Now that would be a unique experience!!

When they were restoring HMS Trincomalee at Hartlepool there was an opportunity to go down into the dry dock just before they flooded it to refloat the ship. I can't believe it was 12 years ago!! Blink



It sent shivers through the spine looking up at the hull which was being supported by a few bits of wood!Scared Also a good opportunity to look at the copper plates up close - had to get that one in!


Unfortunately, I can see no way of getting down to Portsmouth for this event but would strongly recommend it to any 'down South'.

Hopefully you can post lots of pictures for the the rest of us land locked lubbers.BigGrin
