Friends of Falls of Clyde (FFOC) was encouraged by the Scottish newspaper article that someone posted on the Friends of Falls of Clyde Facebook page recently. The article stated that Falls of Clyde International (FOCI) has found a company to design a power and propulsion system for Falls of Clyde, once she is restored and repurposed according to the plan developed by FOCI head David O’Neill. What the article lacked, however, was any information about how FOCI plans to move the ship from Honolulu to Scotland, which is a critical part of the success of the plan. The FFOC board is prepared to transfer ownership of Falls of Clyde to FOCI, if that will expedite the ability of FOCI to contract with a company to make the move. Saving Falls of Clyde is the mutual goal of our two organizations.
Bruce McEwan, President
We know that there is great interest in the future of the Falls of Clyde. There is a lot going on that the Board of Directors is dealing with, so we felt that keeping stakeholders involved through a report on our website is the easiest way to reach our worldwide audience.
