Boating Shed

December 31, 2009   


When I got to Rothera in November there were 6 boats on base. However, we have parred down to 3 RIBS. The three flat bottomed inflatables were a little worse for wear. Two were not really repairable and were taking up room in the boatshed while the three good boats were sitting outside in the UV. So now we sent two back to the UK for disposal, one to the falklands for a project on some lakes and to be sold and are left with Erebus, Stella and Terra Nova. A nice little fleet that can fit in the shed. Hoping for a new boat next season as there are four major uses for the boats so another would make life easier – Diving, Terrestrial science, Seach and Rescue and CTD work.
