Wow... I can't tell you how this fits so well with the ocean going books I've been reading lately..and the one I am reading now fits right into this time period..so it's like you're inviting me on board the past..excellent shot, btw..all aspects have been professionally done here, Kevin. Thanks for adding a new dimension to the book I'm engrossed in right now :)

Very cool. As a dedicated Patrick O'Brian fan I most heartily approve of this image. Does anyone have any pictures of some older tall ships?

Just as a minor nitpick, Warrior wasn't a battleship. She was a frigate.

Hello Kevin....This is indeed a lovely capture of the starboard side of HMS Warrior....The detail in the picture is very good and very colourful...I remember when we returned to portsmouth on HMS Ark Royal in 1979 a huge restoration programme was under way on this old girl and I have to say she is now looking very beautiful....When I was in the Royal Navy we were told that she was technically a frigate but rated as a battleship....well done....All the very best to you Kevin...............Mick.
