Very sad end, you can see the tie straps are there so possibly missed one or two allowing a vehicle or two to swing about in rough seas. I hope he got insurance out of it and bought it back as a wreck.

Only just appeared on ebay locally overnight. I'll see if I can hear crying, then the owner is likely to be nearby :(

OMG that sucks hope he was up front with the insurance company I know a lot of people try to under state the value of the car to save on import tax.
