Hi David,
 
Indeed, thanks Pioneer for sorting, the NHMF is as the web-site says, for "emergencys" and yes there are or were issues with the Heritage Protection Bill, now laid off, with getting protection for moving ships, NHMF also turned down LST Stalker, however, no harm in applying, but again as mentioned, timescale might be to short for them to respond...

A quick thought chaps. Could the medusa trust be any help for a short term berth if the funds to truck arent ready in time? Could a truck get to their slipway ect?

 Count me in for a few days work & if you dont take her i will. Lets hope it all goes to plan & she's soon in the capable hands of newsons. Look forward to seeing this project developThumbs%20Up

A boat is a hole in the water surrounded by wood, into which one throws money

Good morning,
 
SERIOUS PROBLEM.
 
The width of MTB 245 is 19 foot 6 inches.
 
The maximum permissable on the roads is 15 foot 9 inches.
 
We are therefore unable to transport this boat by road to Lowestoft.
 
The options will no doubt be well aired, but the realistic outcome will be that we cannot afford any of those options. (Towage,Barge etc)
 
Richard Basey and David Earle-Payne are advised of the situation.
 
I am sorry to have to be the bearer of this bad news.

I thought STGO means that up to 6.1 mtrs (a tad over 20 ft) could be carried with some extra paperwork and maybe an escort?
 
That Sunseeker they put on the roundabout for Southampton Boat Show is huge!

Although it does appear to be unlikely, I am in touch with a company which specialises in obtaining exceptional permissions for road transport. It will be very hard to obtain these permissions, but they haven't written it off just yet!

Hi there,
 
Just seen latest ex Richard, I do hope we can get this sorted, burgendyben might have something, these big motor boats must be beamy, but of course may well cost more, I would hope for just a metre we would not need escort vehicles and a hold load of...but we shall see,

Hi David,
 
Appreciate you may well be snowed, sorry to add, what a b****r, had a look at the site ex Burgundyben, 6m may just do it? have just asked the question of a haulier this end, Kent, I am not in any way setting anything up, just asking for information, not serioulsy suggesting they would do it, plenty of boat haulage down there of course, really want to be of some help, but of course you know the score, please don't think I am suggesting anything else, do understand you don't want well meaning people getting in the way!
 
Regards
 
John

Just a thought........
It's interesting that ideas come in as fast as they do, from all differing angles and view - points, such as 'Burgundy Ben' and 'garethep' putting up web addresses (which have both been very informative and helpful) could I ask for the purposes of the 245 project, that any ideas etc. put forward could be attributed with a level of knowledge from the contributor, i.e. are you a professional / amateur / or just very interested, because the time scale for this project is so limited we have to prioritise the avenues to follow. This is in no way intended to stop the ideas flowing, it just may speed things up.
 
many thanks,
David Earle-Payne

Hi David,
 
Indeed, quite right, I have to say not a transport expert by any means, will speak to a transport person and forward PM to you if any use, but please do use local contacts etc, will try and keep out unless have something usefull to contribute, think that best for what it is worth, would be local guys in Southampton?
