According to Wiki the Cutty Sark has undergone extensive restoration since the fire of 2007 and is now once again on display in Greenwich, England. I don't think this pisture however is of the Cutty Sark for one thing the stern is totally different and for another it has been on drydock since the 50's.

The ship I'm playing with is older than Cutty Sark, and sailed by her own power on 2012...

boom ... I was about to try the Russian old lady, Kruzenshtern but checked and saw she way way too young. Than I came across Balclutha and like an idiot didn't bother to check dates. Arggggggghhhhhh.

How about the Constitution ? Age would work and she is I believe still sailing. The pics are faint but there is a vagure resemblence. Star of India is another oldie but her paintwork does not match your pic.

I'm going Constitution. I think I can even prove it.

USS Constitution it is, amazing sailing frigate, with more than 200 years, still standing...
Here i found a link about her last sailing, celebrating 200 years of her most famous battles.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Could that be the USS Constellation in Baltimore, Maryland?

Got there first.

Sorry, Fallard are you answering my pic ? if you are that was my answer to DJL, my apologies if I've confused the issue.

I'm tied up for the next few hours. Will try and post new pic asap.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

No problem, tdw: I was answering dlj and hadn't seen your response. dlj's photos were murky enough that I thought the stern area looked more like that of Constellation, which was by the same designer, and almost a sister ship--although slightly smaller (38 guns vs. 44 for Constitution).
