A search for the cause of the “runny-meadow” phenomenon at the world’s largest boatyard has found no trace of the popular blue-and-yellow dye used by boats.
Wroxham, in Essex, was once home to some of the worlds largest, most luxurious and most profitable boatyards, including the world-famous Yachts of St Andrew, the home of the famous St Andrew and the Great Yacht of St George.
The “runneled” hull of the Great Sea-Tower, built in 1597, was sold for $2 million in 1894 to British businessman James Bond and the first yacht of the Bond dynasty, the Triton, was built in 1935.
In 2006, it was acquired by the yacht-builder Sir James Bond.
The Great Yachting Museum in St Pauls, Surrey, is a museum dedicated to the history of sailing vessels and their owners.
Its director, Peter Beattie, told The Telegraph that it was “a very strange phenomenon” that “never occurred before” and that it is not believed to have been caused by pollution.
It was only in 2013 that it happened again, when a man, whose name was not released, was spotted in a photo at the Great Seaside Boatyard in Newport, England, apparently trying to wash the hull off the shipyard’s docks.
He had “no clothes on”, but had been seen wearing a blue “blue and yellow” shirt.
The incident, he said, showed “that this is a very rare phenomenon”.
“The water quality in the Great Ocean is excellent, so it’s a very unique phenomenon,” he added.
The museum’s director, Paul O’Sullivan, told the newspaper: “There’s no reason to think that it’s any environmental pollution, or to think it’s something caused by pollutants.”
But, he added: “We don’t think the boatyards have been compromised.
If anything it could be the work of a lot of people, because we see lots of boats being towed in.”‘
We were just in a bad place’While the Great Sailship Museum in the city of Portsmouth was not affected by the runny-mud, it did have a long history of dredging and removing boats from the docks.
It has been at the forefront of a campaign to stop dredging, as has the Great Britain Dockyard, which owns the Great Wreck, the world famous wreck of a warship that sank in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Portugal in 1789.
The owners of the Wreck were given the responsibility of ensuring the safety of the ship and its crew, and in 2018, a year after the Great Tide, the UK government banned dredging for 30 years.
The Wreck has been one of the most visited places in the UK, attracting around 1.3 million visitors each year.
