    We do a lot of talking about designing and building boats but very little about getting rid of them. There's a few derelicts in our boatyard but I think one of these would make short work of them!!! :p

    That was the most fun I have had for years!

    Now if we could just get a portable one , it would be a great help to remove those cars that dive into the parking lot that we have been waiting 3 minutes for. Imagine the faces when they come back from shopping to see their car in 1000 pieces......

    If there are boats around that need this sort of treatment, then they must be pretty sorry.

    What an excellent machine! i can think of quite a few uses, there are even some new boats that deserve to go under it.
    Of course a use for an old GRP hull is to bury it in the garden, they make lovely pond liners.
