High and dry, and seemingly rotting away.

A very sad sight - she could look so much better and give pleasure as a museum or something like that - if a saviour came along. She could also come home too.

I agree with you Chris, it's very bad that a vessel which gave pleasure to thousands during her years on the Mersey both as a ferry and a cruise vessel, where dances were held in her quarters could not be refurbished and brought back to life.
Even a Museum Ship would I'm sure be very acceptable to the public as she was
treasured by us Merseysiders.

Best Regards
Keith
