  1. This individual could not afford to dispose of it in the correct way. Some one left a fibreglass boat on our road, not 3 miles from the dump, so my thoughts here are he took it to the dump and was going to get charged 100’s of dollars to do it the right way but did not have the funds! So there is another way. Dump and run! Nice to see them on patrol!
