The Traverse Board

2 posts in this topic

i have made a traverse board and explained it use and also researched the different boards displayed on the internet. about a year ago i had someone tell me that on the speed grid (ship knots across the top and half hours down the side) there should be an extra set of speed holes to the left on each knot grid and it would be pegged if the ship was becalmed. the "Mariners Museum" it Newport va. has a traverse board similar but with only one extra speed holes located to the far left on the first grid. so it look like this: 0 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5

1 5

2 6

3 7

4 8 the time 1-8 bells, the knots 1-5 with the 0 only in the one far left grid, the Mariners Mm traverse does not have a zero, it is left blank. comments thoughts???? .
