This looks like quite a challenge.. HMS Unicorn goes under the microscope for preservation project ..... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-tayside-central-56818539 "HMS Unicorn is the oldest ship in Scotland and one of the six oldest ships in the world. The 46-gun frigate was built during peacetime and launched in 1824, spending its early life in reserve, anchored on the River Medway. HMS Unicorn was moved to Dundee in 1873 to become a training ship for the Royal Navy Reserves. It was almost scrapped in the early 1960s when Earl Grey Dock was filled in as part of preparatory work for the Tay Road Bridge. After its move to Victoria Dock, the vessel was handed over to the Unicorn Preservation Society in 1968, and opened to the public in 1975." Richard
