20th June 2014
It is not my intention to keep my website up-to-date with what other people do to my ships I have owned or worked on. I like to follow these ships in the background. I had the chance to sail the Hornblower to the yard on the 7th June 2014. A few days later, she was dry docked.
A few days later, the new owners called me telling the yard costs are to expensive and they will scrap the boat. I went to the yard and had a look. It is sad to see her in a condition I will not further describe....
I will remember the Hornblower as my yacht, where I had a laugh and a cry, where I met nice people, where friends helped painting and the ship I have done the most welding jobs by myself. I spent two years converting her, making her looking shining again.
Thanks to all my friends in the support of saving the Hornblower in 2011. I will not save her again.
PS: For all the people who follow my website: Don't send me pictures from her at the scrapyard!
