You find lots of odd things around a marine shipyard. I'm sure this engine was pulled for some problem, and the intent was to repair it "some day." But for now it sits amid junk and gets overgrown by untended vegetation.

Nature takes back its rights and invades this old machine. It would be worthwhile to clean these invading branches to further enhance this veteran wich have a nice rust. Beautiful photo
