Old GRP boats are a growing problem, there is a recycler in Gosport who the last I heard was charging about £100 per footup to 30ft.

Apparently Fance and Sweden are leaders in the field, but with some 6.5 mllion leisure boats in Europe and about 2% reaching end of life each year it is no wonder boats are getting abandoned.

Some countries grind them up and mix with road surfacing and adding the grinds to non-structural concrete.

Sad to see the first photo. I remember hiring  one of these from Wing Line Cruisers in Brundall quite a lot of years ago (late 70's I think) 

Nice boat, 4 berth, 2 loos/showers  and warm and comfy on board.


Yes I remember in the early 1980s they looked super-modern for the time.
