Well this boat has already come off its mooring ropes three times and drifted away in the night. It has a precarious burner chimney and a tarpaulin on at the same time. Not insured and capable of doing a lot of damage to the surrounding areas if a fire was to start which clearly has all the prerequisites in place already.
Personally, I think the BA should tow it away to a safer location as it is a fire hazard.
As this chap has a history of burning boats down I would say it's imperative that the authorities act now before history repeats itself.

Well I was doing some serious epoxy work in the small window of opportunity I have but with fences piled up high on the boat and a chimney spewing flames and embers out on to a tarpaulin, I decided that it was just too risky to be there. I see a serious risk of fire there to the Falcon, the wherry moored and all else so... I'm out off there.
