MAST STAYS

Mast stays
Divers inspected the Mi Amigo, in the Spring, and announced that the ship was distorting as it sank into the sand. There were plans to raise the Mi Amigo, and in May, Thanet Council announced a proposal to re-float the ship and turn it into a tourist attraction in Ramsgate, Kent. This and other plans for the sunken ship came to nothing. The mast of the Mi Amigo remained standing erect from the water for many years, and it was not until the end of July 1986, that it finally collapsed. The British maritime authority Trinity House, issued a notice (weekly edition 30) stating that the mast was no longer visible, and later positioned a buoy over the wreck (weekly notice edition 36). In March 1993, the wreck of the MV Mi Amigo was reported to have broken her back. Over the years, LP records have been found washed up on the beaches of Essex on several occasions. They are believed to have come from the wreck of the MV Mi Amigo. Mother Nature achieved what the British government wasn't able to do, and close Radio Caroline.

But this wasn't the end of the story, it was just the end of chapter two of the Radio Caroline story.
