Project – Around the Harbour (#6 Floating Wreck)

The fact that this skeleton of a ship is still afloat is amazing.

One man was busy working away in the bowels of the wreck, watched by an interested colleague.

At first I assumed he was fixing it up (a truly Herculean task!)

Until I saw him take a chainsaw to the hull. At which point I figured he was probably dismantling it one rotten piece at a time.

      Yeah, it looked like it might sink at any moment. Chainsawing the sides probably wasn’t helping!

      At one point the guy on the boat was hammering out lumps of wood from the very bottom of the hull. I almost thought he was trying to put a hole in it! Yeah, I wouldn’t get on board either!
