I have got a detailed model of that ship, and a copy of a detailed coloured construction drawing by Randulf Hansen, the builder of the ship, on my wall, so it would be strange if I had not posted a painting of her here. But the search function seems to be restricted to forum discussions only. I have in any case not been able to open the slightest crack into the older parts of the gallery section.

And btw., do you really have to look through all of your posted pictures now before you will know if anyone has commented on any of them? So far the site seems to have taken a large step backwards as regards ease of navigation, where once one click would move you from here to there, you now have to go through several stages. Why remove the band on top of the page with direct link to the different parts of the site? Oh, well, on the up side there is the bigger pictures, I have not had to resize any posted today, and you can seemingly post as many as you want.

Yes stein, the new site is fully directed towards the 'Community' part and the Gallery is almost totally neglected. Without search function the gallery is in fact useless. See also my various comments in the forum about the site issues. In this way it is really too bad.
