Has anyone seen the article in the Southern Daily Echo, a Southampton Daily Paper about the Queen Mary. A wealthy businessman, the CEO of Kingfisher Publishing in Weymouth, has apparantly pledged to have the old Mary towed from her present home via Cape Horn to Southampton where he intends to arrange for her to be berthed in Southampton Docks for the same purposes as her present owners.

I have not seen the article myself, but heard of it from another web site, I seem to remember Steve last year mentioning a possible plan to bring her home. It will be very interesting to see what the outcome is.

One of the owners has said" no way is she leaving the USA and thats final." Plus the fact it would cost 30 million to bring her here ( or $?)
