Quick turnaround by Fox’s saves children’s sailing holiday
Mid way through their busy summer sail training schedule, Adventures Offshore discovered a problem with the shaft and P-bracket on their Oyster 49 sail training vessel, Offshore Scout. A quick call to the engineering team at Fox’s and Offshore Scout was delivered to the yard where she was hauled and inspected. Fox’s Engineering supervisor, Karl Evans, confirmed she needed a new shaft and cutlass bearings and relaminating and setting up of the P-bracket. A new shaft was made by local firm, Clement Engineering, and fitted by Fox’s. The boat was re-launched and handed over within the week, much to the delight of the young crew who departed Fox’s for Ramsgate on route to Holland.
Adventures Offshore Operations Manager, Judy Harrison commented:
“We cannot praise Fox’s enough for the very speedy way they took on the task and completed it within the week. The boat is now on her way from Dunkirk to Ostend with a young crew who are enjoying a holiday that started at Fox’s instead of Amsterdam, but are only too aware that were it not for the hard work of the staff at Fox’s they wouldn’t be having a holiday at all.”
