Destined To Be a Reef

By Tina_Michelle
This is a tug boat that was pulled into our local down town marina..a very rusted and derelict looking thing..sort of creepy looking in a way when viewed up close. And funy thing I had never seen a tug boat up close before. After taking this image..I went back to the site and there is now a banner attached to the boat explaining that it is destined to become a man made reef for the local divers and fishermen to use.

(Thank you to all previous comments/visitors. So very much appreciated. And thank you for taking the time to stop by my portfolio..I hope that you enjoy some of my images. Feel free to leave a comment or critique. )

I love it, reef or no reef, I hate see ships beeing sunk,have worked with them all my life. But i like the image. It is something strong about it.

Welcome back Tina. Sounds like this tug will have a useful retirement.

Hey Tina!! hope all is well with you and your family! Summer holidays - are you getting a break?
We get tug boats in our harbour sometimes and have seen some very weathered ones too - cool that this one will be for divers!
