You could try these guys, they may take it for free but you would have to take it to them.
It won't matter to them if it does not float, in fact they want it to sink!

Good luck

Murray,

What caused it? I heard about the fire about a week ago,along with the story came the fact that it was an electric fire left aboard. I have sent this to someone who thinks leaving a dehumidafier running all the time is a good thing.

bad luck, hope the insurance don't play silly buggers.

The insurance is agreed..as the fire was a couple of months ago,. although personally, my view is that the condition of the boat will never be compensated fully, as she was in immaculate condition, and you would not find another example like it. She was dads pride & Joy.

Nothing was connected at the time, no gas or power, and all isolators off, so nothing left 'powered up'. The marine surveyor suspects a battery in the forward cabin which may have powered the bow thruster and windlass, or a harness connected to it, I have yet to see the actual report, but its been a terrible loss and the total devastation is unbelievable .. still it could have happened at sea, so there is that to be thankful for, although she was fitted with smoke alarms, at least no one was hurt
