Hi there,

Many thanks for the footage, yes they would be concerned with oil etc escaping, again, sad to see, says bad weather...hm, well there it is, another most likely bites the dust, but did want to say noted under "What's New" pioneer has posted the news re PT-305 which is great, much appreciated,

She was originally going to be towed to a local boat yard but nobody will tow her. I believe she will now be lifted onto the quay and broken up sadly. I'll post some videos online I took of inside her once I can confirm that she will definitely be broken up.

Hi there,

Many thanks for the video there, well, yes I can see that really she would be quite a lot of damage, the engines not least would need a complete strip and re-build, let alone damage to the hull...we do see vessels saved, the HSL 2552 is in hand but a tremendous amount of work and cost...believe, there is an example ashore in a museum in Finland, so not all lost but still.. thanks again,

Johnk
