ex Elly 146 Posted May 26, 2021 Share Posted May 26, 2021 Two men found guilty of scuttling boat in marine reserve near Waiheke Island In July 2019, Lanssen and Subritzky approached the boat’s owner, David Randell, and offered to dispose of the vessel for $10,000 after it had broken from its moorings during a storm and run aground on rocks near Whakanewha Reserve on Waiheke Island. The men came to an agreement Lanssen and Subritzy would salvage as much of the vessel as possible, before breaking down the masts and cabin and dropping them into the hull of the boat to be set on fire. The hull was then to be broken up and taken to landfill, where it would be buried. However, after receiving full payment, the two men instead enlisted the help of a third party to tow the vessel to a site between Woodside Bay and Rocky Bay on Waiheke Island, where it was deliberately scuttled. https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/two-men-found-guilty-scuttling-boat-in-marine-reserve-near-waiheke-island Quote Link to post Share on other sites
