Willow Boat Painting is a great little team headed up by mum and son Sally and Alex with much able assistance from Rich Dovbenko and Charlotte Seabrook. Charlotte is also working with Martyn King to develop her skills as a signwriter following her university studies in Fine Art.
"All the boats we work on are prepared back to metal" Says Sally. "We can be confident then that all the paint layers are applied effectively and with paints which are compatible with each other."
"I love it when the top coat goes on so smoothly that people ask is it still wet?" Says Alex.
The greatest compliment we get? People coming back for more when they buy another boat!
All the narrowboats pictured to the right are "Just out the door" they all belong to our new friends on the water. So for "Shiny new you!" just call in to discuss how we can help.
