Hi guys,
We recently had a (rain filled :cry: ) week away in Donegal. While there we visited the area's infamous shipwreck. Posting here as there's some great inspiration here for anyone that may build a ship, shipwreck, wooden structure or even weathered metals of various types. Here's some basic info from the Wild Atlantic Way website:

"Cara Na Mara“ Bunbeg - An Bun Beag
On Maheraclogher beach near Bunbeg Cara Na Mara stranded in the 1970s.
The wreck, simply called Eddie's boat (Bád Eddie) by the locals, has since
become a popular attraction.
