    They are looking for a less maintainance intensive replacement with a steel hull. They are making arrangement for a stop-gap vessel & places on a Norwegian programme.

    Goldie,

    you may find it funny but it's actually a legitimate concern for some people.


    however, it's not a reason in its own right to leave her sitting at the bottom of the sea *sigh*

    Some very well equiped divers being where she is and how deep. Not an easy dive by any stretch of the imagination!

    I thought this was funny.

    The Board also took into account the view that parents of potential trainees (particularly those with no sailing experience) may be reluctant to allow their children to sail on a vessel that has sunk.

    Some "answers".
    http://debates.oireachtas.ie/DDebate...Node=H2&Page=3
    What is happening with regard to the Asgard? How many more surveys must we have to decide whether to raise it from the seabed? What recommendation was made by the Asgard board with regard to salvage in its report, which was leaked to the Irish Independent last Sunday? What is in that report?
    The position with regard to the Asgard II is with the Minister for decision. He stated that he expects to make a decision in the very near future and I do not feel I should comment further on this matter.
    181. Deputy Brian O’Shea asked the Minister for Defence if he has received the recommendation of Coiste an Asgard regarding the proposed salvaging of the Asgard II (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter. [5414/09]

    Minister for Defence (Deputy Willie O’Dea): I have received the recommendation of the Board of Coiste an Asgard regarding the proposed salvage of Asgard II and I will be announcing my decision in the matter in the coming days.

    Has a member of your family Crewed on the Asgard
