I've noticed that the captain of the ship that Alvarez Kelly (William Holden) made travel arrangements with spoke with a Scottish accent. Could he have been modeled after this man? Joannes Wyllie is it?

I'd never heard of Joannes Wyllie before. But definitely have heard of the Advance.
Did a little(very little) research on him and can't help notice that the Ad-vance is spelled with a hyphen in it. Was it really spelled that way or is someone just trying to be "cute"?

Here's a couple new model plans for blockade runners for those in interested in modeling some. These are plans and info only which would have to be scratch built and not for the novice modeler. Site has some great historical info on many different ships.

Mrs V,

A live book talk? Sounds like something I could do. We would just need to plan a right time as i am five hours ahead of EST here in Scotland! Thanks for the suggestion. I assume i would contact the board admin.

Cheers

John
