The story here is that, some years ago, a local scrapyard amassed a huge collection of old boats for salvage purposes. Unable to get to them all (or even, it seems, a fraction of them), time and weather took their toll and the vessels fell apart and sank into the mud. Now, the latest development — though the scrapyard seems to still be there, its operations have retracted somewhat from the main bulk of the tugboats and barges, their fate perhaps even more uncertain.
