Meanwhile, here I am looking for a pair of reasonably inexpensive 18
pounders which I can mount on C.D. 110 (her registered name, though
she's better known by her previous name: Rapids Queen). I'm not terribly
worried about her trim and stability, since she's been scuttled as a
breakwater for the past few decades..
I'd really love to get these in time for the bicentennial of 1812,
though the bicentennial of Rush-Bagot also seems like an appropriate
time to install them.
Also on the to-do list for this hare-brained scheme: "figure out how to
avoid getting arrested/shot/etc. for it"
