Boats that sail no more.

No matter how well built, boats don’t last for ever. Some are scrapped, some are sunk and others are left to quietly disintegrate. Seeing examples of this last group we can only guess why their owners decided they were no longer worth repairing or maintaining. They also carry a hidden history of all the places they have been, dangers they have survived, pleasure they have given to their crews and more.

At Cunnamore, West Cork.
In Co Clare – how did they turn a boat of this size upside down? It must be at least 9 metres long.
