21st August, 2011
The historic Steam Packet vessel "Manxman" will finally sail into oblivion later this year as all rescue attempts have been exhausted.
The Manxman, last of the Steam Packets traditional passenger vessels and which ended her 28 years of service with the company in 1982, inspired hundreds to join in a desperate bid to save her, but despite sterling efforts by a team who even formed a charitable trust the ship will soon be dismantled.
