Come late 2014 and Knighthood Insurance approached us and asked if they could run an article about us in their newsletter.
With over 30 years’ experience it is hardly surprising that Knighthood is widely acknowledged as a leading specialist Marine Underwriter with clients throughout the UK, Southern Ireland and Northern Europe insuring Vessels on the high seas and in local bays, estuaries and rivers. Knighthood is probably best known for the insurance of passenger boats but their expertise also embraces all forms of Marine Insurance for commercial boats. As our insurers they have always taken a keen interest in our progress and indeed go back with us to the days when our first approach to them was to ask one of their underwriters, Gordon Westcott if they would insure ‘ a thatched barge on the Thames opposite Parliament’. Suffice to say, as the article records, this did raise a few eyebrows. The article then moved bang up to date, we had got our River Works Licence at time of press, and was really enthusiastic and supportive of our work.
Richard has been working with The November Project as an adviser on our campaigning and environmental strategies A veteran campaigner with a passion for the polar oceans and the Patagonian toothfish, we lured Richard to the inland waters of The Thames where we have benefited greatly from his knowledge, expertise and encouragement You can follow him @OceansRichard
We want to thank Derek Albiston for the amazing work he has done editing our business plan. Derek has worked in publishing for years – we will spare his blushes and not say how many, but working on a renewable energy project was a first for him. It is testament to his skills as an editor that he got up to speed with us and our work really quickly and in a few weeks produced a fully proof read plan ready to go. The finished article is highly professional and like every good iceberg – all the work lies under the surface of the carefully chosen words and phrases that lie on the top
