It’s long overdue, but now it is finally happening. On 12/27/19, almost two years and four months after Irma, the removal of wrecked boats in Trellis Bay began as the BVI continued its effort to rid the islands of derelict boats.
In May, as part of its Derelict Vessel Removal Project, the BVI Government had announced plans to remove over 200 wrecked and abandoned boats that still remained after Irma. Now it looks like they are making good on that promise.
The wrecked vessels have been a major eyesore, for residents and visitors alike and it will be great to see Trellis Bay finally cleaned up.
