How to put an old boat down?

Friend of mine has had a bit of an issue with a boat breaking loose and crushing his sailing boat.

He has been paid out by the insurance, but is now left with a hull, and is not sure how to dispose of it. of course he would like to get a much as he can for the engine etc..

I've never had to write a boat off/ dispose of one before so any ideas would be appreciated.

Here is the damage...

if the insurance has paid out for a write off then the old boat should belong to the insurer, therefore it is their responsibility to dispose of it; it would also therefore be opening a can of worms to start selling bits off.

Yep.

I'd be looking for clarification from the insurance co. before doing anything with it, plus billing them for the mooring it's on.

Yep that is the normal process with a total loss - unless the insured party has come to some arrangement to retain the damaged item for salvage/scrap value and knocked an amount off the payment as a result, the wreckage will belong to the insurers and they can dispose of it as they see fit. I've unfortunately just had a situation like that with 50k worth of vehicles that have been written off en route to here, so I've had to do a bit of research into how it works

Hope Roy has packed the Wolf better than Landrover did the vehicles.

I am hoping that ship has a little more luck too

It was the carrier at fault - vehicles carried on deck where they never should have been in the first place ... freak wave ... splat ... roof ends up down by gear lever (no exaggeration). Representations have been made that Wolfie may be a boat and therefore waterproof but it will go below decks please

Packing-wise she's wrapped up snugger than a bug in a rug, Roy went to town on that part of it
