I'm somewhat very surprised not to a single comment on this Great T,V Show from the 90's.

I know some of you think it was Predictable, and through four not worth a watch, However, I disagree, This was a great work of Art, They actually used a Replica of a ship that once sailed the channel herself.

About the Ship TRUK
One of the ships used for the film was "The Grand Turk" which is a working replica of a 1790s man-o-war that makes yearly trips throughout Europe and winters in the city of Whitby, England. It was specially built for 'Hornblower', and painted black and buff on one side, and black and red on the other, so that it could double as a British or French ship, depending on the angle it was filmed from.


A Most enjoyable trip down Memorie lane, Great Show, and Thank You to all that Entertained us.

Thank You, I loved the Show and Still do till this day.
