The world's only rotating boat lift
Thanks, glad you like them :smile:I knew from news items when it was opened that it was an impressive piece of engineering, but your photographs really do it proud, both in terms of the engineering aspects of the mechanism and putting it in context with it's surroundings, most impressive in both senses, very well done.
Yes, apparently it uses 1.5 kWh to rotate (about the same as 8 electric kettles use to boil)I cycled out there from Edinburgh along the Union canal during the summer and was pleasantly surprised by how interesting the engineering is and in particular how low the energy requirements are
