Re: A sad end for a fine boat

Am I the only one who thinks the boat held up really well, given the huge excavator being used? Yes it's sped up 2x..

Honestly I thought that was a pretty durable construction, especially given that it appears all windows, and hatches were already removed (as well as any bulkheads were either burned or removed).

Re: A sad end for a fine boat

Vancouver Marine surveyor Paul Dupre tried that with a steel sailboat. In 8 hours, he couldn't make a hole in it. Had to resort to a cutting torch.
