HMS Danae needs a finishing crew...
« on: December 30, 2010, 02:56:39 am »
My job as Captain is done, my voyage over.  Danae's page says she is only 94% complete, and she needs someone to finish the job.  She is a lovely fast light cruiser who in the 11 months of her voyage has been to Ireland, the Canary Islands, Madeira, Gibraltar, Hamburg, Copenhagen where she was visited by the King of Denmark twice, Danzig [Gdansk] and Lithuania.  With some rest time in her home port of Sheerness.

Give her a try!

I may flip over and give you a hand... I finished the last three pages of the HMS Attack on a breather from the Leviathan.  And I'm getting tired of being in port in Bermuda again.

Thanks, jennfurr, I also like to take breaks by finishing up the 'almost done'.  It's kinda like a vacation, and Danae is one of the RN's showpieces.

Thank you, both and all.  She's a great ship.

Wikipedia says starting in 1922, she made a trip around the world.  What would it take to get them to scan those logs? :)

She was a fun ship, though I only worked on her for a day (almost a month, ship-time)
