Does indeed look like a river/canal dredge - probably some bike that was stolen and recovered by this chap a few months later.

Saying that, after living in Plymouth for three years or so a few years back, everything is damp there.... Does wonders for the joints :(

Yeah i know ,they keep falling apart

I use to do a fair bit of sailing and you'd see loads of bikes down the coast and a few months of salty exposure will do this really quickly
Though its usually confined to the chain ,gears etc that have bare metal on them ,coated metal parts usually survive a lot longer
