Hello CaptainSteve,

I think that's a great idea. I've asked our Moderator Mark if he would put the rules of the game on top of the page.

Take care,

Anja

PS- As for a tip ..... Look at what Spyglass wrote in his reply. Good luck!

 

I'm still none the wiser. But I HAVE ruled out galleons, man-o-wars and ships-of-the-line ....

(Unless it's from the navy of a really, really small colonial power)

:)

Thanks for your mail Captain Steve - it helped me solve the puzzle.  The vessel type is variously called pirama, ,perama or parama

She is Archangelos  used as a research boat in excavating a seabed wreck off Italy I think - My Cyprus connections was that I saw a presentation of that wreck survey when I was at the museum of the worlds oldest wreck in Cyprus.

Congratulations Spyglass animaatjes-applaus-73650.gif

It is indeed Archangel, a Greek Perama. She was especially outfitted for underwater archeological work and was based in Greece. http://www.samlow.com/TSG.htm

It is now your turn to surprise us and send us on a ship chase.

Take care,

Anja

Okay. I'm probably wrong, but I'm going to kick discussion off with this guess.

Here goes ...

Is it HMS Dreadnought ??

And if you also require the version, then first guess is - 1906.

Second guess is - 1875.

Hello Spyglass,

I am thinking about an Ironclad warship, maybe the Lave from 1854?

Take care,

Anja

Did the english navy still have threir coat of arms on the bow by this time?

I think it's a USS ship around 1905....

and it's quite large: it has four funnels, HMS dreadnought has only two....

Hello Spyglass,

Is it the battleship cruiser USS Wasington?
It had four chimneys/funnels and a two masts.

Am I right or am I right?

Take care,

Anja

The search continues ....

Take care,

Anja

Thinking aloud: Not French, becasue the bow doesn't fit. 

Not HMS, as I can not find anything like it.

Could be spanish (used in the spanish/mexican war....)

By Jove, I think he's got it!  Found the exact picture using the ship named by Cristiano.  Well played, sir!  Now to wait for the call by Spyglass!!
