Always nice to see another square rigger, especially one of the Royal Navy's finest :-))

False keel? How does she sail? Can she tack?

Yes had to use the waders for launch and recovery ,she sails beautifully and is a cedit to her builder,  she has a ballast keel and submarine drive a real pleasure to sail, the upper hull separates from lower, regards Pete
