It is now 25 years since the "City of Adelaide" lifeboat was removed from Porter Bay, Pt Lincoln to make way for the new marina. It was placed in the Axel Stenross Maritime Museum where it was expected to undergo conservation. Unfortunately, that never happened. The museum couldn't afford to do it. The vessel is now owned by the Dept for Environment & Heritage and it is in a sad state of decay. The museum is now appealing for funds to restore it.
