    An interesting piece of news...I've seen this boat close up, or what's left of it.

    It's been in a bit of a state for years now, several pieces have been robbed off it (how on earth anybody managed to remove pieces of it is beyond me, considering where it lays) It's a shame it can't be removed and put on display somewhere for all to see, but I guess financial restraints have put paid to that, plus it's very fragile, and it would take some real heavy lifting equipment with very skilled operators to move it without it falling to pieces.
