I'm sure most have heard about the long awaited discovery of the HMS Ontario found in over 500 ft of water in Lake Ontario. The ship went down in 1778 with a full crew, full armaments and a load of prisoners that were being transported to a new prison. To my knowledge the locations has remained a secret while the legal owners, the British government and the State of New York and Canada ponder its fate. My idea is to bring the ship up whole and complete. Unfortunately this would cost an unbelievable amount of money. With the state of the economy this would even be harder. But let's just say that money was no object. How could this be done and what would be the benefits to humanity. To bring it up would require building a giant under water aquarium consisting of a bottom approximately 30X90 feet and four sides say 30X30 (2) and 90X30 (2). All would have to be assembled by deep divers somehow lifting the ship up slightly to slide the bottom piece under the ship and then attaching all four side. After this was completed then the whole unit would be attached to large cranes on a ship and very slowly brought to the surface where it could then be transported to a land side to put into an environmentally controlled building where the water temperature could be kept cold and chemicals added to prevent deterioration of the wood etc. It this was possible would it be worth the effort. It would be the only intact war ship of the Revolutionary War period. I suppose that part of the upkeep for the ship could be made by charging a fee for people to observe the ship through portholes in the walls etc. How could the required amount of money be raised? This are all good questions with very few answers. Well what do you all think?
