Help wanted to transport boat

HELP is wanted to transport a boat to a festival that has been restored after being found abandoned.

The restorded boat, Whimbrel, that was a one-off water taxi built in 1965 is hoping to be an attraction at this year's Burnley Canal Festival but is at present stuck at Glasson Dock on the Lancaster Canal, Alan Tilbury reports.

Truck large enough

So an appeal is being made for someone with a truck large enough to transport it to the festival with some method of loading the 15ft boat.

The Burnley Canal Festival starts on Friday 24th August, and its restorer, Colin Ogden, can be contacted on: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
