Graveyard of boats

It has always puzzled me that it is illegal to dump a car on the road but no such law exists about dumping boats and so on many of our estuaries we find graveyards where old, damaged and unwanted posts are driven onto the mudflats and left to rot.


On our Hoo walk last week we came across just such a graveyard with boats in all states of decay.



I guess there is one point where the boats, at least if they are wood, differ from a car, they do rot and over time become part of the environment.
