    WI do sell them on, these are the ones they put up earlier this month https://www.waterwaysireland.org/Documents/Tender%20for%20Boat%20Removal%20September%202020%20Pictures.pdf you get a day to look over them and then put in a bid, a notice of the next lot will be put on the WI web site and an add will be in the paper.

    Remember there is no such thing as a cheep boat :)
