  1. Victorian era (steam) ships how fast?

    That would be great! Beforehand thanks.
  2. I am wondering how long it would take a Victorian era ship to go from Honduras (Caribbean) to England (europe). Would it go directly? Or does is still needs to take the ocean currents and winds in account? If I remember right a 18th century sailing ship would go from England to the Caribbean by first sailing south to the west coast of Afrika and then cross the ocean using the currents and the winds. And it would go back, by sailing up to halfway north America and then cross the ocean to Europe. Does the victorian (steam) ships still need to do the same to get to Europe? And how long would it take to go to Europe? (and back)
  3. What's in a Name?

    I have a small book with the name: "Piraten encyclopedie" (pirates encyclopedia), it's dutch and it contains a long list of 1000 Dutch (pirate like) people with their names and known surnames and their history (if that exists). the ISBN is 90-5911-273-3. So if your into dutch pirates and your able to read a little dutch, I guess it would be a nice addition to your bookshelf..
  4. What are you reading right now ?

    Incidents of travel in Yucatan. Vols. I & II. By John Lloyd Stephens. ...an interesting book with John Lloyd Stephens explorations of ancient Mayan city's and his contacts with the Spanish, Mayan and mixed people that lived in Yucatan in the year 1841...
  5. Stupid question - shoes and boots

    Who said I was going to use these for a pyrate impression??? Altough this forum might be called Pyracy.com there more kinds of reenactors roaming these posts, then just seafearing lad's and girls. For all other discussions about boots and pyrates, I would suggest reading this thread from the start and reading the other nummereus discussions on the subject in this forum. For me my persona is a 1710 Spanish officer in the colonial world (most likely with a fear for water) so my thought is that boots would be very wel possible... Thank you for your kind and considered words. In this forum called Pyracy.com there is a subforum called Captain Twill, which is described as being for "Academic talk, research, share, discuss, debate & argue maritime history." This thread is in that subforum. Yes, I have read this thread from the start. It had been dead for a year and a half before you revived it with your first post to it. You did not include any information in that post about your persona or intended use. I made a comment/query about the boots. Who said I was talking about your (hitherto unkown) persona and intent? In fact, since I made no effort to address your questions at all, who said my query was in any way directed towards you? In other words: Is it really necessary to have a hairtrigger on the insults? For some reaon I did indeed felt adressed. If this and my response was out of place, then I apologize...

  7. Stupid question - shoes and boots

    I realy like the sturdy look of the upper pare and the right one on the lower picture. Does anyone have a idea or drawing of the layout of the extra layers of leather?

    The classical chicken or egg dilemma. Where do I get a gun to rob a bank with, so I can buy myself a gun?
