Anyone want to buy a ship?

SMS Konig Scapa Flow WW1 German Battleship Shipwreck | eBay

SMS Karlsruhe Scapa Flow WW1 Cruiser Shipwreck | eBay

SMS Kronprinz Wilhelm Scapa Flow WW1 German Battleship Shipwreck | eBay

SMS Markgraf Scapa Flow WW1 German Battleship Shipwreck | eBay

From the particulars:

'The new owner will be able to dive on Markgraf, including touching and entering the wreck, and also to salvage items from Markgraf (subject to gaining the necessary permissions). They will own a warship with a greater displacement than HMS Ark Royal and if they purchase all 4 wrecks, will have a sizable naval fleet amongst the largest in the world.'...

Bit of tank tape and a couple of bunggees and she's good to go.

Hooray for T-Cut

Konig's bell may be in a dive club somewhere.....

Aren’t these wrecks the world’s main source of steel for delicate scientific instruments (as any steel smelted since 1945 is contaminated with radioactive material)?

It would be fun to put on my FAC ticket though
Erm, Mr C-B, about those 305mm L50s...and 500 rounds to hold...just which range did you propose using them on, again ?

Although not necessarily in the right place to be of use to anyone.....

Shot, as in live ammo? Or blank?
