    Default Local NtM - West Leigh Buoy - Temporary Emergency Wreck - Marking Buoy

    This has arrived today but the page won't (currently) Open properly. No doubt it will shortly but I guess the title serves as a warning:

    PLA NTM L2 of 2019 - Lower Notice - West Leigh Buoy - Temporary Emergency Wreck - Marking Buoy - 23rd January 2019
    To view this notice on our website please click on the following lick and paste it into your browser address bar:
    http://www.pla.co.uk/assets/l2of2019...arkingbuoy.pdf

    I'll periodically check. Nothing from Trinity House yet either.

    Still not working this morning. I have emailed.

    Yes, it does now. The location is not far from the Small Craft crossing point but out of the way north of the West Leigh Middle. I have drawn up an image showing the location in the Temporary List on: http://www.crossingthethamesestuary.com/page9.html

    It should be up now.

    Heard today that it may have been a narrowboat under tow to smallgains creek to be used as a houseboat. Not confirmed though.

    Just spotted the followup NTM saying that the narrowboat is about to be recovered soon.

    Being towed, I believe.

    The NTM has just been cancelled, raising of the boat delayed..
