Whale on Norfolk Beach

#1 by Voltman , Thu Feb 04, 2016 11:23 am

It must be possible by now to deal with this sort of situation in an effective way.
We have machinery than can dig tunnels and mines, go into space, build sky scrapers and yet we can't lift a whale off a beach and put it back in the sea.

A very large amphibious digger is required, dig under the whale and a large portion of beach and take it all out to sea. Or, build a massive water tank around it and refloat it until the tide comes back in.

This is something we could get REME to do.
