River Exe Cruise 6/7

On the way back to Exmouth from upriver we passed this old boat looking very sorry for itself. I seem to recall the pilot explained that it had at some time or other been in an accident of some sort and now was left where you see it in this picture no longer in use.

somewhat unusual for me, the cabin on this boat. but an excellent study in textures.
Brian Walbey: I wonder how much of the top of the boat might have been destroyed when it caught fire.
i don't think that it will make it through another season Brian... but it sure gave you a great picture....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Presumably at some time somebody will have to do something with it.

What a pity...she has elegant lines, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I do wonder what is now missing after the top caught fire.

A nice image but its seafaring days are numbered
Brian Walbey: Presumably at some time somebody will have to do something with it.
This old boat is a gem Brian! I love it.
Brian Walbey: A shame to see it in such a sad state.

Oh, a sad sight - but perhaps it can get a sort of restoration one day.
(I'll send you our snowdrop itinerary in East-Anglia - I can hardly believe that the snow drops will come out, although I already saw some of them here, but still closed their outer coat.)
Brian Walbey: Presumably at some time somebody will have to do something with it. (Thanks for your email, I have sent you a reply, we have some of our Snowdrops out at the moment)
I love the worn out look
Brian Walbey: I believe it has been in a fire Chantal, I guess somebody will have to do something with it one day.
Amazing that that the owner has not been asked to remove it. A photographer's dream though, Brian.

Amazing current here. Love the picture, but I feel sad for the boat, it deserved a better ending.
Brian Walbey: Presumably at some time somebody will have to do something with it. The river was making these lovely shaped round all the buoys to which boats were moored.

I expect at some point the mooring rope will give way and that will be the end of it. There's a strong current there by the look of it.
Brian Walbey: Yes the current did seem strong. I'm surprised the boat is still allowed to be there, it is of no use to anybody.

A lovely challenge to capture photographicaly ...I'm pleased you didn't wade out to try and get a better shooting angle.
Brian Walbey: Our boat was going quite fast so all my shots were more or less grab shots as we passed by.
Looks as though there might have been a fire!
Brian Walbey: I seem to remember to commentator on the boat said there had been a fire.
I love this image, Brian! A great composition!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, all my shots were grab shots, we were moving the boats weren't, the opposite way round to taking pictures of moving objects, most strange.
