Boat on fire on Foss Dyke

Featured Posts

https://thelincolnite.co.uk/?p=273342

Caught fire this afternoon. (Tues 10th) To say it was not in the best condition beforehand would have been a gross understatement! Moored opposite official morings on way out of Lincoln (westward). Noticed it a week or so ago, tied to a tree. Hopefully no one aboard.

One less scrap boat on the ditch.

 

This one was well past its use by date. A scrap yacht hull with a shed on the back that has not been out of Lincoln for at least three years but CC's!

 

No doubt it has no insurance so all you CRT licence holders will be subsidising the wreck removal.

Surely the crowd funding will cover that with the surplus after buying the new boat? ;)

This has been posted on the Linconite website.  It's a video of the events leading up to the blaze, taken from a security camera on board a boat opposite..

Yes he was homeless (even more so now) he could easily have been killed.

I imagine no licence, insurance or safety certificate, however compared to what was inflicted upon him all of those are nothing more than three more pieces of paper that wouldn't have stopped this crime.  

Would anyone like to suggest that the three charming little scrotes were motivated to choose this boat because it was lacking the requisite administration?

I'm always first in the queue to insist everyone pays their due, but this was nearly a catastrophe.

At this time Police are still investigating.

Hope you are happy with your views.

I hope the lads never come past your boat when it is moored somewhere.

I hope they do just that: come past it and don't stop! I'm sure that every boat owner would agree.

 

You mention "those lads"; this suggests that there was more than one criminal, and that they were young males. Were culprits seen?

Ah yes. I had seen still photos but not the video - which should help the police apprehend the yobs.

Hopefully wont have a boat for much longer so they would struggle.

 

Let's just say that these "lads" don't just throw fireworks at just any boat that is moored up.

 

This scrap boat and its various occupants have caused more than their fair share of problems on the ditch over the last five years or so. This wasn't just a random attack on a random boat.

Falling on hard times doesn't give you free reign to ignore your responsibilities.

Time for new ventures. I think we have squeezed in enough boating in the last 13 years to last us a lifetime. 

 

We have one last boating holiday in Belgium booked for next Easter and then we are doing some tenting next summer until we find the right motorhome for sale. We know which make and model we want we just need to find one for sale now!

You live in a bubble of your choosing if you think people choose to live like that. 

Do you know that police cells and jails are used to collect the mentally ill.

785 people died sleeping rough in the UK last year.

Maybe "Society" will provide the homeless guy with a new start.

Yes, if there is one: there was, mercifully, no one on board at the time of the fire, so perhaps there is no such person.

It wasnt a very good boat but it was somebodies home, that somebody is now homeless, at the coldest time of the year, due to 3 scumbags just having some "fun". I really hope they are caught and discover what its like to be inside a cage with nowhere else to go for a year or 2

It will not happen Peter. In todays pc world they simply will be " Misunderstood " be suffering from the modern pressures of " Facebook " be good lads that didnt understand what they were doing. They will probably be given supervision orders and sent on some paid for holiday to help re educate them!!

It would be funny if it wasnt true.

Sad but true allthough the guy that robbed my boat and another one, was caught on camera got a long jail sentence because he was a repeat offender

Lets just face facts, you don't know anything of the sort.  The fact that they have is a crime regardless of your self opinionated prejudice against those down on their luck.

So if the system isn't sufficiently efficient, to your liking then it's ok to do this?  You seem to know a lot concerning this attack, down to why and that it wasn't random.  You really should do your public duty and tell the authorities.  After all I'm sure you're not just being mischievous considering the crime committed.

Interesting you say that, it says a lot about you.  You are the only person to go down that route nobody else, or even attempted to suggest otherwise.

I thought it was only men who got grumpy and curmudgeonly in old age? Could it be the creeping d word?

Have you ever stopped to think that these people dont want help?

 

There are places they can go to get the help they need in Lincoln. They choose not to use them.

 

You can not help people who do not want to be helped. 

 

This particular miscreant has already moved onto another scrap boat where he will cause yet more trouble for those unfortunate enough to be around him.
