I really like these first two. The third one is a large sailboat from the venetian Night Boat Parade that Chicago has each year. The city chooses a them and then all the boats will decorate accordingly.

HMS Warrior the only survivor of Queen Victoria's Black battle fleet. She was sail and steam driven and revolutionized all war ships from that day on being the first with a protective armored citidel for her guns.

I climbed all over her when I was in Portsmouth. She's a great ship. I also got to have a look at the Victory. :biggrin: Thats her masts you can see in the background above the building on the extreme right of the Warrior picture.

Well heres a yarn for allof ye. Sit back ye, or pull up a hamock, that means means you to Jack Nasty Face and listen to me . When I was but a young lad in the small town of Palmer, Massachusetts, it must have been some 25 years ago aorund the year of our Lord nineteen hindred and eighty that I first first met the HMS Surprise. Only she really isnt the HMS Surpirise. But as I said I was just a young boy of 12 when a boy of some considerable wealth stepped into my grade school classroom. He was not of lowely birth but seemed to act and dress as one that the nobility would claim for its own. He had on fine garments and spoke a finer english than that of my freinds and I. His name was Roderick Quentin Bruce, a young man of my age. It wasnt long after that, young Roderick became a freind of mine, a good freind to, I guess you could say that we were mates, because we always spent our spare time doing stuff together. We liked the same things, like railroad models, and other machines. We both had a special place for airplanes, I always wanted to fly them, and his father had flown them. He told me his dad had a good freind named Gus Grissom that had gone to the beyond trying to go to the moon. I thought he was spinning me a yarn. One day Roderick asked me to sleep over his house and go to work on his boat with him. My mum and dad gave their consent thinking that it would be a small boat, one that we would take out into the rivers or lakes to go fishing. Roderick's father was a wealthy man, of old Scotts money and was the owner of a company that built lareg complexes that people would come to in order to buy goods of all kinds. Large places as big as White Hall I have heard. I spent the night at his house and enjoyed the company of his family and their nice house. The next morning we set offf on what was a trip of three hours or so to a port in the state of Connecticut. Blow me down if there tied up to the pier wasnt a row boat but a beautifull man-o-war. A twenty eight gun frigate named the HMS Rose, whe had scuttled herself in the harbor in Rhode Island during the rebellion so her brave skipper could keep the rebellious colonist from exiting the harbor. His father Mr bruce and a couple of his more noble freinds had raised small partsof her carcas from the waters and gave her a new life. Apparently with a freind from up north they helped reconstruct the HMS Rose. Sides of oak, masts of the finest New England pines, strong and tall and straight as arrows, decks of teak. For the rest of that day I lived in a dream. At twelve years old I helped pull the block and tackle to raise the smaller cannons from the hold. I helped sweep the decks and did things that a twelve year old could do. Mainly it was general orderliness, but I didnt care. I visted the Rose one more time, standing in awe just as I had the first time. When school was done Roderick moved away and I have never seen or heard from him again, sadly I must say. When I grew to be a man and was old enough to join the Navy myself I saw the Rose again in much different circumstances. In nineteen hundred and eighty six I was sitting on the deck of the USS John F Kennedy off the coast of New York. Ships and sailors from around the world had come to pay tribute to that great Lady that had become the symbol of freedom and inclusion for the same rebellious colonist. She had been given a new set of clothes and cleaned up after a hundred years of standing as the gatekeeper of that same great counrty. When she was unveiled on July fourth of that year those same men and their ships sailed by her and beneath the deck of the Kennedy to pay tribute. As I stood there I cannot describe the emotion as I saw in that great line of ships appraoching us that same 28 gun frigate that I had stood on as a young las not many years before. She sailed by and fired that same signal cannon that I had helped to pull out of her hold as a boy. Of the twenty years I have spent in the military, few days remain embedded in my memory as that my good freinds. very few. That me hardees is my story about the HMS Rose, and its not a long yarn.

These are not exactly tallships, or military ships for that matter, but I also think these are really nice to look at. The first are three unidentified drill ships.

The second one (in color) is The Discoverer Enterprise of Transocean.
In Perspective - Facts About Discoverer Enterprise:

The 835-foot-long rig is nearly as long as three U.S. football fields.
The rig's height of 418 feet exceeds one U.S. football field.
Constructed with more than 75 million pounds of steel and other materials equal to the weight of more than 1,300 empty flatbed railcars the rig displaces over 220 million pounds, or 103,000 metric tons.
The rig is capable of generating almost 40 megawatts of power, enough electricity for 40,000 homes.
The rig can drill a well 35,000 feet below sea level, or more than 6.5 miles from the drill floor.
About 1,600 miles of cable and wiring run throughout the Discoverer Enterprise, the approximate distance from Houston, Texas, to New York City, USA.
Living quarters can accommodate up to 200 people.
Engines 52,200 horsepower.
Thrusters Six, 7,000 horsepower fully azimuthing (three forward, three aft).
