SS Orcadia beached by the West Pier

A Tom Kent picture, date unknown.

Boats beached for maintenance by the West Pier or on the shore nearby were a common occurence until comparatively recently. With the coastal protection along the Ayre Road and the marina development there is not really a good place to do this near the pier any more, other than in the Basin in front of the Girnel for smaller boats.
