Please help save the SAS Somerset/HMS Barcross

Hi all..

This is an urgent message to bring attention to the soon to be scrapping of the HMS Barcross/SAS Somerset.

This is the only remaining boom defense vessel in the world, and was preserved as a Museum ship in Cape Town, South Africa until they allowed her to decay to the point, where it is no longer financially viable to repair her...

Here is some more info

and here is a petition I started, to see her
