There’s nothing like a long haul road trip to welcome a team member back from a holiday. With Luke still enjoying the jet lag that follows a 12 and a half hour flight we set off at 5am and headed north for Scarborough to collect a Scrap Boat.
We were recently contacted by an Insurance company and asked to get up to Birmingham as soon as possible as there was a boat taking on water fast that needed to be disposed of. As you can see from the pictures when we got to her she was starting to resemble a Submarine.
Seeing an old wooden boat scrapped is always a sad sight, even for us at Boatbreakers. But sometimes the problems with them and the costs far outweigh the value, so if nobody wants her it’s time to be scrapped.
