Three Ships

Three Ships For Sale

Corvettes, to be precise. Built in Glasgow to the specification of the Sultan of Brunei. The Sultan, however, complained that they didn’t match the specification. He was told by a court to sling his hook, but he still didn’t want his corvettes so now they are in Barrow Docks while a buyer is sought.

This could be a problem, however. The specification called for the crew facilities to be designed for small Brunei sailors. The ships may just be a little bit cramped.

  1. I like the repetition here! And such a contrast from yesterday’s photo!

  2. As they are undersized, could one perhaps be painted scarlet and sold to the artist who may or may not currently be known as Prince?
