Sheโ€™s now back home at last ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ˜ ... See MoreSee Less

This morning we had a test lift. A massive thank you to EAGLE PLANT HIRE, TRURO for coming forward and offering to help ๐Ÿ’ช. They used a load cell to determine the weight of the JAMES STEVENS No10 and she weighs just shy of 5 tons with everything removed that can be ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Unfortunately she is just too long to fit on the back of the EAGLE PLANT truck, so we are now on the scrounge for somebody that has a larger flat bed truck in order to move her to St.Ives. Do you know anybody that can help us out and get the project moving ? Obviously the crane is all sorted now so we just need a longer flat bed truck ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคžthanks also to Dan Pollard, Mike Laity, Mark Penberthy, Nick Reynolds, Martin Mason and Mike Hancock for all your help with the test lift ๐Ÿ‘ ...

Yay, it's all happening. Well done. X

Brilliant!

I dont know if Newports in Crowlas have a big enough lorry. The company that PZSC and harbour use is Unwins I think.

I’ve just called Ross who’s got that specialist truck that can move a 40 foot container and lift it on with the crane on the truck

Adam Johns

He’s coming back to me

Anderssons

Robin Langford how about that chap I got to tag onto the last post ??

Went over to JAMES STEVENS No10 this afternoon to prepare her for a test lift. Pumped out rainwater. Drained and removed the aft fuel tank. Removed deck boards, ballast buckets and bags from stern compartment. Removed the remaining ballast bags from the midships compartments. Removed everything possible from the boat to make her as light as possible ready for the lift ๐Ÿคž we estimate that we have removed another 2 tons today ๐Ÿ’ชThe restoration schedule will be a lot more structured once she is moved back home to St.Ives ๐Ÿ‘ thanks to Mike Laity and Nicholas Spencer Reynolds for all your help today ...

APPEAL FOR HELP - PLEASE READ & SHARE THIS POST - Unfortunately we have had a set back regarding the transportation of the JAMES STEVENS No10๐Ÿ˜ซ. She needs to be moved from Hayle to St.Ives so that restoration work can continue over the winter months. Is there anybody out there who can help ? or know of anyone that would be able to help ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž. A crane and large flatbed truck will be required in order to complete this task as the JS No 10 is 37 feet in length. Photo by Tony Mason ... See MoreSee Less

Hi Rob, won’t you have to get her back to Hayle again for launch once she’s done tho?

Suggestion from a friend with connections with the RAF! ‘Try asking RAF Saint Mawgan, the services are usually (or used to be) very good at this sort of help’

Hi I’m sure we could help, Falmouth Crane Services

Give cornwall commercials a call, may be something they can do ๐Ÿ™‚

Try A R Newport they move boats a lot and may be able to help

Tractor and big low loader with a big hydraulic winch is the cheapest option I reckon bud.

What weight is the boat?

Try Anderson boat transport at rock
