"Vitality" carries oil products. A search on this ship has images of it refueling other ships.

Some very cool shots here.

I used to sail on the "Surprise" in the 1970's when it was named "HMS Rose" and moored in Newport RI. Great parties on board during harbor cruises, and meeting Cliff Roberts on the set for "The Man Without a Country". Its actually almost miraculous it survived long enough to be cast as "HMS Surprise".
Too bad that movie messed up the story so much.

Im building a similar subject in the shape of a wooden 1/100scale 20 gun sixth rate British frigate.

I like scale modeling square riggers (have one model of the USS Constitution I've planked and am not sure how far to take it, cause it's such a large scale that the fully rigged masts wouldn't be able to fit in a car)! Well we have a lot of different naval series to pick from: a lot paying homage to Horatio Hornblower (A&E had a good series of Hornblower starring Ioan Gruffudd). Gregory Peck was also good as Hornblower in a 50s version, as well as his Ahab in Moby Dick. Can't refute that Master and Commander is still well acted, looks and sounds great on blu-ray:-) The main seafaring movie that I thought was an affront to the written story was In the Heart of the Sea: I enjoyed the book, which was a straight account of the sinking of the Essex (which influenced the story of Moby Dick). The movie took too many liberties, and was trying to make it a summer block buster action movie. I also like submarine movies, and recently acquired the full Das Boot mini-series (which ran for 5.5 hours). I'm excited that they're making a sequel to the best submarine movie (supposed to come out this year).

It was interesting to go below deck on the Surprise. The San Diego Maritime Museum has also added a pirate theme for the kids, but it was interesting to see the difference in height and accommodation of engines and remote steering. Interesting to see how they change overall scale for filming vessels. For the 1962 Bounty, they built a full scale replica that was made wider in the beam (for being able to dolly large anamorphic ultra 70 panavision cameras). That ship would continue to be featured in other movies, until it tragically sank in 2012 during hurricane Sandy off the coast of North Carolina (with two people being lost).

HMS Victory is an interesting ship to go over, I have done the normal visit over her and also a more extensive one while in RN service, I think a new film about Nelson/Victory/Trafalg​er is well over due, if they got a big director to do it - it could be fantastic.

Wonder how many people even know who Nelson is:-( I think it's interesting that at the time of Trafalgar, she was already a relatively old ship. Then she had a similar history as USS Constitution does in America. After being the pride of the Navy, years of neglect, government threatening to scrap her, public outcry, even kids having penny campaigns to do some basic restorations....then becoming a museum ship that's still commissioned with the Navy. Beeing able to tour both the HMS Victory and USS Constitution would be a treat: to see how different naval strategy was and what it was like for enlisted men. Victory being a gun platform to be in a line of other ships of the line. Constitution being a fast frigate made of hard oak and could carry more guns then her rating. There should also be more Naval stories of some lesser battles as well: like the Barbary Wars.

I likely would have liked Master and Commander more if I had not read the books or known anything about the history of the RN in that era. I usually try to keep movies separate from books, they are their own art-forms, but in this case the liberties they took were just too much.

By refusing to allow the enemy ship and it's captain be American, they removed any hint of historic accuracy while at the same time removing any true conflict from the story. In that era the British had been kicking the French Navies arse for generations. They were the top dog. The entire conflict, the entire suspense of the book's story was based on the historically accurate aspect of the upstart out of nowhere US navy showing up on the scene with their superior Frigate build leaving the Brits' hands full from these maritime nobodies. That was the entire conflict of the book. With a French ship and captain, we should have no conflict, it would be just another case of the RN beating the pants of a superior force of poorly organized French navy.

Making them French to protect the American audience from having to come to grips with being cast on the wrong side of history not only ruined the movie in entirety, it also stole that amazing moment in history from the US,. when we got to bloody the nose of the world's greatest navy with our upstart fleet. FYI, the Chesapeake and the Constitution are discussed at length in those books. The Constitutions' capture of the HMS Java was like a heart attack to the Royal Navy. And that scene in the movie where they have a model of the "French" ship and describe how it is so much better built? they are describing the construction of the US frigates like the Chesapeake and the Constitution!!!!

No, to make their movie they felt the needed to alter the world in which the story took place from the accepted reality,. That never works for me. Like making furry teddy bears beat the most elite soldiers in the galaxy with sticks and stones,. it didn't fit in the reality that Star Wars had created in the first two movies. In this case, the film Master and Commander did not fit in the reality of History. And the 20 book Saga by Patrick O'Brien was after all, an Historic series.
