Correct.
Where the real Victory was built. It was made for a film company in the 1930s for a film about Lord Nelson, played by Laurence Olivier. It cost $5000 then! It was fully functional and all guns could fire for the battle scenes. I want it!!

As you said a doddle :}

And now for something different, a bit of a blast from the past perhaps 1986 in fact.....I bet that's a dead give away for some people.

When it first came here, we found the name almost unpronounceable - so it was called 'Darn my Jersey'! O0
I will give another a chance at guessing.

I took this picture with a zoom lenz, of a small boat just off the West coast of Florida.
There is a prize for the winner :-)
Just for fun.
