Rumour has it that the date has been set for the 29th March.

Aparently she will be towed out early in the morning, and then they will spend approx 6 hours setting the charges, so that will give people time to get there.

Obviously this is all weather dependent.

I stress that the 29th is only a rumour. I have my collegues in Brixham trying to find out, as soon as a date goes firm, I will let you know.

Were my ears deceiving me or did I hear on the local TV news this morning that the sinking is TODAY?

I 'think' that they are announcing the date today.

But I would not swear to that in a court of law.

Aah, it's the ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE DATE of the sinking that will be today, not the sinking itself then!
Phew. Thought I had missed it for a few seconds there!

Thanks Alex.
