“weather permitting..”

To be honest I was sceptical about the viability of the proposal to raise U-778, not least because of the cost involved, but according to the report in the Belfast Telegraph Derry City Council do seem to be making some progress. It’s still a long way from being lifted off the sea-bed but the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, UTV, RTE and Channel 4 “have contacted the council to express their interest in filming the exploration and raising of the U-778 that sank after World War II.” And, again according to the report, the Council has “agreed to fund the initial dive on September 17, weather permitting.” Perhaps it just might happen after all..
