Time to sell it to a private investor. The job will actually get done then, and he or she will still probably exhibit the final product.

Exactly.

The Navy raised the Monitor as a sort of enhanced training exercise. It’s time for a group to form, raise money & eventually exhibit the Monitor relics. Otherwise, they never should have raised it in the first place. (that’s my frustration showing).

The U.S.S. Monitor is still a NAVY ship owned by the US Government. Due to its historic importance, by law they may not sell it. It is rightly the property of the American people.

I have worked on many, many public and private historic preservation projects over the years. I’d be willing to bet far more than anybody here. The Federal government does a far better job than most state governmenst. Private organizations tend to do the worst.

Just telling it like it is.
