Thank you, Bruno! Any excuse to see a type 47 destroyer and a Narval class sub!. Nantes looks pretty close to where I want to go when I go to France. There is a town in Normandie called le Renouard(where my family is from!). All the history all over the country(and all of europe in general, have you seen the pics of the cruiser Mikhail Kutuzov in russia?) is amazing. I'm sure i'll need all the info i can get! Again, thanks!

You are right, nowadays preserving old ships is not a high priority!
The Landévennec site is close to Brest, it is worth having a look at if you are nearby!
If you want to visit a destroyer, built in the fifties, you can come to Nantes and to the "Maille Breze", open every day from 2pm, you can visit inside (wheelhouse, boiler room, turbines...):
Also in the area, in St Nazaire, a submarine built right after WWII, the "Espadon" can be visited in a part of the old submarine base built by the Germans.
Feel free to ask me for information!

It's terrible to see the Colbert like this! I was really looking foreward to seeing her when I go to France. The Europeans are having quite a bit of difficulty maintaining maritime monuments. Very sad. Great pic, though!
