    TBF it is not just Ares being overly generous. Most age of sail rules go for the playability angle. Using Dobbs' templates gives you an appreciation for the difficulty of a line having to work to...

    I visited the Cutty Sark in 2013 and she was very impressive. They built a glass surround so to enter the museum part you actually go down around the outside of the hull. I think the HMS Victory is...
