Historic Scotland looks to make Carrick shipshape
April 29 2010
The A listed ship is currently languishing at Irvine harbour but the heritage warchdog is keen to assess the feasibility of transporting the vessel to Sunderland or South Australia or a “different location” in Scotland.
The Australian city of Adelaide has previously sent a team to inspect the vessel with a view to restoring the ship in recognition of its role in transporting early settlers from Britain to the New World.
The alternative is a managed deconstruction of the ship.
