Here's one for Earth Day
According to the SSCS disinformation site they dismantled most of the equipment themselves, and then “sold” the hull in 1992. Actually they abandoned it and it sat for 12 years before it was finally taken care of by Canada’s Ship-source Oil Pollution Fund(SOPF.) They would have done it sooner but there are lots of irresponsible criminal douchebags illegally dumping their scows and they have limited funds each year.

Sea Shepherd II
In April 2004, the MV Sea Shepherd II, located in Robbers Pass, Tzartus Island [also in Barkley Sound], was in a derelict state and in danger of sinking. By May 11, 2004, 188 tonnes of a mixture of waste oil and diesel was pumped off the Sea Shepherd II, but some 16 gallons per hour of seawater was leaking back into the vessel. On May 26, 2004, the vessel was taken in tow, arriving at the Esquimalt graving dock the next day for break up. By June 17, 2004, seven large waste bins of oiled debris had been removed from the vessel. By July 30, 2004, the break up of the vessel had been completed. Cost to SOPF: $331,892.31 plus interest

“2.6 Sea Shepherd II (2004)
In April 2004, the Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) received a number of reports that the MV Sea Shepherd II, located in Robbers Pass, Tzartus Island, British Columbia, was in a derelict state and in danger of sinking. The CCG, TCMS, and Provincial authorities attended on-scene to investigate. It was concluded that the vessel’s condition made it a threat to the marine environment. The ownership of the vessel could not be determined, so no assistance was forthcoming from that quarter. A Response Order under CSA section 678 was issued on April 26, 2004, by the Commissioner of the Canadian Coast Guard”.
Here let’s look at some pictures of the derelict scow of a threat to the marine environment that Watson dumped because he loves the Earth so much.
