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...
