Thanks very much to Chris Ford at Southern Tank
for provision of
transportation tanks and a pumping service; part of the logistics of moving the
fuel for the safety boat.

Southern Tank Services was

transportation tanks and provide a pumping service to get this very vital part
of the Irish Sea Crossing jig saw puzzle under way.

I could tell from just

pump service, Chris kindly donated a combined fuel filter / water-absorber, just to
ensure that when the fuel gets pumped into the boat that it is in absolutely perfect condition!

Thanks enormously to QinetiQ for provision of the
fuel for the safety boat.

The safety
boat is a massively important part of the crossing and although provision had
been made for a smaller safety boat…this fuel will allow the use of a larger, more capable boat, which will improve the safety aspects for this crossing
