2007 IWA National Festival and Boat Show

22nd August 2007

 

Please excuse the exposure of some of these images as not only was it a very dull day but also some of them were taken in the early evening on the 22nd August.

A different jib

Into position

     

Lifting commences

Up and over the fence

And a new boat is launched

Move it out of the way

     

The images below are of some of the other narrow boat lifts of the day
