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.
The Bridge 19-40 Union Canal Society is part of The Big Splash, an appeal to help support the many small waterway-based charitiesin our local communities to ensure their survival during these unprecedented times.
Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, and the difficulty in maintaining social distancing on a narrowboat, we regret that we are unable to offer boat trips in 2020. We can still be contacted by telephone, email or via our facebook page.
