That post #1 is truly a field of broken dreams..
But one only needs to wander local marinas to see so-called 'plastic fantastics' in similar states of neglect.. sad no matter where you find it.
True.. although somehow a wooden boat in a state of neglect is a lot less imposing and harsh on the eyes (proud even in it's state of decrepit-ness) than the outrage attached to the sight of a rotting chunk of 'plastic fantastic' - which should be hidden from view as quickly as possible.
