Yes it is a quite drastic move. On the other hand, some these vessels have been idle (cold stacked?) for quite some time, and the large vessels are early Chinese builds, so perhaps they were not yet up to the quality level of other ships of similar age.

By the way, the one you mention as the ex-JOHN P. LABORDE has been identified as the ex-C.E. LABORDE JR. instead (IMO 9259812):

The ex FS AQUARIUS, FS PEGASUS and FS PEGASUS under demolition at Dales Marine in Leith, Scotland. The ex FS TAURUS is alongside the locks with the ROCKWATER 1 and SEVEN NAVICA. I would think the Rockwater 1 wil head for scrap as well in the near future.

Dales Marine have just finished scrapping the ex VOS LISMORE and VOS RAASAY

ROCKWATER 1 also sold for scrap indeed, seen in Facebook group "supply boat history". SEVEN NAVICA also highly likely to be scrapped as her replacement has been ordered at IHC and she herself has been idle for some years now I believe.
