    I may have posted this before and forgotten about it...
    Video shows a fly through of the shipping gallery at the science museum, London, with commentary; made shortly before the gallery was closed and turned into something less interesting.
    Things I remember:
    Models in two sizes of Swan and Raven as used by Willian Froude.
    Dioramas of boating scenes from the past with locally built small boats.
    Hundreds of ship and engine models - and pressing the button to make the engine go round!
    Models of lifting propeller methods from the days when props needed maintenance on a voyage.
    A Victorian pedal catamaran with a prop like a paint mixer(!) and hulls like a modern beach cat.
