National Historic Ships: Information Audit
National Historic Ships, a Non-Departmental Public Body advising the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport on national historic ship preservation, has commissioned an Infrastructure Audit of all skills and facilities available for the repair and maintenance of historic vessels in the UK.
The information gathered will be published on National Historic Ships’ website in spring 2008, allowing visitors instant access to a nationwide database of services in the form of a readily searchable gazetteer of contact details.
Please contact the consultant engaged in this project if you can supply any information on existing facilities, as well as details of resources which may have been missing or hard to find during a vessel restoration or annual refit. A survey form is available to download from www.nhsc.org.uk.
