Landmark Derelict Falls Apart

I took the above photo last spring while in Mestre.
The derelict craft which has been a fixture on the property for a very long time has become a landmark.

With a bright blue hull and the name "JOHNSON" on the bow, she has served as a huge planter box as well as a sort of makeshift bulletin board.

Here's a photo I took of Tim Reinard reading some of the bulletins posted there. Or was he contemplating purchasing the big blue boat?
As they say:
"All good things must come to an end".
With the heavy rains this season, the big barca finally came apart.
Nereo Zane was there to take pictures, and has posted a collection of them on his blog.

Hi to all the readers. There's a little upgrade to this story: the Jonhson remains have been removed during the last week. Amen
