    Even better if they re-instated the stream that I remember doing some scouring.

    Further to the recent posts an update from Watchet. The parts arrived from the States in late November and the re-built impeller unit returned to Watchet just before Christmas. Our engineers are now working flat out to match the old with the new and we're expecting re-commence dredging by early February at the latest. We will then dredge, subject to the weather, at least 5 days a week to re-instate initially our B/C basin back to working depth. Once this is done the team will then continue around the marina in general. I would like to apologise for the inconvenience and please rest assured we are doing everything possible to rectify the situation. Iain Lambert, Manager, Watchet Harbour Marina
