Yeah I know, but I suppose it's about what people value. Even the very thought of someone buying one of his pices of "art" as an investment sounds so fu*ked up ::):

It could be worse, it could be Tracey Emin who is getting 9.5 million. Now that would be a waste of money!

If it happens, I'll get pictures of its new home sometime when I'm down.

It actually sounds like the muppets are more interested in "deconstruction" than seeing if the people from sunderland are serious.
Though this really should come as no surprise.
After all Irvine could not save her so lets piss rip those who might incase it makes us look bad.
If cheese gets mouldy you throw it out...
Why buy it mouldy in the first place ?

It's distressing to think of the money that's being thrown at the Cutty Sark when there's bugger aw left of her and here we have something eminently salvageable, largely original and rotting to mush. 'kin' outrageous.

Seems like there's some positive noises. Whether it will ever happen is anyone's guess.

Councillor occupies historic ship
The City of Adelaide
The ship has been rotting on the quayside at Irvine

A protester has occupied the remains of the world's oldest surviving clipper ship which is scheduled for demolition at the Scottish Maritime Museum.

Peter Maddison, a councillor from Sunderland where the City of Adelaide was built in 1864, heads a campaign to have the vessel returned home.

if the 20m was found to "restore" her there would be bugger all left of the original and a lot of time and money would be spent conserving the few original bits, either build a replica using modern materials or let the carrick fo to the great shipyard in the sky. i am all for preservation but there comes a time when economics have to come into play

Contrast that with what is/was planned for the Cutty Sark....well worth saving imho.

Fresh bid to salvage historic Scots ship


Published on 20 Jan 2010

When the City of Adelaide docked in Australia in 1865, her cargo of Scots migrants was welcomed with fireworks and open arms.

Now, a century and a half later, she lies derelict and forgotten in Irvine, threatened with demolition in the face of dwindling funds.

This sorry situation could be about to change, however, through the last-minute intervention of a group of Australians, determined to salvage the historic clipper – formerly known as the HMS Carrick – for their own national good.

The Government-backed delegation is to meet Culture Minister Fiona Hyslop today for talks they say could secure the vessel’s future as a museum in the city that bears its name.
