URGENT Need to remove Claydons from moorings to boat park
Initiated by Rachel, prior to 60+ mph winds on THursday. Please could we arrange for around eight of us to tow Mabel and Gladya ashore , place on road trailers and park in boat park. We are expecting very high winds by Thursday and we need to get boats off their moorings. We could not do on Sunday as Harbour was already full of water 1.5 hours prior to hight tide. No beach to place trailer and winch boats on.
So could around eight of us be at Langstone at 09.30 Monday to tow both boats ashore and put in trailers. HW is 11.53 at 4.9 Mtrs. SHould be easy to do at this time, whe need around eight of us to push the trailer and boat up the slope.
Please sign up if you can help.

happy to help
The boat park has had more than one inundation by the sea, plus continuous rain, so is very soft. Manipulating both Claytons onto it may prove difficult, and damaging.
May I propose a way of reducing the wear on the park.... if, when the Claytons are brought ashore, Gladys is brought onto its trailer onshore I could immediately trail it home for a day or so until it is either needed or can be driven on to the boatpark when it is drier and more firm.
Mabel could also be taken somewhere clear of falling trees etc. if someone else is able to provide a parking site.
Just a thought.
I’m really sorry but all public transport is heavily disrupted today following the weather etc. So I’m afraid I won’t be there to help you today now. I hope you get enough helpers.
See you soon
