I'm currently looking for material (and inspiration if anyone has any photos of cool examples) for a new helms seat. A source has turned up in my local area that was part of a US warship that fought in WWII, being sunk and re-floated to serve with honor.
Is that weird? Part of me says that it would be awesome to have such history
on the boat, but the fact that is was on a boat that sunk seems a little odd.
Perhaps theres a re-appropriation ceremony to get things back on track?
