Posted by on Jun 16, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

Otter is ready to be launched in 7 days time. Our second boat Otter is now fully fitted out and the engine installed. The team are finishing off the last few things that need doing Monday morning before her Boat Safety inspection that afternoon. We plan to launch her into the river Severn at 8 o’clock in the morning next Saturday (20th June). She will then be tested for the next 10 days before being available for hire from 1st July. Thanks to everyone who has booked and enjoyed a day out on Badger and to all who have pre-booked days out on both Badger & Otter. We have just purchased our third boat which will be available for 3 & 4 night breaks from 1st March 2016. Here’s hoping for a safe and successful launch – more details and pictures will follow...
