Eastney beach is a hot spot for end-of-life and abandoned boats. Over the years the Boatbreakers team has been tasked with removing many of the boats that have been ditched on the beach by former owners.
A marina in Gosport has become a dumping ground for dumped boats. The problem of owners leaving a boat to rot in a boatyard is a growing issue.
Our team found this video of abandoned boats in a Bermudan Boat Graveyard on Youtube. Whilst the video is a fairly short one it shows a worrying image of how many boat yards will end up looking if boats are left abandoned by their owners.
In between the stormy wind and showers this week our team have been out collecting abandoned boats. The boats in question were rowing boats left on a public pontoon.
