Mega One Triton Exposed
Daytime long exposure of the Mega One Triton Shipwreck on Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos. 45 second exposure with ND10 filter.
'There is still no decision on the fate of Mega One Triton, the derelict vessel grounded on Governor’s Beach, as the matter is still before courts.
The vessel, which has become an eyesore, started life as a tender vessel supplying offshore oilrigs.
After it was decommissioned and sold to a retired captain, the ship supplied the Turks and Caicos Islands with building materials from the Dominican Republic for more than 20 years.
Two years ago it was sold to a group believed to be from the Leeward Islands, living in Grand Turk.
The vessel has been lying at anchor just off Governor's Beach ever since, and appeared to be an accident waiting to happen.
Hurricane Sandy did just that on the evening of October 25, 2012.
Since then, the Department of Environment and Maritime Affairs (DEMA) and other government departments have sought advice on options for the successful, safe and legal removal of the vessel from its current resting place.
Unfortunately this has involved a long and rigorous legal process.'
