The Tobruk should remain above water: Letter

I AGREE totally with the idea of J French when she suggests that the Tobruk should remain afloat.

It would be expensive to maintain, but it could be slowly developed into a maritime museum, with an entry fee, and I feel there would be ex-naval personnel who would love to volunteer as guides.

As a tourist attraction it should cater for many more walk on visitors than it would as a swim in destination.

An artificial reef is good, but it can be created from other materials.

It is not too late to have a discussion about the future of the ship.
