Grand Turk, man o’ war 1700s replica, sailing ship.
Panasonic, Lumix DMC TZ3.
Featured in Armed Forces Living History Group, 2 February 2013
Featured in the TV series Hornblower.
Build in Turkey in 1997 and is a replica of an 18th century full rigged man o’ war.
CURRENT LOCATION:- The frigate was purchased by Bob Escoffier of the Etoile Marine Croisieres, which already operates a number of traditional sailing ships: Étoile de France, Étoile Molène, Étoile Polaire, Naire Maove et’ and la goélette-aviso de Brest La Recouvrance (in partnership with its owner, the SOPAB). The final sale price was not disclosed. After being moored in Whitby for over a decade, the Grand Turk sailed out of her home harbour for last time at 4:00am 16th March 2010 to her current location in France.

My main interest is painting Aviation Art.
I get a lot of enjoyment researching the historical background behind the picture I’ve been commissioned to paint.
I work in acrylic on my big paintings on canvas board but use water colors, pastels, soft and oil, for smaller pieces.
I also enjoy doing pet portraits in soft pastels on tinted paper, from photographs. Ideal presents for Xmas and birthdays.
