I'm reckon he could afford to charter one...but my feeling is all of these things are expected as a 'favour'......

If he leaves now he could walk it and get there in plenty of time. There'll be no need for a fast boat on the 6th.....

Thanks for boat ideas. I've now found a boat for a 'Beckham and the flame' arrival for the start of my Accidental Book tour in Portsmouth.
