Tosh Bawden driving Polruan Ferry

It is with great sadness that we share the news that our Ferry Foreman, Tosh, passed away last night.

Tosh had worked on Polruan Ferry for over 25 years and will be sorely missed by us all.

Our thoughts are with his family.

New 220T boat hoist has arrived

New 220T Boat hoist at C Toms & Son Polruan

Our new 220T boat hoist has arrived on site this week.

The hoist was manufactured by BoatLift in Italy and shipped to Fowey before being brought to site on the Bodinnick car ferry.

The next step in the project will be the construction of the jetties that the boat hoist will run on. This will take place during from late July until mid September.

In early September, a team from BoatLift will arrive to assembly the hoist and train our team in how to operate it.

You can follow progress of this project in the Boat Hoist album on our Facebook page.
