As I had mentioned early-on in another thread, the National Trust will not put the DQ in the top 11 endangered landmarks because she has a relatively new steel hull and is completely operational.

The DQ is threatened in a way that is dear to us, and that is her legal ability to take overnight passengers. The threat is due to political "BS", and not due to her present state of repair. The vessel itself is in good condition, and the political stuff does not make the maintenance of the vessel threatened enough, at present, to put on the list.

But if the exemption fails and she is laid-up for a while, then I'm sure the DQ would easily go to the top of all threatened landmark lists!
