Boats of Shame

I thought it might be neat to start a thread on projects you have seen that by simple neglect have become embarrasing messes for their anonymous owners.

Just post a pic and a short message:

What happened with this dude? Can someone point me towards this thread - I couldn't find it.

Don't mean to divert what should be a very entertaining thread.

..but at least this one is sailing!! ..and given that there was absolutely no wind, I do wonder why.

Perhaps he saw us coming and wanted to put on a good show of it??

30 + years ago, I built a Y-Flyer in shop class. After 20 years of neglect I had to take a chain saw to her and she went in a bond fire.
