Enjoying a morning walk along the canal towpath, I came across this sorry-looking specimen.
Out came the Pocket2 for a closer look.
I think it's safe to say, Tallulah has taken her last journey.

Oh yeah, Tallulah is done.  Nice captures.  I see you wrestled the Pocket2 back from the Mrs.  LOL.

Haha. I set off for my early morning walk before she got out of bed.  No contest

Thanks Depp. Many of the varied canal boats along this stretch are colourful and well-maintained. Occasionally though, one comes across a neglected or abandoned hulk like this, which spoils the ambience.

Thanks AJ.  It's a bit of an eyesore, really. Most of the towpath walk is picturesque and has many colourful craft moored here and there.

Had to look it up
The name Tallulah is a girl's name of Irish, Native American origin meaning "lady of abundance, or leaping water

I think that craft has taken its last leap - but it does now have an abundance of water aboard

Depends on time, money and motivation I guess but yeah, something needs to be done - that’s a health hazard!

It's an eyesore for sure. But there are a number of those along the canal, where standards are beginning to slip.

First impressions are good. One issue of accessory storage ( wide angle lens) for which you may have seen my thread in the Osmo Pocket section entitled "A word of Warning"  The weather has beem quite miserable there last few days with non-stop rain so I can't get out and test the Pano function which I'm itching to try.  Just practice in the house

Perhaps the authorities need to step in as an H&S issue for the public - boats like that are a haven for rats

I would expect the Rivers and Inland Waterways Authority to step in before long.

I've really no idea how old it is.  But from memory it has been there for a number of years without moving, and has slowly started to take on water. Then eventually sunk to the bottom.
