Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Reaching way back into my memories, I believe that to be Korea's famed Geobukseon or Turtle Ship as we westerners call them. I've only seen one moored so I have no idea where this one is located.

Damn ... I thought she could retain her air of mystery for a wee bit longer. Yes it is a reconstruction of a Geobukseon.

We still need to know the where so its not all over yet.

Mark ... I presume you meant Busan ? You are too far East. This place was very important in the 15th century.

Pusan and Busan are the same place. It was written Pusan before 2000, but Busan is pronounced Pusan.
