  1. Hello David. If I was to do it. Sufficient spray foam for 900 sq feet at 2" thickness. That's my guestimate anyway. 😀. Don't under estimate the skill required though. I've watched them many a time. It can get very messy when things go wrong. Come on folks give the guy a break..
  2. The cofferdam is still there, and is still failing, so no effective work looks imminent. Then again it's only 3 months since the breech. At least the levels on the Goole side of the breach came back up a few days ago so just about near normal. Transit for leisure craft through Goole docks is still blocked. The latest pictures taken today, courtesy of Mark Penn, Drone Pilot.
  3. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  4. 27-28"' below normal, same as yesterday, but hey it could be Ocean Lock, what do I know?
  5. We have dropped a foot in the last 24 hours.
  6. No, in fact the "repair" is failing and the CRT have lowered the levels on that stretch even more. We in Goole are isolated from the canal by the defective emergency stop gates. Taken from a Facebook Barge Group.
  7. Thorne side at Cowick, near the breach. Opposite bank.
  8. My link was to a Facebook group. It is a group of local Drone pilots. Anything of interest, if conforming to their rules and regulations in our area, they go and film with their drones. They don't do it for money. There are probably millions of interesting groups on Facebook. I for one am a great fan.
  9. Just a picture, not as good as the video on facey.

  11. I have heard that they have returned to the breach today to continue the repair. The canal is still down. Goole is still isolated by the defective emergency stop gates and levels are still low. More pumps have been added to try and overcome the leakage and get the level up in Goole. The Docks are still out of action I believe until the emergency gates are open as they can't replace water lost through the tidal locks.
  12. Yes they can shut off the aqueduct.
  13. I would say we are down at least a foot at the moment. We have had issues with boats drifting under jetties in the past and when the levels come back up they're fast.
