The pride of the german navy, the "Gorch Fock" has so many structural damage, that its doubtful a repair is possible. When they brought her into the yard for repairs, cost were said to be 8.5 million €. Now they say it will be at least 180 million €. More and more decission makers ask now, if it would not be cheaper so look for a replacement for her. The Gorch Fock was build by Blohm & Voss in Hamburg and has 6 sisterships which are still operational. One is the US coast guard ship "Eagle". The Eagle was taken from USA after WW II but now she is seen as best option to replace the Gorch Fock for the German Navy. It would also be great to have her back. No decission is made yet but if we could get our old ship back to replace the Gorch Fock, that would at least be a positive thing.
