Another interesting photo. What would the cost be to rent the dry dock??

ken why would you want to know the cost of using the dry dock, have you got a boat

Unless there is a channel not showing in the picture there seems to be no room to work right underneath the boat.
Once again good piccy.

Anne - I can see a channel under the boat.

There is a channel under the boat, but you'll need a diving suit.

I have brightened my screen and can see something resembling a trough but it still looks a poor working space.

Is the rope to stop it floating away?

The boat is resting on the cross beams. It looks like they are about two feet above the floor of the dock, so there is room to get under the boat for cleaning and painting. Any job under the bottom of a boat is a nasty dirty job....
