Thanks for the article, Gavin. I didn't know any of those things about the "Maury," except that she had been scrapped. I didn't even know that Isambard Kingdom Brunel's Great Britain was in Bristol. Have you heard of his other ship, the Great Western? (not to be confused with Great Eastern). I thought I heard that Great Western was beached, and eventually destroyed, out here on the California coast. True or false?
