This is DRAKE, renamed TAUNTON. Its a big old wooden hulled sinker. It has been here for a number of years licenced but unpaid mooring. In that time it has had 3 owners to my knowledge. It is, to all intents and purposes, a shell. BW/CRT seem to have ignored its presence much like they ignore many other boats around here that take the piss. In fact just under the bridge in the background is a boat that has had a ‘poorly’ engine for some eight months. Although this hasn’t stopped him from getting his 20 litres of diesel every week or so.
Well anyway yesterday CRT managed to get their finger out and actually put a ticket on DRAKE/TAUNTON. So maybe it will go soon.
