    So good to see those two beautiful ladies at sea. I am in the area next month and I will try and arrange a bit of spare time to go and have a look at them. I will take my camera and if the photos look good I will post a few.

    The curators should organise trips round the Solent to raise funds. I imagine the queue would stretch around the Historic Dockyards. I know I would happily pay for a chance to get behind the helm and crawl round the engine room whilst underway.
