"BTW Gord, I didn't mean any disrespect by adding that comment about needing a good trust fund to keep up the Bluenose II. I guess that was kinda crass, like saying I wonder if the folks in the states have a maintenance fund for the Statue of Liberty."
Ain't it the truth, Without a good funding base, excellent PR and a very visible public mission, these ships will just disappear. Look at the trouble the Virginia is having. There are several other quasi government and museum ships in trouble as well.
