Warwickshire Fly Boat Co. has a long history of specialising in the repair and refurbishment of working narrow boats. Latterly a number of new boats have been constructed incorporating the shape,character and good swimming and handling characteristics of the originals. Needless to say that the majority of the boats on our moorings reflect this.
Our dry dock is operated by Stockton Dry Dock Co. (01926814441, email Graeme email@example.com) who continue to undertake refurbishment,repairs and replicas.Currently the motorised Baildon is being restored to its original butty status..Two BCN day boats have been completely refurbished using modern and original hot rivetting tecniques and may be seen in use at the Black Country Museum.
Warwickshire Fly Boat Co. operate moorings on the main line of the Grand Union canal, and on the Kayes Arm. We have a number of interesting boats on our moorings currently, including original working boats,restorable hulls and newer replicas,with rebuilt vintage engines of course!
