Is this the monitor HMS M33, which when I last I saw her in Sept 01 was being restored next to HMS Victory? Is she open to the public yet?

Thank you Peter, It would seem like this machines got it in for me, I much prefer training dogs, at least I know when their putting one over on me!!!!

Yes Adrian, thats the one M33, Had that alongside many a time when it was a floating crane, just hope they finish it in time for this years celebrations.
