Didn't a ship sail right through the middle of it a while back? Actually, didnt the end burn down at some point?

This is all true, but it was a few years ago now, they have/are spending a lot of dough on it now and it is in the middle of its ongoing restoration...............................BUT!!!!!!!!!!!! X( a bit of wind deems it unsafe.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!......................i don't know, maybe it is okay to 'err' on the side of caution but sometimes i wonder if H/S insn't overdone on occasions ~X(

You know they are gonna pass a new HSE Law that you need a Methods Statement and risk assessment to go fishing??
Very dangerous, water, hooks, rocks, sky and even the odd fish thing.

Have YOU had your MS/RA approved??

Just kidden, but it could be going that way.
