Re: Yarrrr me lads, I spies me some booty!

Reminds of a few years back when the tanker hit Branscombe, and the first treasure hunters opened a container to find brand new top of the range BMW motor bikes, which BMW eventually let them keep.
There were 4x4 BMW's, other car parts, even dog food, nappies and perfume.
It makes you wonder what's in the other 516 containers!

Re: Yarrrr me lads, I spies me some booty!

Small point of order, fags that have spent a week in the ocean are still flammable?
Round my way, the scrap metal dealers would empty the contents and take the containers.
But then we don't get that many shipwrecks this far inland. Unless you're out on a Friday night.
Cool There be fags Captain!

Most fags are in an airtight package so should be ok.

They wouldn't be transported on the deck of a ship if the containers leaked. Wink

Same round my way, leave something out the front and it'll be gone in less than an hour.
You see them driving round all the time, and they obviously scope targets (i.e. houses with skips/building works), so they know where to go.
