Every four years, Bluebell,, like every other canal boat, requires to be dry docked, to carry out a BSS examination (Boat Safety Scheme). This is to allow the hull, propeller and rudder of the vessel to be inspected for insurance purposes.
The Seagull Trust based at Ratho have allowed us to use their dry dock.
Due to the fact we have put our passenger boat, Bluebell up for sale (see explanation under Welcome on our home page), we regret that we are unable to offer boat trips in 2022 We will be starting a Fundraising campaign to raise funds to purchase a new passenger carrying boat. We can still be contacted by telephone, email or via our facebook page.
Please follow us on facebook for updates on the current situation and canal news in general.
