Old Ironsides offers self guided tours ... with one sailor providing tutorials below deck.
This active duty sailor, in period costume, was very animated in sharing his knowledge of this historic ship.
He suggested MASTER AND COMMANDER as an authentic movie of the high seas ...
... rather than PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN.
I thought he would make the perfect cover model for a historical romance!
Do you have a favorite seafaring movie? My favorite is BATTLESHIP (link). Comments are open through Saturday, September 27, 10 pm in Baltimore. I'll post the winner on Sunday, September 28.
