September 2016 - Dicks Folly was taken to P&S Marine at Croxley
Green to be taken out of the water so the hull could be shot blasted,
repaired and re-painted. They also made a few modifications to the
plumbing while the boat was there. Dicks Folly is now ready for more
years of service on the canal.
