This project is supported by the award winning Overwater Marina in
Audlem - Inland Marina of the Year 2015 - who have kindly
donated a specially built dock and is the operational centre for the
Overwater Wheelyboat. Situated in the beautiful Cheshire countryside and
with a full range of disabled facilities and on-site cafe, makes the
marina the perfect base.
The Wheelyboat Project was started in 2015 by Rodney Cottrell who started the RNLI Audlem Lass
in 2011 and has carried over 4,000 passengers every year
from Overwater Marina into Audlem village, with donations from
passengers going to the RNLI.
This new charitable enterprise is a separate project that stands on its own and
looks forward to being as great a success as the Audlem Lass.
