Flipping the Tilbury Work Boat

Every year our work boat is stripped down, painted both inside and out and prepared for another season of hard work. Thanks to the Town and our volunteers this turns into a fun and productive activity.

Liferaft Certification

The 12 man life raft will soon be certified and ready for remounting on the Peerless. This is a heavy, time consuming and expensive job which must be done every 2 years. We are fortunate to have the Local Fire Dept. help us keep the tour boat safe every season.

Now the boat is flipped, it has to be lifted again and set back on the trailer. Thanks to all who were able to come out and help. More pictures and movies are available if you click on the Facebook link found on our first page.
