Manxman to be scrapped.(Read 9682 times)
Manxman to be scrapped. on: April 27, 2010, 10:52:15 pm
In a deeply regratable move it has been decided that 1955 vetran Isle Of Mann Staem Packet ferry Manxman , which for the last few years has been at the center of a preservation attempt , is now to be broken up due to her detiroriating condition and failure to secure an appropriate berth for her.
The trust behind the ships preservation will be selling memorabilia from onboard as well as many fixtures and fittings before being wound up when the vessel is destroyed.
Below from www.shipspotting.com , the Manxman in Holyhead in 1979 , and more recently in the drydock where she has been stored since taking on water while moored.
