Yaaaaay...

New layout! Featuring my very own vector of HMS Surprise. Complete with pig flag and runaway pennant.

Speaking of Surprise, she is going into dry-dock soon. Meaning that afterwards she will be nice and clean. And that currently she is naked due to de-rigging in preparation for dry-dock.
Also in Maritime Museum news, the Dolphin is coming! Probably a nice change from our sinking Soviet sub. She's supposed to be here by the end of the month, but now is the end of the month so I don't know when she's actually supposed to be here. I think I might have heard some scuttlebutt about it being postponed until March, but I can't be sure.

And that's all I've got.

 Wait! I lied. I got the NCIS Soundtrack. Which is made of awesome. But I don't know if any of you are NCIS fans, so you probably don't care that much.


EDIT: I just realised I hadn't posted about the last Surprise sail. Unfortunately, I can't remember that much about it now. I do remember it was fun, though! Staying overnight on the Surprise is always fun, despite the smell. We did lose the pennant (thus the above runaway pennant comment). It had snapped from the pig stick and got caught on one of the braces. Someone went up to get and right when he reached for it the wind dislodged it and it fell into the bay. xD Captain yelled, 'Pennant overboard! Hands to launch the boat!' but we couldn't find it. Hopefully we'll get a new one.
