Amazing how well preserved it is.
Yes it has shown us… Endurance….
I’m here just two more nights. Tell your friends and be sure to tip your waitress.
Truly remarkable video. I wonder if the ship could be raised and preserved.
One thing about the story is odd, however. Shackleton went for help, but didn’t tell anyone about the wreck until he reached South Georgia. One would think that he’d have at least made a stop in Maine, or maybe Massachusetts (gesundheit), New York, Washington DC, or some other state along the way. Was he maybe anxious to get to Florida?
Is there any place safer than where it is now?
