A boat severely damaged in a fire at Careys Bay two years ago
is set to be consigned to scrap.
Fire ripped through the junk-filled vessel Neptune on
the afternoon of January 2, 2012.
Port Otago commercial manager Peter Brown said the former
North Sea trawler had been moved from Careys Bay to Dunedin's
Kitchener St wharf.
The interior and fuel had been removed and ''the next step is
to scrap it''. On Thursday, the vessel sank and was later
refloated, he said.
Any money from scrapping the vessel would be returned to the
port company, he said.
