New home for boat

Since I have been wAiting since April for my GRP repairs I decided to build a new home for the boat and trailer on the dead ground at the side of my garage so it no longer clogs up the drive.
Can't wait to see if the trailer fits.

Nice work.

Is the gravel of a depth that might make tricky the moving of the trailer by hand?

Thanks It has drainage and about a foot of compacted hardcore then Terram sheeting with stones on top and compacted again so it is solid. Job almost finished me!

That looks brilliant, looks out of sight as well from neighbours moaning.

I don't get people moaning about boats on drive ways, they look much better than caravans or old clapt out cars.

I got a legal eagle letter telling me to remove the 'speedboat' as it breached my missives. I basically said p@ss off by pointing out that they would have to act on all other neighbours breaches such as running business from home, commercial vehicles etc or face me in court to answer to my charge of discrimination. Never heard from them again but the neighbour responsible can't even look me in the eye. I wonder how much that waste of time cost him he he! That's why I have put the fence up so don't have to see him fizz. He has to get a life

You must've robbed a heap of graves for all of those white spar chips.

6 ton of stones and still could do with another 1/2 bag. Got the boat back from repair yard and it fitted beautifully into the space. serviced the engine with loads of space at the stern for a change. May have to put a tarp under the engine when changing the oils tomorrow as I kept dropping bolts onto the stones which is not the easiest surface to play find the bolt and I usually spill more than goes in. First outing for 2014 this weekend down the Forth can't wait.
