You aren't alone there, Lights.emoticon

I also would like to add the Princess Sophia that sank off the coast of British Columbia, Canada, in 1918.

Re: FAVOURITE


Hi All

As we steam down the road of steam yachts I would like to add my little love in here.

She was the SS Varuna. A really nice little well not so little steam yacht, Owned by a man called Higgins from NY. He spent his last days in Torquay Uk. The yacht unfortunately sank with as always for me a tale to tell.

She has been found not hard as it was on rocks close to the cliff and been photographed. Well what's left of the boilers have anyway. Will try to post pics of her soon

Higgins by the way was a good a real good friend of Mr Clinch Smith, first class passenger lost on board Titanic, who was a good friend of Archie. Small world isn't it.

Re: FAVOURITE


I have to say that the ship I like the most is my husbands ship, the USS Ronald Reagan, this is america's titanic so to speak and not that it is the same in anyway, its just the way we have described it sounds a little familiar, largest nuke powered carrier in the world or "the floating city" as it is sometimes called here. Mainly I like it because my husband is serving on it and helped build it( cant really call it a her i dont think)
