Debbie Moorhouse Sounds interesting. Our other sailor is Monissa, who's crewed on "Lady Nelson".

Please do post the links :).

Welcome!

My collection of links tends towards maritime esp navl history reference sites (and there's too many 404s along them too *sigh*)

Some that might be of interest though:

On Deck, webzine of the Navy & Marine Living History Association

Schoonerman isn't a bad site for terminology
http://www.schoonerman.com/

Links to Australian sites
http://www.maritimeworld.net

A long list of links to individual ships

Debbie Moorhouse Of more historical interest, the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, where we find the Mary Rose, and, of course, HMS Victory.

I've been on board, but alas, only in dock.

Glenn C. | 23 comments I saw this ship, the Royal Clipper, on the Discovery Channel. Interesting enough that its a ship of sail, but the luxury, the technical details, and the dimensions are very very impressive.
