Welcome to The Norfolk Broads Forum
This is THE Worlds Largest Forum devoted to the Norfolk Broads, here you can discuss issues about the Norfolk Broads. Or just somewhere to chat with others interested in the Norfolk Broads area.
Crushing fibreglass boats seems an expensive way to dispose of them and wood is only fit for burning after crushing so it seems way over the top. Surely better to have a fire sale I.e. Zero reserve auction... and then burn what's left after scavengers have paid a fiver for this and that. Bit like the old days of Hainford hall to keep the jalopy running. Sad if as harsh as it sounds.
Certainly were very few remaining boats there this weekend, relative to what was there a few months ago. Unfortunately complete boats have a relatively low density so breaking them up is probably the only way to dispose of them. It has to be said that some of the "hulks" had been available for sale very cheaply for a while. Still a sad way to close a chapter on a business.
