I’ve never actually seen the container packing happening, have you? John Hanson (Datchet Water SC), kindly sent these few photos in of the whole process.
It’s a big commitment for everyone involved too – a return container ticket for one boat is around £1,500.
Here’s how the Association stacks four in a container…..
1/ Put the Keels to bed for two boats
2/ Step two – get the top bunks loaded
3/ Get the first bottom “bunk”in place (nose to nose)
4/ Get all four aboard
5/ Seal up and ready to go
To load 4 boats to travel takes about two hours, John says.
Good luck in Hong Kong!!!
