ABC POWERMARINE – CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

10th November 2020

We are open as usual and are operating all our services during the current period of Welsh Government's "national regulations".

 

Chandlery: we are open and are operating our mail order service as usual via our webstore at www.abcstore.co.uk , eBay and by telephone on 01248 811 001. If you are shielding and wish to avoid contact, we will be pleased to make goods available for collection from us or the petrol station.

Workshop: we are operating normally and are undertaking all work as usual. Please call us on 01248 811 001 to discuss any requirements you may have.

Yard: we have slightly reduced staffing in the yard, but the boat hoist remains in operation for hauling out boats and we can tow vessels from their moorings if required. The tractor launch service is operational for all boats, but due to reduced staffing we would appreciate a couple of days' notice for this service to ensure that we have staff available. The boatyard is accessible to customers and vehicles.

 

English Lockdown: while we are now operating all our services, we appreciate that many of our customers will be affected by the lockdown that has been imposed in England.

As usual, Welsh Government guidance is not particularly specific, but an exemption is given to allow people to come to Wales to secure their caravans for winter; and we would assume that this should also apply to securing boats for winter. We have, however, not found a similar exeption in English regulations. 

On this basis, our position is: we are happy for all our customers to visit their boats to secure them for winter (or for other similar purposes), but we advise anyone usually resident in England to check local regulations and use their own judgement as to what may be allowed. 

If any boat owners feel that they are not able to visit their vessels due to the English (or indeed the Welsh) regulations, please be assured that we continue to regularly check the yard; and if any of our customers wish for any particular checks to be carried out on their vessel, please call us on 01248 811001 and we will be pleased to help.

 

Stay safe.
