The Golden Hind is up for sale (for approx. £1.25 million) and is very likely to go abroad. The dry dock is quite small and the chances of finding another interesting boat to fill it are apparently slim. It will be missed in Bankside.
Does anyone have strong views about its sale and/or does anyone know what the likelihood is of getting Southwark Council
to buy it, or other public bodies to fund it?
