Walking Boat Test a Success!

It did it! All Andrew's hard work and determination to overcome the boats exit onto the shoreline has paid off!

Adjustments being made

All the adjustments being made will aid the boat's movement up the shore.  The 20ton boat needs to be able to slew across the beach foreshore but was instead digging itself into the riverbed as the mechanical legs pushed forward.

In discussion with Port of London Authority about gaining permissions to stage a trail following the modifications.

Progress, progress

Andrew has been to work when the tide is out, shoring up the metal work inside before cutting through the hull on the outside, often at ridiculous hours late at night and early in the morning.
