On a different not I have this tool, had it for years and not sure what its called, maybe a depth/ angle gauge. Any ideals where I might get another one. Comes in real handy and would like to have a second one when this one is tied up. Thank you good sir's. Sorry guys already found one.  Gary

Hi Gary, unfortunately no as it was raining heavily during my visit and no flash photography was allowed on board for some reason???  I would have thought flash would not be a serious problem but there must be some good reason for it.


I managed an outside shot or two before the rain drops clouded the lens too much, and also there were some areas roped off as 'no access' when I visited including the after areas of the ship on the lower deck - a big disappointment.  One positive though, I had a great tour of the Warrior but that doesn't help you much.

Thanks Gaetan . Bruce I ordered one off of Amazon already sir. Should come in handy, and thank you.  Pat sounds like you didn't have to bad of a time.  I have heard other people say the same thing. Like you said they must have a good reason.  Well maybe next time you go you will have a better time on the Victory. Gary

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
