The HMS Rose was purpose built for the Seven Years War. In the 1770's she saw action on a number of occasions in the American War of Independence. A replica of the Rose was built in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in the 1970's which later would play the part of the HMS Surprise in the movie "Master and Commander". Renamed Surprise, the ship now berths at the Maritime Museum of San Diego and is open for tours daily.
