depth for deeper draughted boats.
We ensure that all boats that are out for blacking are on the dock for at least 6 days to allow adequate time for paint to cure. We reserve Mondays for surveys to be undertaken and emergancy repairs.
Norton Canes Boatbuilders specialise in painting Narrowboats to the highest standard using quality materials and paint to create a long lasting finish.
We have been grit blasting the hull and superstructure of our boats for over 20 years, the boats that we grit blasted all those years ago often turn up at the yard. From our observations of the hull and superstructures, these boats are always in excellent condition and goes to show how important this process is to protecting the steelwork of your boat.
