  1. Tripoli by the sounds of it was not worth keeping. Much like a lot of the driftwood and seaweed that washes up every now and then and has nowhere to go.

    I normally burn it, although it does not last for long on the fire as is nothing but a shell of whatever structure it once was.

    “Vermin of the ocean” us real sailors call it.
