Our new Roodberg HBC20 Boat Parker has now been completed at the factory in Holland and we are awaiting delivery. The HBC20 has been purchased with our customers many varied boat shapes and sizes and our narrow site in mind, it has excellent manoeuvrability and is capable of lifting 20 tonnes. The HBC20 also boasts a galvanised frame so it can be fully submersed should we one day have our own slipway. It will be driven by our Claas Telehandler. 

Complex technical issues regarding our new dock are very nearly complete and progress is being made. The geology of our site has provided some extra challenges as it is very difficult to build on. I am pleased to confirm we are working with some excellent people and have addressed these issues to ensure the dock will last for hundreds of years. Work will start on the concrete apron for the washdown area and shore side foundation within weeks. 

Our season opener barbecue was well attended despite some gusty winds and raised £300 for St Oswalds Hospice. Raffle prizes ranged from a bottle of Kraken Rum, A £50 Amble Marina voucher, wine and chocolates, all prize winners have been notified.

Next event: Heaviest Fish Competition on Saturday 3rd June 2017, £5 per person entry. First prize is the 'kitty' capped at £50. More prizes on the day depending on number of entrants. Registration from 0730 - 0800.  Weigh In at 1530. Both at Marina Office.

The following weekend Saturday 10th June our visitors from Blackpool & Morecambe will be here with their day fishing boats - there will be a prize for the heaviest fish caught that weekend. Competitions are open to Amble Marina Berth Holders and their crew.
