What craftmanship on these boats. Great photos. Dianne

It just makes me want to man the scuppers and beam to port. Or dance on a dead man's chest of drawers or something. Great detail shot, Bits!

This is a very fancy ship. It even comes equipped with it's own black hole. Is that a sort of matter/anti-matter device for when there is no wind blowing?

Thanks Dianne, n1w, and steve ! I've got to say, it's the most gorgeous ship I've ever seen. The detailing is amazing and authentic, and it's maintained in magnificent ....ship shape! Definitely worth a lot more than a Canadian Dime !!!

and n1w, I just posted a close-up of the anti-matter device, as well as the exit from the resultant worm-hole ;)

OK, I better go finish up the yard work so I can try to get into town to catch this at sunset....

The one in front looks pretty cool too, what's her name?

Hi Cal - another Canadian! It's the Picton Castle. Seeing the photos of the ships under sail like on that web link make it clear what we've missed by having the city forbid the Parade of Sail (due to security cost issues.) And there are even strict time lag rules about their arriving and departing so that no unofficial parade of sail can happen.

Nice, how did you get her all to yourself?

n1w, you get beamed aboard.

As soon as I hit send on that one, I knew that there would be repercussions, Guy. Just call me a beamish boy.
