Hiyo!

Check out this petition, I know it should be on the SHIII/SHIV forums, but it was on "Flight Journal"'s website http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Why would they even consider cutting it to pieces? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

Thank you for bringing this to our/my attention. I signed it - but am dubious of my/our influence. Fingers crossed.

why would someone in their right mind cut it up, it is of great historical value. We have to think about future generations wanting to see it aswell, what if someone had burned up the mayflower, or HMS victory. It may not be famous, but still it has earned it's place in history.
I strongly believe that u-534 is worth more than the sum of it's parts.

I agree and I signed the petition. It seems that the world has pretty much forgotten about any war prior to the Vietnam war and things such as U-534 are more of an eye sore and a waste of good real estate than anything else. So in the interest of money, things like this get sold for scrap metal value and the land is "developed" into something that will generate income for the investor.

Those who do not know their history are doomed to repeat its mistakes.

I wonder if any of the crew was still on board when it was raised? If so, you'd think the German government would object to its being cutup.

Did anyone read the linked pages??? They are not cutting it up for scrap...they are cutting it into 3 pieces so it can be moved to a new site.

News in June 2007 report that the boat will be cut in 3 parts (in Sept) and then moved on the Mersey River and finally put on display there at Woodside. The boat has been bought by Merseytravel who plan to use it as a tourist attraction. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

I'm not sure that cutting it into manageable pieces so it can be moved is such a bad thing...It sounds like it will have a permanent home.
