Wow :shock:
I am utterly amazed that you even knew about her!
Unlike other places across the globe, when an old warhorse nears the end of her life we tend not to fully scrap them.
If a ship was used to defend our shores we tend to give them one last assignment . . . continue to defend our shores.
Most of our breakwaters are made up of old warships plus the occasional torpedoed merchant ship
As for the Cerberus, I live near the bay where she resides, I have walked by the area she was scuttled in many times but have never gone out there myself.
I have heard there have been numerous proposals to raise her based on the fact that she is more or less intact despite being immersed in water for almost a century.
But last I heard all of these proposals were eventually dismissed, the current plan is just to slow the rate of decay as much as possible.
Hopefully your ship will fair better at the hands of politicians then ours did.

I know about a great many of those grand old ladies. Australia- and the varrious territorial fleets- had some really cool dhips. The HMVS Albert and the other flatiron gunboats were cool little vessels. I could see a free Confederacy having many ships like that.

More now that I have time. Cerberus was one of the most inovative vessels of her day. She was a powerfully armed ship with excellent armor protection and free of all need for th wind to fight. She and the other breastwork monitors of the Victorian era are among the most important ships that no ones knows about.
