Re: Fishing boat recovery from Fleetwood dock.

Interesting. I wonder how much the firm charged for it's recovery and dismantling, netting off any scrap value. At least a 10 man team on site for 3 weeks plus equipment hire and transportation.

Could read across to the sunk boat in Glasson Marina ?

Regards all

I'm sorting out my toy cupboard. Freaky Deakey is therefore up for sale to a good home for £350 ono. She comes with 2 sets of sails and a road trailer as well as a launching trolley. Berthing paid for until the end of the year. I'll be putting a note on the notice board this week-end.

When the quay was built in the 1700s they built the wall in the middle of the river on bedrock and back filled up to the meadow which was probably marshy river bank ish. That produced lots of new land for buildin...
