    One of the most beautiful examples of Argentinian naval pride. There are many things that can still be admired for my Andean neighbor, of which this is one.

    @3 Perhaps we should have a “demonstration”, and blow a hole in the bottom of its hull. Perhaps we should look at “preservation”. Probably best “preserved” at the bottom of the South Atlantic. Did the argies get British permission before “sailing” outside their territorial waters? Can't have that. The world's seas belong to the UK and the US.

    The word you are seeking is to scuttle the ship. That is the correct English language term. As a non-native of your native language, I'm glad to help you.

    “Blow a hole in the bottom of my hull” is another verb entirely. That is your personal weekend verb.

    I couldn't let this one pass.
    To “scuttle” a ship is when the crew does it to their own ship.
    Otherwise the verb is to “sink” the ship.

    Sorry, my sly humor may have been eluding.

    Conqueror said he “owns” the seas, just because he is Brit (LOL). As such, he must own anything on those seas, since he obviously believes it is his ship.

    This is perfectly true: “One of the most beautiful examples of Argentinian naval pride.” It is a beautiful ship, which everybody should have the opportunity to see.

    South american schoolships are really beautiful and classic.
    Here you can see most of them, Chilean fourmasted Esmeralda and it's smaller regional counterparts...

    After all the fuss Argentina made about “militaristic” Britain having a ship patroling the South Atlantic, it turns out they have their own naval vessell patroling in the same area.
