    Comfortably? No. I'd hate to have to put numbers to that to justify it and even if the maths did check out, it wouldn't give me a peaceful nights sleep all the time I know it's still in service.

    It is a proper little 'sail on stilts' isn't it. There are quite a few similar at the moment. I'm just worried that its an increasing trend, with shopfronts and similar becoming larger and fancier. I had a request last month, not to tie in until we reached the windows on the third story about 8.5m, this was from a scaffolder who was comfortable to get up that high on a 4+2 Independent. I thought he was mad.

    Ha, I've been known to be a bit more adventurous than i want to be on a couple of 'as per' drawings, but everythin is alway within its permissible limits.

    This one however, like you said, must rock more than Lemmy, Hendrix and Slash combined.

    I'd be happy to wager it wouldn't pass a frame analysis model!
