    I know the old man who owned that boat. It was the one thing you looked forward to doing – going down to the beach to work on his boat. He used to live in those apartments across the road before being ‘moved’. He is also the man responsible for those gorgeous beach glass sculptures on the beach. If this was arson then shame on those people. They’ve taken away a man’s passion.
