Sanjay, Forest Hill

Answer

** Definitive **
Name: Mike, Woking
Qualification: I just asked a boat yard owner
Answer: I have a barber shop 50 yards from Eel Pie Island in Twickenham, so I asked a boat yard managers. If your boat is higher than 29 feet, it’s free to raise Tower Bridge, but it’s it’s lower than 29 feet, it costs £2,500.
