The ship had been through a lot the last 30 years and unfortunatley the lack of finance has took it's toll and the situation is where it is today.

I'll get some video footage up of me onboard again.

:wink:

Some good news it would seem regarding the future of the Carrick!

Sincerely hope it's not a false dawn....better saved and moved down south than demolished and have nothing i reckon.

Hope it all goes well....just have to wait and see.....

That's unfortunate
Had it been saved it would have made an excellent exhibit at the new transport museum alongside the Glenlee.

I didn't know about this.
Just the other Saturday we were sitting about and someone asked what had happened to the Carrick.
I knew it was in a bad way but I never knew it was as bad as this.

It's an effin' disgrace that an historic vessel like this could be allowed to get into that state but then, that's Glasgow Shitty Council for you. A bunch of self serving narrow minded continued page 94

It belonged to the wavy navy who let it sink on at least one occasion.

Right enough bonz. Me and the current Mrs Cyclo were just saying that last night. How does the Carrick differ from the Cutty Sark now they're both hulks?
