The Boss is back, the ‘skiver’ is back from Australia and there’s an overwhelming sense of Christmas coming early in the office. We love each other really, no matter what we say! So, to celebrate this great reunion, I shall tell you what the install and warehouse team have been up to while the rest have been away….
The boys have been busy over the last couple of weeks and had a few projects to complete. The biggest by far was Torridge District Council who needed a 170m security barrier. This was built over the course of a few days, with a variety of marker buoys (640 x 430 and B50s at 45cm dia.), chains and rope. No mean feat that one, but great to get it in as it’s been bubbling for a while. While they were passing the area, a couple of additional accessories went on to two current pontoons down in Langport and Dartmouth in the form of two ladders. With the weeks as we’re having, it’s good to be able to help out customers if we’re in the area. It saves time for both of us and a bit of cash for them too.
Next was an easier delivery for a returning customer from last year who wanted exactly the same again. A 3.5m x 3.5m rental cube pontoon, with which (we believe) he will stand a Christmas decoration on for the public to enjoy in Chiswick.
The boys went up to Suffolk for a big install with three Rotodock sections, complete with cleats, a gangway, handrails and pile moorings for a private customer who needed to substantially increase the ease of access into and out of his boat. It was a long job over the course of a few days, but we completed within our deadline and the team commented on how nice it is to install for a gentleman who, in his later years, still so enjoys his days on the water.
Finally, our Exbury Gardens pontoons got well underway these past couple of weeks as the team connected the Rotodocks together, cut the decking and almost finished building it all together.
A huge variety of jobs have been completed and we’re so proud of this. At this time last year, we weren’t half as busy and it’s very exciting seeing how far we’ve come in just a year. What a difference a couple of hugely efficient extra workers can be, and what a great team has been created, if I do say so myself, being a part of that team! ……. I’m gushing, so had better just wish you all a very happy weekend ahead. It’s December now so (in my humble opinion) Christmas shopping can officially begin!
Have a great one!
