The ship was discovered on the seabed in the Solent in 1971 and was raised from the seabed in 1982. it was a section of the hull that was raised along with many thousand artifacts, and although the hull section has been on display at the Historic dockyard it has been continually sprayed with water and wax.
The water jets were turned off last month and over the years since 1982 the money has been raised and a new museum built at the Dockyard ( Next to HMS Victory) to house the hull and 19000 artifacts which were also recovered, this forms a time capsule of the tudor Navy and today has marked the official opening of the museum and it will be open to the public from tomorrow.

|the First coffee of the day|
It was a good night last night apart from the fact that I was woken early this morning with bad pains in te area of my hip, anyway I took a couple of pain killers an that eased it enough for me to get back to sleep for another couple of hours before getting up at 7.30 to make a coffee and start my marathon day of radio and TV coverage.
