Masts and convoy dates

Due to time constraints masts cannot be unstepped on a Saturday so please book a mast unstepping date with this office before your convoy date. Unstepping fee £34.60 per half hour.

Masts under 10m (off the water line) do not need to be unstepped if not required.

Please arrange for this to be done in advance of your passage through the canal by contacting the Waterways Office on (01392) 265791 or by email river.canal@exeter.gov.uk  

 

Craning dates

The first Saturday craning will be 30 October.  If you need to be out of the water please:

  • book with the Waterways Office on (01392) 265791
  • AND contact Spence Crane Hire on (01626) 824645 to arrange craning onto the quay

Craning dates are subject entirely to customer demand and crane availability. You may wish to use an alternative certificated crane company during other times but all arrangements will need to be confirmed by the Waterways Office to ensure Council Operatives attend all boat lifts. The dates are:

  • Saturday 30 October, 0730 start
  • Saturday 13 November, 0730 start
  • Saturday 20 November, 0730 start

It would helpful for us to know your craning plans as soon as possible so that we can provide sufficient staff for the busy Saturday lifts. We also look forward to receiving your locking-in, mast striking and convoy bookings at your earliest convenience.

Please inform us if you are unable to keep your arrival time on (01392) 265791 or via river.canal@exeter.gov.uk thank you.
