    .. who would live there ,, survey done on building in ringaskiddy came to nothing as not many would move there.. as for 30 years add a good few 0000 to that ,, and yes it once was used for commercial waste from the island houses..navy lads collected it in trailers and dumped it down there,, it was then covered in slag and smouldered away merryily for days ..

    Basin wise the plan (subject to funding and completion of ISPAT works) is:

    2 berths for P60s on the west wall of the basin
    2 berths for P60s in Graving Dock (west and east sides offset fore and aft)
    Possible recommissioning of Spencer Jetty



    What restricts the use of the tip?
    You can't break through the capping layer

    In my opinion, Spencer is only useful as a short term berth, a lay by while waiting for the Oil wharf to clear or even visiting vessels. Long term it restricts the movement in and out of the basin.
    Priority in my opinion though is get the sailing club out of the basin to a marina of their own, south of the dining hall, near the camber maybe. They take up too much useful space.
    Imagine if a modified car club decided to take up residence outside Transport workshops? Same thing. No military purpose whatsoever. There is a pontoon for the NSR boats.
    Well, there's good news and bad news. The bad news is that Neil will be taking over both branches, and some of you will lose your jobs. Those of you who are kept on will have to relocate to Swindon, if you wanna stay. I know, gutting. On a more positive note, the good news is, I've been promoted, so... every cloud. You're still thinking about the bad news aren't you?

    The NS thinks the same BTW

    None of this can be done until ISPAT is finished

    It has gone to tender

    Just to ask is that the finishing ISPAT has gone to tender or work on the Basin? Also very interesting, I always did wonder about the yachts in the Basin tbh.

    Are the yachts owned by ns bods/exers or is it a completely private club?
    Everyone who's ever loved you was wrong.

    NS bods and exers. The worst kind of WAFI.
