Welding Category Blog Posts by the Floating Boatyard in London, Essex and Hertfordshire.

This category covers welding works carried out by the Floating Boatyard. We offer all kinds of metalwork services, from big to small projects. Floating Boatyard is, to our knowledge, the only company permitted by CRT to carry out welding works on their waters. We fully risk assess all projects and are insured to carry out hot works. We are also able to come into marinas and boatyards to work.

The Floating Boatyard offer maintenance, repairs and painting for canal boats and narrowboat bilges on the inland waterways and canals in the UK. All boat works are undertaken from our orange ex British Waterways workboat. We operate on the river Lea in East London, North London, Essex and Hertfordshire. The business is set up as a worker-owned cooperative with a charitable focus.

Boat welding is specialised as no boat is the same. We are often working with old steel, often corroded, which is harder to work with. We are experienced with metalwork on boats, as you can see from this category.
