Painting Catmint
A great job, from our initial meeting and advice to completion. The boat looks like new.
Many thanks to Dave Hall and to his team at King’s Lock Boatyard, Middlewich.
As the work progressed I got regular updates and photos. This was in addition to my own visits to the boatyard during the preparation and painting. I was reassured to see how safe and secure my boat was at the boatyard, as I know this can be a worry for boat owners.
Also, I’m delighted that Dave put me in touch with Robin Wagg, professional signwriter. The artwork on the boat is exceptional.
Highly recommended.

A Really Good Job

Hi Dave, we just wanted to say thanks for the work you did on our boat.

We are really pleased with the 2 Pack and are very reassured by the report you gave us on the state of the hull and it was nice to be told that we didn’t need new Anodes.

We are also very grateful that you sorted out the problem with the tiller. We’ve had all sorts of advice about how to fix the play in the rudder, some of it conflicting. Your solution of one spot weld has fixed it.

Finally the lift back to the marina to collect our car was very helpful.

Thanks again.

Capable Hands

Fantastic job, thanks Dave,
We were so pleased with the hull blacking job, skilfully done at a very reasonable price. We felt our boat was in capable hands and you are such a pleasant person to deal with as nothing was too much trouble. We highly recommend you and Slipway Services.

Thanks David after 2 bodged attempts elsewhere, we were worried about our third one in 3 years. It was a relief to be reassured from the start by someone who seemed to care. Information gave us with regards to the problems we have had and what you were going to do was excellent. To see the stages it had been through on Facebook and then the finished article was good but seeing it in the flesh as they say was brilliant. Thank you. Elizabeth Munnery nb Puddleducks

Professional Job

Hi Dave, I just want to say a big thank you for all the hard work i.e. Stripping back the hull and applying 2 pack epoxy and fitting new anodes. This was a professional job to the highest standards and 4 years on the coating is still doing its job.  Maggie Champion nb Brigadoon
