Surprise views

View up the rigging of the Surprise

View of Star of India from the deck of the Surprise at the San Diego Maritime Museum. The Surprise, formerly Rose, is a re-creation of a frigate from the age of fighting sail that was used in the movie "Master and Commander" as well as in one of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies.

Cannon pointed aft on quarterdeck of "Surprise". This ship was one of many that had been added to the San Diego Maritime Museum in the many years since we'd last visited.

Cannon. The main deck of the Surprise was interesting, with cannon resting on an elevated platform, with limited height overhead, but a center aisle with plenty of headroom for modern visitors.
