Cat C Kingsley Widebeam Craning into the Water

11th April 2017


In the heat of the Sun we watched as the new Cat C Kingsley was craned into the water at Braunston Marina. This was an exciting time as she was now completed and after months of planning and building she was finally going into the water.

Once she was safely lowered and in the water, the checks were completed and the crane slings were then removed. We got ourselves a well earned brew and prepared to move her to her temporary moorings before the Crick Boat Show at the end of May.

With the Director at the helm we cruised her the 6 miles down the winding canal and narrow bridges of the Grand Union, before arriving at the moorings. On this short cruise the boat handled really well and we are looking forward to moving her again towards the end of May.
