This sunken boat on the Grand Union Canal posed a large challenge to its owners. The 37ft flat-bottomed working boat sank in the middle of the canal in January 2020, possibly after another boat collided with it.

When CBS were engaged to lift the sunken boat in July, the water was 2ft over the gunwale and the boat’s transom was firmly stuck in the mud.

Feedback from the client: “It was amazing how they raised it. So polite and nice to all the passers by… We will definitely recommend the guys.”
