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.

    I like the way his mate is watching from the safety of the harbour wall.


  2. Poor old ship…. It’s good you was able to take these photos before she’s gone forever. But maybe this guy is able to make miracles happen?!

    i’d be too scared to step onto that boat, well, what’s left of it at least

      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!
