Vessel being constructed on Timi beach yesterday

Post by JimX » Fri May 24, 2019 6:57 am

Have heard several stories who actually owns this boat but it looks expensive, last story I heard was it is owned by a wedding company, but this is only one of several stories I have been told.

Rollers are placed on the ground and the vessel will then be tugged, pulled and pushed into the water. The standard method of entry.

Will they go through the usual formalities by saying
"I name this boat etc etc" and smash a bottle of champers
on the side?? :?

OK silly remarks ignored obviously misinformed members, they are starting to dig out the beach area and below the build site, I was told they will be using large blow up rollers, I hope I am around when the do launch the boat.

It will be quite a sight when it's launched. Hope they publish the date and time.

Oh dear you, have you lost your sense of humour if you ever had any, they were stupid remarks and got the right answer.Maybe you know how this boat will be launched? but probably not. :lol:

Yes Trev I have been informed and why they are digging out the beach that it is going out on large rubber inflatables rollers?, I hope I am in the cafe when they do launch it, some time away I think.

My friend who works for Lloyds Marine Insurance said unless there's loads of ballast it does look rather top heavy (no draught to speak of!)

Mike your right, looks to be only 1m from bottom to deck, maybe it has a drop down keel ?

A serious question for just a moment. How far from the sea is it Jim? Must admit it looks a bit like blowup tank decoys in WW2

Occurred to me too, the owners are in the business and will know what they're doing.
