Hi Rupert,

What you say above is very true, I'm glad more people are finally realising it! However I'm not sure what other peoples 'help and views' will do - the NCT is appointed by the DSD who own her, so it's unlikely that a few protesting voices will be able to change the management. More likely that the DSD would point to the conservation management plan and the 2.27m grant as proof of the success of the NCT.

I think it's inevitable that she will end up as a nasty pastiche of all things 'olde worlde' with a bit of a maritime theme. It must be remembered that even though the conservation management plan calls for a full and authentic restoration, including engines, (and actually encouraging the ship to be operated on trips), the NCT can ignore all of that advice. It is also laughable that the NCT have a figure of 5m for her restoration, which was quoted BEFORE the CMP was even completed - how can you say how much the work will cost before you even know what work needs to be done! Just another example of the NCT nonsense.

It's ludicrous to see those photos of her hull rusting and covered in mussels (and the area stinking because of them!), when a volunteer group could be cleaning them off and giving her a lick of paint to protect her for the time being. Unfortunately the NCT are too pig headed and selfish about the ship to allow that to happen, and the disintegration of the NPS over the last year or two might not even allow such a group to be assembled. It's all a very big mess.

Keith
