Thanks, but seem to have transport sorted now, my mate and boating buddy has agreed to tow the boat over from here (he has a jeep), to Southampton/Portsmouth - he will then return on the Liverpool/Belfast Ferry Sunday night - clocking up the miles! So fingers crossed, and no more dramas boat will still be in her new home on Sunday.
Police phoned me with an update today - they are now sure the car 'left the jurisdiction' shortly after 4am on Sat morning - entered the Republic of Ireland. They had two sightings of the car on cameras. No sighting of it as yet anywhere else. Who knows - but its a pain in the arse! All the insurance companies back to work tomorrow so will see how we get on with them.
