Wreck removed from beach
THE WRECK of a sailboat that washed ashore almost two years ago has been removed from Browne’s Beach by a team from Marenco Limited.
Harbour Master Richard Alleyne said yesterday morning’s operation was not particularly difficult as the boat had deteriorated significantly over that two-year period.
He said Barbados Port Inc. was made aware of the wreck only about two or three weeks ago.
“We are fairly confident, though, that we will be able to identify who the owner is . . . .
In the first instance, we would try to recover the figure [for the cost of this operation] from the owners of the boat.
“We will make every effort to do that, but failing that, the port will cover this expense,” he noted. (ROG)
