Re: Warships?

Alas, both Victory and Warrior share the same problems.

Victories guns are fiberglass replicas as the weight of a hundred off 2 to 3 ton guns would pull her apart, her sails are in the national maritime museum and the only plane onboard is in the carpenters stores, which is probably rusted solid.

Warrior's guns are also fiberglass replicas, she doesn't have a set of sails and her steam engines are mostly comprised of fiberglass. HMS Trincomalee might be a better bet if your after recommissioning a sailing warship. ;)
