They look very impressive Brian. Clearly a lot of work has gone into them.
Let's hope they fight as well as they look when they see action. :-)

Thanks guys. As I said elsewhere, I looked at those photos and saw bent masts, saggy rigging and all the other signs that indicate years of hard service. Some of them have 20+ years of service on them. As for fighting as well as they look... well, let's just say they've seen their share of victories AND defeats. :cry: Let me hasten to say though that I wasn't commanding them every time they took a beating! :D
