we arrived yesterday at trizonia island in the corinth gulf, and thought we'd check out the marina.
this marina was built only a few years back, however has never gone into official operation. this is typical of many such marina projects through greece that were built in recent years (with eu money), are never completed and don't go into service. this of course doesn't stop squatters moving in, the occasional cruiser dropping by, thinking cool i've found somewhere free to stay. there are no services (water and power) and no one there to look after the place, so after a few years the place basically decays, or as we'd say back home goes to shit.
upon arrival we motored into the marina, did one lap of the place, didn't like the feel of it and went back out and anchored in the bay.
we got in the dingy and went in to check it out a bit closer. the sunken wreck was actually once quite a decent boat and has been lying there for about 2 years. no one seems too interested in salvaging it though.
there are a couple of other completely sunken boats and many interesting floating wrecks, surely all with there own hard luck story behind them.
