As long as you have an owner then you can get a complainant which you need for a charge of Theft.

Tell them you want them for ballast which is essential to the SAFETY of your craft.....

If memory serves, they filled the bilge of the Victory with stones and shingle. It not only supplied ballast but was also used to stop supplies from moving around inside.

I think all sailing ships were fitted out like that.

Are you thinking of fitting a mast to your new boat ?

I can't get anything larger than pea shingle that doesn't cost £5 a bag

The local aggregates places (the sort of place a builder gets his stuff from) is only open during the week and I can't get down there. What a bloody rip off!!

That's what you get when "Ground force" type programs are shown on TV

Strange they were open this morning so a called in and ordered 5 tonnes of 40mm for you £120 incl delivery . Delivery arranged for 6am Monday morning, don't leave the car on the drive. I told him not to worry about the new concrete as the pebbles will press in and look very nice

Just do them one at time....

What about a water tank under the bow and fill it when needed. You could fit fresh water shower ( for cleaning the fish that you catch!!!!)

It is illegal here to take anything such as stones and sand from our beaches.

In any event there are plenty or quarries who will not begrudge you a few bags of shingle. The council dumps loads of this in lay byes over here for road building, I will send you some.....

Actually I don't think it is illegal to remove stones from a beach - unless it's the Chesil Beach that is which has a specific law relating to it.
