Sometimes the narrowboat will be too far gone and will need scrapping. We will then have to transport the boat to somewhere that it can be chopped up. Ideally back to us in Portsmouth.
As you can imagine moving a 60ft Narrowboat can be a costly business as it’s a large item to transport. Most will be inland and to get them to a breakers yard like us on the coast will add costs.
The inland waterways are designed to move these narrowboats around on so moving a boat by water isn’t much of an issue. As long as the boats engine runs, if it doesn’t we may need to tow the barge which will add to the costs.
