The plans for the refurb of Kilsby are ongoing. This month it spent time in the dry dock getting a survey. The results were promising.
Some members of the Oxford Canal Trust appeared last week to inspect the hull and discuss the next stage.
The hull is going back in to the dry dock in October to be 'slippered' to replace the wooden bottom with a steel shoe.
The the back end, which seems not to be original is very poorly constructed, will be mostly replaced.
The good news is the engine bearers are in excellent condition! 😂😂😂😂
