Will anyone mind if I try this in Chichester Harbour?
You could make a mint if you could get it to Brighton.I think Chi may have something to say ! Being Conservancy area.
The number of boat channels to houses on our river is significant and most have same overgrown problem. I am discussing with my Company Accounts Mgr - whether we can create a floating canal cleaning system. There are only two dedicated providers of this in Latvia and they don't like travelling outside of Riga / Jurmula .... that's about 3hr drive from here.
Our idea is that if we can create - then I estimate at least 9 months per year work. Not only my river - but there are others not so far from us ...
Entrance is the problem now ... but drag chains and grid should help.Loved the videos Nigel. Think we should dub you "The King of mud pies" Must be a bit of a squeeze with the big boat through that entrance. Also difficult to find the entrance.
Seriously it is a fascinating story of a situation so different to my experience. Good luck and keep up the videos. ol'will
