It's in Saanich so its the design for the new Mackenzie-Island Highway roundabout. New and improved from the Airport-Highway 17 masterpiece.

Perhaps it had a diabetic condition.

 

Or a crack problem...which caused the boat to leak.

Last time needles, this time oil?   Beach closed again. 

 

Cadboro-Gyro Park Beach has been closed until further notice because of what appears to be an oil leak from a derelict boat.

Saanich Parks and Recreation officials are working with the coast guard to assess the situation brought to their attention by local residents late Sunday.

During a storm on Dec. 5 a vessel washed up on the beach in front of Cadboro Gyro Park, according to a news release.

It was not immediately clear whether Saanich officials were able to contact the boat’s owner.

Salvage of vessels falls under the Canada Shipping Act.

Unless given approval by the owner, or by the Receiver of Wrecks if the owner cannot be reached, local jurisdictions are not authorized to dispose of vessels that wash ashore.

The owner of the 55-foot boat that washed ashore in the middle of Cadboro Bay beach early on Dec. 5 is offended the District of Saanich and media have referred to it as derelict.

Cyril Manuel was living on the vessel, the Pacific Sun King, for six years until last Friday’s violent storm forced the 40-tonne boat to drag anchor from a spot midpoint in the bay.

Prior to last week, Manuel lived in Esquimalt waters near the navy base.

“I just paid $600 to get towed here, it took me two attempts,” said Manuel, who was at the boat salvaging tools and personal belongings Monday night. “I take offence to the term ‘derelict,’ I’ve been a boater for 15 years.”

No one wants to be responsible for the cleanup.

If your old buried oil tank leaks into the neighbours basement you are responsible, but if your boats runs aground and leaks oil onto the beach the local jurisdictions are not authorized to do anything about it.

What a load of nonsense.

I swung by there this morning and saw some chaps taking stuff off of the "boat".

It may or may not fit the definition of derelict, but to me it would fit the definition of "crap."

It seems that the locals are tired of the inaction with the boat broken up and just sitting there.

There is no way the thing will ever float again.

The fuel tank has been dragged up above the high tide line, and the rest of the "crap" is being piled up next to the park trash can.

This fine vessel is in rough shape considering it has had "$40,000" spent on it over the past 6 years.

Presumably if the receiver of wrecks is dragging their feet on this one, nobody will really do anything if a bunch of NIMBY's with some crowbars go and strip the boat and stack the material further up ashore.

Although to be honest that boat looks too dicey for me to want to take part in that.
