          Not yet David, the hope to do the sonar search next year. Pictured are 3 of the 4 runnable hercules engines with the 4th under restoration.

              There's no great need to rush, as it is still at the bottom of the sea somewhere off the Hebrides, exact location and condition uncertain.

                  That's an awful lot of exhaust pipes to re-route.
