Not quite......in fact, not at all. Out on both counts:

1. Not U.S.S. anything at all

2. Not a frig...it or even a frigate

but good try.....

Aye

]Hi Stephen

If shes not USS and RN Could she be German. It looks like a 2nd WW warship.

I stumped with this one

These 3 RNLI lifeboats are all retired now but I believe they are on their way to a retired lifeboat meeting in Sweden at the moment.

Notice the Helming position on the older one. The Coxswain must have got WET

Re the lifeboats....

Nice. Are these not Watson class?

The issue of the helming position reminds me of the first coast guard cutter i sailed in.....small, 16 metres, open bridge and fast (for the time) at 27 knots.

Going out on rescue missions was hell as the helming position (just under the radar antenna) was more under water than above. There was also an inside helming position but I always prefered to be outside as the visibilty was pretty poor from the internal position.



Aye,

Stephen

Nah, sorry Steve, it is not the Belfast. I remember th Belfast from the time she was flagshipmFar East Station. A beautiful ship and, at that time, immaculate.

The ship in question is H.M.S. Vanguard - the last of the British battleships and, imho, the best loing battleship ever built.

Aye,

Stephen

I thought the Vanguard was easy....but no one got it. This one is not such an easy one for me.

What can I say, the ships, obviously an old passanger boat is designed for sheltered waters, which would indicate the Clyde or the Solent. The clue about the queen does not really help me much other than it indicates that it is not the Clyde as, even though she visits Scotland often, she is not so often in the Clyde area. So, I will plumb for the Isle of Wight ferry,

Aye

Stephen

Hi Stephen

You were nearly right twice but the wrong way round She is in fact the MV Balmoral

Balmoral

Balmoral was built in Southampton in 1949 and operated under the Southampton Red Funnel Fleet for 20 years. She then moved round to the Bristol Channel where she became the last member of P&A Campbell's famous White Funnel Fleet. When they ceased operation in 1980, Balmoral moved to Dundee to become a floating restaurant, and there she stood, unsuccessful & gradually falling into disrepair, until she was rescued by the friends & supporters of the Waverley.

She returned to service in 1986 and to this day operates her main summer season in the Bristol Channel, offering day excursions to popular Coastal Resorts, as well as making visits to other ports & piers throughout the UK in Spring & Autumn. Coastal cruising, once a great British tradition, remains alive & well in the care of Waverley Excursions and the operation of the Balmoral and Waverley.

In Winter 2002, Balmoral was fitted with new engines. The Project was dependent on nearly 150k being raised through the help of the Public Sector & local Councils, Supporter Societies and on-board Fund raising Activities which in turn secured a further 3/4m contribution from the Heritage Lottery Fund. This money has now been used to replace the engines but has also helped carry out additional improvements to enhance passenger comfort. For more detailed information on the Balmoral, please visit our supporters website at www.pswaverley.org.

Balmoral can comfortably accommodate up to 750 passengers and has a self-serve restaurant on-board along with two licensed bars, heated observation lounge and the souvenir shop.

Every year her and PS Waverly go round the coast doing day trips

Steve
