Dump Boat in India When Done

Beach in India Where Ships Are Dumped

Beach in India Where Ships Are Dumped

Apparently, there’s a beach in India where ship operators dump their ships and then Indians scrap em out. They just drive em in and beach em at high tide and then they’re stuck and ready to be recycled.

This is the cheapest way to get rid of a ship, because “1st world” ship demolition is very expensive due to environmental and safety regulation.

According to Wikipedia,  the locals dig the ship breaking industry because it gives them decent paying, though extremely dangerous jobs. And the closest hospital is 50 miles away.

Look at the oil and sludge oozing out of em.

That’s some wild shit.
