  3. Current Doglock Reproductions

    Second on the Loyalist Arms and Repair doglock. I've two of them, and they've been brick solid, and the service from the folks at Loyalist is amazing. I'd love to head up the Maritimes and meet the lads. M

  12. small ships

    Okay, okay, so we all know that the mammoth ships of the line depicted as "pirate" vessels in the movies are beyond silly. I am, however, having trouble finding decent illustrations of smaller, 30-60' vessels from the Elizabethan period through the early 1700s. Most of the drawings are of larger ships, or hideously stylized dutch and flemish paintings. Anybody got some good links? Mungo gots an alterior motive. in building one. M
  13. Tennez anyone

    So here's an odd one fer ya lads. Deck Tennis. I knows it was played aboard cruise ships in the 30's, but does it stretch back afore that? The two elements involved in it, quoits and tennis, are ancient, and its at natural for an impromptu shipboard game. Anyone got any attestations?
