How to move a giant £2m yacht across dry land

forumTop Comments

How utterly consumed by your own self importance do you have to be, to make the decision (even by proxy) that clogging up the roads with your boat is a greater priority than everyone elses journeys?! Marine industry and usage should be limited to the coast.

Nisha Khan

This is bloody stupidity who has passed this decision via transportation to blog this on road mst b fined Strict restrictions to b followed from nxt tym onwrd',s whoever is consulting to travel their yatch or anything across dry land without my permission it will b block.n the consumer have to pay charge along with punishment

I hope hiring the police isn’t a strain to their resources. Think a company or consumer spending that kind of money should hire private firms to do this.

Samantha Booker

So is it not water safe or something? There’s like zero reason that it would have to go via land than water.

Alyssa Tate

Why don't they transport it via water?

Heather Graham

Why? Its a boat we are an island . Sail the bloody thing round.

Christine Cefai

Ray Hunter This is Jim Bowen's fault.

Barry Gollop

Why should it be necessary to move a boat across land ?

Jo Sykes Martins

Mark Martins your Christmas present has arrived safely 😉

Gabrielle Warburton

Would that be the closest dock? Because that's a big boat I wanna go on it

Darren Smith

I wonder if he bought it in the Black Friday Sail.

Mandy Rutt

Glad they got my boat safely to the marine without any scratches!!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

David Graham

How did it end up so far from the coast in the first place?

Caroline Mcnair
