Thanks to BIAS (and in particular Hobbsy) we're taking this into the 21st Century.

Tickets for the boat should be purchased online. We'll shortly be putting a link on here to allow you to do so. Tickets will be £11.99 per person. Anyone who has indicated interest so far should be fine in getting a ticket. If there is sufficient demand I should be able to arrange a second boat.

So - no need to find me with bundles of cash tomorrow :sorted:

Does this mean no kids prices now as only adult tickets there?
I'm not sure if we will do that online, I'll let 8Corner confirm.

Even If you have posted interest in the previous thread you still need to book your tickets via the above link.

I'm trying to confirm a second boat. Same times/prices. Will confirm on here as soon as I know.

I know some people who wanted tickets but couldn't get them.

Is there a lot of interest?

Still waiting on the boat company but I'm very hopeful I'll be able to confirm a second boat today.

Hoping to have a link on here very shortly where you can make your booking. It will be on a "standby" basis now pending confirmation of the boat availability (still hoping to hear today) and sufficient numbers (also hopeful on that as I'm getting a lot of interest).

No second boat!!

Unfortunately I have not been able to secure a second boat, largely because it will be a low tide which restricts the boats that are able to get far enough up river.

Apologies to the many who were interested but didn't manage to book on the first boat.

The first and only boat will now finish at Putney

I've also been informed that we are unable to use the Pier at Chelsea Harbour so the boat will now stop at Putney Pier at around 1pm. It is walkable from there or two stops on the district line (Putney Bridge to Fulham Broadway)
