Post HMS Victory
While looking at Amazon.co.uk, I saw that there is a CD-ROM for sale entitled Explore HMS Victory. It sounds like a must have!

Link to Amazon.co.uk Page

Proceeds from sales go to the "Save the Victory" fund.

Lord Nelson's flagship HMS Victory could be put in hands of private company

This is very disturbing:

HMS Victory rotting and being pulled apart under its own weight

It's painful to read. Leaks and water damage...parts of the deck may be closed off due to possible danger from bits of falling rigging...ugh. The story is too familiar.

...relevant to Susan's post, I spotted this article late last evening in the hard copy of the Daily Mail.

Been busy, so playing catch-up reading posts!

The reporter's suit and shoes...not the most practical clothing to be climbing about! Especially with the harness, it must have been really uncomfortable for him.

As long as the functions are dignified, the income they bring in to help with maintenance is good.

I was out all day yesterday so almost missed the following: "Nelson's HMS Victory gets £50m facelift using a technique used by sailors 300 years ago after modern methods fail"

Heh. Caulked a few small seams myself. Tedious, but it works. So much for modern technology.
