Interesting If you can't find the right place have thought about covering a lake with a clear span building http://www.star-hire.com/Introduction/orbit/orbit.html

Not sure if this is a daft suggestion or not, but is a covered drydock big enough?
MDL in Plymouth have got covered docks big enought for destroyers.
There are also other shipyards that are desperate for work / might have space avaiable.
The RAF / RE have just tested a scaffolding hanger that they can put a Caberra in, might be an idea also.

Cookie,

Have you tried the RNLI at Poole? They have a new facility, which I have been told is large enough to roll a life boat.

Worth a try.

Cheers.

Ian.

Nothing to do with us!

We tend not to get involved in the studio stuff - we're more locations really!

Cookee, try Qinetiq, I used to work there and they have various test tanks onsite at Haslar in Gosport look at the following link, last paragraph for dimentions 120x60x5.5 metres deep. They also have a wave maker as well. They do work with Southampton University and develop race going yacht hulls, so there's a chance of a private rent.

Whitlingham little Broad is next to our boathouse (just outside Norwich). It's less than ten years old, we train beginners (rowing) on it. Not very deep, and not very big either! There's a boatyard next door with cranes and things too. PM me if you want some photos or details.

Edit: Didn't read the bit about it needing to be covered. Ignore.....
