Reading one of the linked news reports, it says Haydn Thirtle is Chairman of the BA, what happened to Packman,  has he  been removed, or does he have some other title of grandure?.

JP is the Chief Executive.

And if you haven't got a stern?

I see the river inspectors now know who they are,  either that or the support a Glasgow football team..  The launches  now have the word Ranger in two foot high letters emblazoned on the side. 

That's a rather clever fend-off. No good for dangling over the stem-head though. Blowed if I can see how a name could be painted on a cut-away transom like the above!

JP needs to get some longer craft for his troops, then he could sign write

"National Park Rangers"   :default_gbxhmm:

He's managed to squeeze the BNP lie onto quite a short vehicle so I don't suppose 'national park rangers' would be anything of a problem. I believe that he's even got it onto the BA's Smart Car!

Easy, as you might expect! The Rangers could be equipped with Dragon Boats, they are long enough to get it all in!

One of the best I think. The penultimate penultimate paragraph is superb

‘and using the wrong side of the scale rule’ made me chuckle. Good article, could make for some squirmy rear ends!

that made me outright laugh, the number of architects plans that I work with that somehow when at the correct scale dont fit into the ordnance survey map (also at the correct scale) when the two are overlaid, and you think to yourself someone is going to have fun building that, I mean its not rocket science, you buy the digital map from the OS and its at the correct scale, so how can you get it wrong?

the word inept springs to mine, getting the scale right is a fundamental in CAD.

I understand that a slightly revised planis being held in reserve in case the Blessed Authority cannot obtain the required land and/or funding ....

At least, Paul, that would be inside budget and being nearly all recycled materials, much greener than the proposed structure.

I am sure the BA would never give planning permission for such a structure - after all it cant possibly be pretty enough and I doubt you would get it through even under the auspices of a traditional eelmans hut, even though that is probably more what they looked like than anything else.

Are you sure. I'm sure the BA could make that cost half a million by the time all of the studies and consultations and such like have been completed, and ignored.
