A few months ago my Hartley Tasman - Shenoa - broke her 18 month old anchor chain and ended up under a wharf, where it was rescued some 9 hours later by water police and delivered to Marine Safety Queensland. They issued an order to have her hauled within a fortnight on the basis of "damage caused in the accident." Further details of the story up to here are in "The Coastal Passage" letters column for issue 77, Apr-May 2016.
I protested this order as the yacht was undamaged, all they could see was existing decay and old damage from an accident 3 years ago and prior to my ownership. The order was eventually cancelled and another issued, stating that I had until June 30th to have her inspected and declared seaworthy by a qualified boat builder.
I've torn my hair out over this decision but the cost of repairing this hull to a condition I'd be satisfied with is too much and just not viable compared to the resale value, so she's going to the crusher. You may now call me "ferro killer." Sorry.
I still haven't decided what to do with the Queenslander in Sydney.
