Re: From my archive

Havfruen [The Mermaid]. Operated as a factory ship off Patagonia. She
was under tow as a supply ship through the ice near the South Sandwich
Islands when sheet ice tore a hole in her side and she sank with no loss
of life.
The ship on the Left is the Tulla, a combined Factory ship and Catcher, which I think was towing her at the time.
W/C A3 another illustration for the book

Licking Wounds
Keeping in the same time frame of the War of 1812, here is a minor war vessel with sheer legs rigged, replacing her main mast. Lots of the books I have for reference have old line engravings of this sort of thing and I've tried to keep the flavour.
Watercolour. 15 x 10 inches

Two Canadians Two (how to cover up a mistake)
Some may have noticed in the original Two Canadians, I had the 'Ocean Viscount' which was actually built on the West Coast of America.
So here is a real Canadian built ship 'Fort Babine'
