Consider burning a GRP hull will give off some seriously nasty fumes........ H&S in mind ! I've seen old hulls, canoes, dinghies etc - 3to 4m at the local tip .

Easiest way is to put it on ebay - start it at 99p and I'm sure someone will take it off your hands.

The H+S Gestapo now travel around the country examining bonfores to make sure they are environmentaly friendly - if they contain tyres or old mattresses etc etc they will dismantle the bonfire - nice to know the Police are doing such a good job...............
