English King Charles II Receiving the Fleet After the Battle of Sole Bay 1672 di John Bentham-Dinsdale (1927-2008)

The Naval Battle of Solebay took place on 7 June 1672 and was the first naval battle of the third Anglo-Dutch war.
A fleet of 75 ships, 20,738 men and 4.484 guns of the united provinces, surprises a joint fleet Anglo-French 93 ships, 34,496 men and 6.018 Cannon anchored to Solebay (today Sun Bay ), near Southwold in Suffolk, on the east coast of England.
The battle had not a decisive outcome for the fate of the conflict and both the parties they attributed the victory

Many times I thought of how HUGE the Titanic was. She was 46,328 GT and 882 feet LOA. Truly huge for her time! Photos of her showed huge props and topsides and decks that seemed to rise to heaven.

But recently built cruise ships make it seem small in comparison. This illustration shows the Titanic in comparison to the Oasis of the Seas, which until 2016 was the largest cruise ship, with 1,187 feet LOA and 225,282 gross tonnes. The largest is now a tiny bit larger at 226,963 GT and 1,188feet LOA.
