Nice ship, but I am a little disappointed that she is only about 15% original... she has been refitted so much that only the keel is original to her.
Hey Iron,

You live for 200 years..,(btw..hope ya' do but it's not likely) and see how many original parts YOU still have in YOU...

I will add that I am glad the Old girl got some sail up....
I got to tour her back in '06...glad she's still with us...
