Default Washed up Lumber

Hi All,
Here are a few photos of lumber that was washed up on our beaches, from a ship that sank. All of it was white pine and red pine that was PAR( plained all round) most of it was about 18 foot long and of all different sizes, and looked very good. There were loads of people going down with cars vans trucks trying to collect it, but the police put a stop to that under orders from the salvage company. Anybody caught removeing any were subject to a $4000 fine, mind you who would want to make anything out of it as it was out of the sea and wet through with salt. They are going to collect it all up and turn it into MDF, so your next piece of 8 x 4 sheet just may of come from our beaches on the south coast of the UK.

I suppose they could build some large silos for storing salt, as they do for wheat, just another of my ideas Pete.
