    Here at the top of the Chesapeake all we have are crab shacks. I imagine you don't want those, ie; Captain So-and-so's Crabs (they do sell beer, so it's kind of a pub).

    Not liking the strange poop decks on the Hebes and following Jonas' lead, I continue to modify old hulls to be flush decked. One day these will get masts.

    Ah, what a pleasure, reading about sakers. I did so much work making an Elizabethan sailing game before discovering SoG. Sakers, culverins, demi-culverins. Such a civilized time...:happy:

    The battery continues to grow...note the cannon handling device in the background. Much time has been lost trying to find dropped 32 pounders among the dust bunnies of my workshop.
