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).

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.

Re: A sad end for a fine boat

Truth is that if you walk the docks at the average marina around here, probably 1/4th of the boats need to be crunched up just like that. They are not being used, and they are not being maintained. Sooner or later they are going to be scrap (probably sooner).

Re: A sad end for a fine boat

True. I'm looking for a boat that I can live on and blue water cruise. Trouble is, my budget is limited. Knowing there are so many out there that could easily be made useful at reasonable prices is frustrating.

Ah Well!
