I've boarded warrior twice now and both times it has been extreme bad weather not worth hanging around, I can remember a scaffolded structure going across amidships if that is what you mean, if so I would think it would be completed now, at the time of the review they seamed to be working on her stern section. One day I will board her in decent weather as she is well worth a look over. All the best PHILL
Thanks Phil. They were starting to replace the forrard fighting top when we were on board..well they were actually starting to clear away rigging etc..monumental job which ultimately involved about half the rigging on the ship. I believe that the fighting top weighed over a ton and a half!!. This is the last one to do, cost was absolutely fantastic. We were lucky to meet the Administrator for her when we were on board and were given chapter and verse on it all!!, and much other as well.
She is in good nick though but heaven only knows how much money has been spent on her since they decided to preserve her!!. Worth it though, she really is a very representative vessel of the Victorian Navy.
I dont know whether they were, will have to try and remember to ask the next time we talk. I thought that their prices were pretty steep from what I heard but a month ago the son of my old school chum was married at an old Priory in Essex......ye gods and little fishes..they only wanted to get married not buy the place!!
