Over the winter we decided to refurbish Oceanlord. Every single panel of the interior headlining has been removed – the insides of the hull sanded flat, every panel replaced and reupholstered and refitted. Whilst she was disassembled we replaced most of the wiring and updated the lighting to modern LED lighting. Every hatch and window was removed and either refurbished or replaced and then re-bedded to ensure a leak free boat before reinstalling all the new panels and new fabric upholstery. If you have booked a week on Oceanlord this year we are sure you will be absolutely delighted with her. If you haven’t booked a week yet then there are one or two early and late season weeks still available.
Well this one did !!!
This is a lovely story from one of our clients who chartered our Westerly OceanRanger ‘Clear Blue’ from us in the Summer of 2018. Its a great adventure and the illustrations are superb. Click here to read about their adventures round the top of Scotland.

We completed one of our more unusual requests today! There is a prototype tidal power electricity generating platform being tested in the Falls of Lora and we were asked to make guard wires and safety lines for it to prevent visitors falling in the drink. The quote was submitted on Weds, order placed for all the swaged fittings on Thursday – parts arrived Friday (Big Thank You to the boys at Sta-Lok rigging!) – Tim and I made all the parts on Friday from our detailed measurements and on Saturday we fitted all the wires. We were VERY pleased that every wire was the right length – first time ! It looks great and we were very pleased to be able to help out the company behind the project – the whole setup will eventually be dismantled after testing and shipped out to South East Asia where it will be permanently installed. More information about this interesting project is here.
I have shared a video (that I really made for fun !) with a few friends, and they have all said I should show it to a wider audience! So here you are !
