HMS MARY ROSE model ship

The HMS Mary Rose was one of the two large ships that were constructed as part of a build-up of the English naval force in the years between 1510 and 1515 against the threat of the French Navy.

Mary Rose was a radical nautical design.  She was carvel rather than clinker built!  As carvel hull allowed watertight gun-ports, she was equipped with heavy guns mounted near the waterline.  

Being able to fire a full broadside of cannons, HMS Mary Rose was the pride of the English fleet.  38.5 meters long, she had a crew of 200 sailors, 185 soldiers, and 30 gunners.

HMS Mary Rose was a huge success.  One of her many trophies happened on August 10th, 1512 when she attacked the French flagship and forced her out of the battle with 300 dead and injured.   Prior to the campaign of 1513, the King reviewed the fleet at Greenwich and Mary Rose outsailed all other ships in a race.   Writing to the King afterwards, the captain described her as... "Your good ship, the flower, I trow, of all ships that ever sailed"...

In October 1525, the Mary Rose was in Deptford, requiring caulking "from the keel up, both inside and out". When the restoration completed in 1526 the ship was recorded as being, "good for the wars or else for the King's pleasure."  She was the King's favorite until sank.

HMS Mary Rose is now on display in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard along with an extensive collection of well preserved artifacts.
