I this real...wow!
Lisl: It is indeed, Ray - Nelson's Flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805
Good Heavens - I never realized how big that ship is!
Lisl: It certainly is sizeable, Elizabeth
Joli voilier, j'aime sa forme originale.
Lisl: It's a wonderful survival, but has been rebuilt over the years
I bet it has a lot of pride, with that name, Lisl...and on such a beautiful day!
Lisl: It fought in one of our most important historical battles, Ginnie, in 1805

A big, proud ship reminding of Britain's glory!
Lisl: It's great to visit, Philine. This is in my parent's home-town

Despite being so close to home, I've not been it since the later 1960s! I believe it still has a serving RN Captain in charge; that must be a nice job if you get seasick.
Lisl: I didn't know that!
Wonderful boat. Wow! Thank you for sharing Lisl
Lisl: Pleased to oblige, Marie
Wouah.....impressionnant !!!
Lisl: It is very impressive

Thank heaven they saved her. Once inside you realise how cramped everything was
Lisl: Conditions at war in this must have been arrocious
Wouah... quel beau voilier !
Il représente toute une époque de la construction marine.
Vraiment superbe ce colosse !
Lisl: I am pleased you like it, Jean

Now, that is a proper war ship.
Lisl: So good that she had always been preserved

A great attraction Lisl.
Lisl: It is - something I rememeber from my earliest days
She is a magnificent craft, a shame they had a tent up on the deck for some reason. It must have been hell on board her when in battle.
Lisl: Deadly!
Black rigging is a new one for me. The contrails in the sky matching the other vertical elements is great! Good one, Lisl.
Lisl: Thank you very much, Mary
she looks mighty, Lisl. i am looking her up on wiki now.
Lisl: It's good that she has been preserved. I saw her when I was very young and she was nowhere near so smart!
A great icon
Lisl: One to be proud of

Have you seen her new colours?

She has had a new paint job which is supposed to be more authentic.
Lisl: No - I haven't - this was taken 2 years' ago

This is some serious boat, Lisl. I love the colours.
Lisl: It looked good that day in the sun. I have actually seen her in the water years ago

She was quite a vessel!
Lisl: She was indeed!
