So I love all naval warfare and I was thinking... The age of sail really gets overlooked and so I come to you with this. What is your favorite tall ship?? This can be for military purposes or this can be a whaler or this can be a transport ship or heck this could be the Black Pearl from POTC. I will start with mine. Mine is the USS Bonhomme Richard she was 42 gun frigate (kind of) it was built in 1765 and it was the basically a merchant ship that was turned into a frigate of sorts. The famous John Paul Jones fought HMS Serapis in the battle and won with the loss of the Bonhomme Richard. It is my favorite because it was a ship that was never meant for war but it gave it's heart out serving the USA.
