Waterways Ireland intends to remove some sunken boats from the Grand Canal at Shannon Harbour. The wooden boats will be broken up and sent to landfill; the steel and GRP boats will be sold off. Perhaps, if anyone were interested (and rich) enough, WI would sell one of the wooden boats to be restored.
I can’t find the notice on WI’s own website; here it is on the Afloat site.
Here are pics of the wooden boats.
Béal na Bláth, 7m wooden cruiser
Described as “Wooden Cabin Cruiser (Green) South Bank East of Griffith Bridge 7m”. Could this be the one they mean?
