    Photo Assignment: Abandoned boats

    these 3 'retired' fishing boats have been moored at this jetty on the Isle of Mull for several years. I know my Husband's friend repaired the hull of one (front right) because I drove them over on the ferry.

    Nothing is going to save them now (the boats that is, not my Husband & his friend ).

    Reviving this thread after "abandonment" for some years.
    Found this video by some obvious more enthusiastic than knowledgeable boys visiting an abandoned scrapyard:

    I would love to explore dead ships like this some day - together with someone, because I would be so nervous!

    Yes. That is very much the case, Dane. And it happens on islands a lot too (including here in Scotland) where proper disposal of larger items to the mainland –cars, fridges, that sort of thing –could entail effort and cost.

    But in the remoter settlements in Greenland, there is more to it than just that. Consider everyday garbage for example. It was explained to us tourists that it is to a large extent a cultural thing. It’s not so long ago that folk were living a very traditional hunting/fishing way of life; imagine sitting eating, scraps are just tossed aside, but its all biodegradable. But then came the sudden impact of another culture of coke-tins and supermarket packaging, and that gets tossed aside as they have always done, but it stays there. It takes a few generations to adjust to our norms of garbage collection. I found all this absolutely fascinating and will be returning to such themes in further “Glimpses of Greenland” in other threads.
