    Negative biggest truck that can get in to club is beer truck and that only just makes it down the ramp in to the yard level no way to get a low loader in to the club let alone out with a boat on it

    The issues are that there is not enough reach to get from the baths car park to the yard. And you can't get a Crain in to the yard with out lifting it in. As there is no access and most of the aria is not capable of supporting the weight of the Crain let alone a 15 ton boat at 100+ meters of reach. It can be done no one is denying that it's just how much it costs to get 6 boats back in the water. In a yard that's loosing money and runs at a loss to benefit and offer a service to about 60% of the boat owing membership.

    Shame you can't get a big enough Crain in to the yard to move the bigger boats let alone getting them out. When I looked at it about 2 months ago it was 2 big Crains 2 days. Half a day to lift a Crain in to the yard then pull rigs out then move boats to lower car park on cradles then other Crain in baths car park to lift boats over the members car park then on to a truck then off to Syc and rigs back in then lift the Crain out. All up its big Coin that my membership/ contractor fees are paying for. 2 riggers 2 days 2 boat builders 2 days 2 100 ton Crains 2 days + drivers and 2 riggers 2 trucks 2 days + escorts Mariner manager + club experts Traffic management Permits to close car parks Travel lift fees Owners Owners reps Some one to move boats back to RBYC That's with out finding any issues in the rigs boats or weather issues! And that's not taking the insurance issues in to account
