Verados anyone?

Me and the lads went down to the beach earlier today and bagged this little lot.

Anyone interested in a 275 Verado?

My next RIB is having 4 of them

I would like to agree with you, really I would,I would love to stop and talk but I am in a hurry so excuse me please,,,,,Taxi, I said TAXI, Lyme bay please and hurry,

I hope everybody gets the lot and it is spread evenly with a little for everyone,

Taxi would you hurry up please. I said lyme Bay, or Slime Bay, yep the oil is leaking and I believe its 2 stroke....

Seriously, there are a lot of people here who should be strung up over this fiasco.
I do believe that if my belongings were in as long as its not photos, I will take the money thanks and buy new ones, not sure how I would welcome all my gear back several months later, rotted. Yep Take the money.

Meanwhile, dont mind your BMW etc, it will cost you the tax payer much more than a few BMW when they finish mopping up the mess.
Besides if we found one in ireland, we would have to pay Importation Tax called VRT on it, so I cannot afford to find any on the beach.

I hope you get it all, that is all they deserve, and forget the personal belongings,,, Enjoy it, go on!

salvage

It makes me laugh
they can't see the bigger picture
What good is any of that stuff washed up going to be after tonight's weather and a few more tides . it will be spread all over the beaches for miles in a day or two .

the so called thieves are doing everyone a favour in my opinion .

It also makes a change for people to travel from far and wide to clean up the beaches , they spend most of the summer travelling from far and wide to leave thier crap on the beaches

The authorities should encourage the beach combers , they would probably find it the cheapest way to clean up the mess .

why can't the official salvors get there until tomorrow anyway ?

Its like dropping a bag of chips in Polperro then complaining that seaguls have cleaned them up

Noooo, they're like seagulls! - have you ever watched them attack a bin bag? - they rip it to shreds and then everything gets scattered everywhere - take a look in the papers this morning, there's s**t allover the heritage coast! whereas it would have been nice and sealed inside a big container.

So theres a nice shiney bike needing selling on, how would one register it? Presumably the DVLA will have all the "VIN" numbers if bikes use this system so if you want to ride it here you'll struggle. So it'll have to be got rid of abroad.....best idea would be to collect them all up and put them in a container........

So ride it around illeagally? The police may be on the lookout for them just a thought probably a long shot.

Or last idea, take as much as you can store fill in the paperwork, charge for transport, PPE, unsocial hours, overtime, storage...then wait for the reciver to do their job whilst you claim salvage or whatever it is.

Meanwhile the beach has most of the larger items removed thus reducing clean up costs etc. Ofcourse what is actually illegal here is the bloke in the street getting something good for "free" unlike our poor old MPs who have to slog their guts out night and day playing croquet etc. Just an observation

So, do you think that those smaller items were not in nice neat and easily handled containers to start with? The mess is being caused by the scavenging “Seagulls” (Nice analogy WavecrossChris) opening the stuff up and scattering it around in their hunt for “the good stuff”…

There you are driving down to the Beach to do a bit of “salvaging”, with your wife in the car ..when you skid on the Ice and smack into a tree.. the Weather forecast was for Ice, but you thought it would be worth a chance to make a profit…. Unfortunately your wife suffers whiplash, so you go with her to the hospital leaving your car at the side of the road knowing that the Police will look after it… when you get back you see that local youths have opened up the boot of your car and scattered all your personal possession along the road and taken away your laptop and golf clubs from the boot… the Policeman says he’s told the chaps responsible to give you a call in a day or two….They say they’ll return them if you pay out their hourly rate and reimburse then for the trouble they went to prize open your boot in the first place…….

The "seagulls" cannot actually claim ownership of the goods until a year after they have salvaged them. For the first year the official owners can claim the goods back and have to pay a salvage fee to receive it.

Therefore, due to the worth of the goods, I'd suggest salvaging a BMW bike is not worth the effort, as it is most likely to be reclaimed. Where as salvaging perfumes etc, which are much less likely to be reclaimed, is best as after a year (if not reclaimed) they can be sold on quite profitably.
