Quite a lot of activity by dredgers both in the basin and outward of the basin gate.

One might say that it's rather late in the day to have realised the channels not deep enough.

Let's hope that unlike Pompey they don't trip over any WW2 unexploded ordnance.

The golden rivet does not a proper weld make ... but I might have a solution as to the very late in the day dredging that is going on .... they've lost yon golden rivet and the ship can't sail without it

DREDGING:

Perhaps they are preparing for post P of W i.e. dual purpose work - http://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/announ...rner_Terminal/


RIVETS VARIOUS

As was used to be said about the birth(s) of daughters - Anyone can punch a hole in a tin can but it takes a man to soldier it up.

This is even more confusing.Does this mean she will leave the basin on a high tide on Sunday, and then anchor until monday to sail under the bridges at low tide.

Otherwise if it's all to be done on Monday then the tidal charts do not compute. Unless of course they leave the basin on the first high tide at 0505hrs to catch the low tide around midday. That means they still have to hang around in the river for about six hours. I reckon that I'm confusing myself now, so I will finish and just wait and see.

Well it is a bit windy up here this morning and the forecast is that it won't drop until early Monday morning.

So I am bit confused. When a CVS passed the bridge, I recall there was always a balance between draught (water depth) and air draught (space above). So there is always a point in the tide that is neither high nor low tide, where there is depth under the keel and space above the masts. Now, reading here and on other sites, people seem to think QE needs to pass at low tide. So..... did they just dredge massively under the bridge, meaning she can pass at low tide, or are people mistaken?
