Given a 3.5 hour crossing, and assuming 1 hour turn round at each end I reckon they'll need between 5 and 6 ships, and the staff that go with that size operation. I hope they intend paying more than 30k because they won't find all the people they need from the UK pool of job hunters!

Perhaps my maths are wrong.
