I work on this Rotating boat lift and having googled the competition it is easily the most efficient way to move 1800 tons of bodies boats and water the world has yet seen it costs only 10 pounds sterling to operate over a 24 hr period. You pay no money to send your boat through it so who ever said the scots were tight ?.

Falkirk Wheel - designed by RMJM architects. Incidently with offices in scotland and england (as well as rest of the world), so Wolfy's comment has my vote. The internet is a wonderful thing isn't it?
