Agreed - would it be possible to raise at least one of them and get into a museum where it can be preserved and displayed before they are gone forever?

Is anything being done to stop the further destruction of these beautiful historic ships? Or is this just a depressing and hopeless article?

It must be an old ship.

@Ric Mucklow do you think maybe someday someone could find a way to at least replicate these kinds of  awesome and fragile findings with technology like, 3D laser printing or something similar ? it would be so amazing for people to be able to enjoy  seeing and possibly touching things like this ship for example !  because even if we could go see shipwrecks like this, we wouldn't be able to get too close or handle any part of it  .(sorry , for the lengthy badly punctuated comment  I just wanted to put that thought out there ) thanks !
