Crick 2024 - Top coat going on!

7th February 2024

With the Ovation Team taking two boats to Crick this year, a total of four narrowboats are currently being fitted out at the Redhill workshop!

As all Ovation Boats are hand painted that means the paint brushes & rollers are well and truly out!!

Here we see John Henty in the paint booth, carefully rollering on the first layer of top coat onto our yet unnamed 60ft 'Charnwood Edge', whilst the affectionately named 'Arfer', our 42ft, all electric 'Charnwood Hobbit', is in the main workshop being prepared for the insulation.


John: carefully does it!
