City of Adelaide lifeboat facing relocation in rubbish dump

It seems that the City of Adelaide lifeboat is now facing relocation in the rubbish dump at Port Lincoln. Council there is considering a proposal to preserve the wreck at the local dump. The vessel is now owned by the Dept for Environment & Heritage and it is in a sad state of decay. The Axel Stenross Maritime Museum has been appealing for funds to restore it. The lifeboat was removed from Porter Bay, Pt Lincoln 25 years ago to make way for the new marina. It was placed in the Museum where it was expected to undergo conservation. Unfortunately, that never happened. The museum couldn't afford to do it.
