Commander Len Forsyth toured the West Coast of North America and gives an entertaining account of some 18 preserved ships that he visited. Although this presentation does not have the visuals to which he refers in the course of his talk, his account is filled with interest and anecdotes, and his admiration for the USA’s enthusiasm for keeping their historic vessels in fine condition.
