Put an offer in.

Fingers crossed.
Some of the details are funny. Once purchased "you are allowed to touch the wreck..."

I would have thought that after spending quarter of a £million on it - you could do anything you want? ;)

Wtf would you do with it.
Haven't the foggiest.

It can't even be worth anywhere near the asking price in scrap or else the Chinese would be all over that already.

Very odd thing to try and flog on eBay.

They are protected so you can’t scrap them - many were scrapped and these are now of historical interest.

You also can't touch or get within one meter of the wreck unless you own it.
but I don't think you can stop other people from diving around it, as long as they don't touch.

So essentially you're buying f**k-all.

Good for pub talk. Like sticking a turbo on an otherwise standard clio. 'My car is 300bhp m8'

What were they asking to begin with?? A million quid or something?

You can't use modern steel in things that require exceptionally low radioactivity (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Low-background_steel). Since nuclear weapons testing started in the 40s, all modern steel carries a small but significant amount of radioactive material that makes it less than ideal for that kind of application.

Steel manufactured prior to nuclear weapons testing can be used for these applications and in fact a large amount of steel for these modern instruments came from the scuttled ships in Scapa flow just like these.

Not sure what price you'd get for it nowadays as the background radiation is falling all the time so it's probably not as valuable as it once was.
