    Just read the bit about Tromp that you posted the address for Morten. Although I had the bones of the story from History lessons many years ago, that fills in a lot more details.
    Thanks.

    Also just spotted your question to Sven about the ship mats in his album Morten.
    They are the official Ares mats for sails.

    Although the darker version has been posted earlier; the Pale Ale version is one of my go to beers.

    That's one I must try to contrast with the Dark Ale David.

    I came across the picture a while back and it seemed appropriate for a nautical avatar.

    No pictures from that time have survived thank goodness.

    Since you like strong beer, Rob, I thought that you might like to see this. It does contain two beers with nautical references.

    Yes Dave I'm much the same, but the idea of the thread was to see how many seafaring beers we could spot, not to define their palateability.
    So you are fine with what you are doing. I never envisaged that we would find more than maybe a dozen or so when i started, so this has come as a bit of a revelation. Do you think we can break the 400 mark?

    I don't get the nautical connection.

    I'm rather thinking of Sharpe and the 95th rifles.

    Sorry Jonas it's the Wolf rock.

    Wolf Rock Lighthouse is on the Wolf Rock, Cornwall, a single rock located 18 nautical miles (33 km; 21 mi) east of St Mary's, Isles of Scilly and 8 nautical miles (15 km; 9.2 mi) southwest of Land's End, in Cornwall. The fissures in the rock produce a howling sound in gales, hence the name.

    Name:  360px-Cornwall_UK_location_map_svg.png
Views: 234
Size:  44.2 KB



    The lighthouse is 41 metres (135 ft) in height and is constructed from Cornish granite prepared at Penzance, on the mainland of Cornwall. It took eight years, from 1861 to 1869, to build due to the treacherous weather conditions that can occur between Cornwall and Scilly. The light can be seen from Land's End by day and night, and is almost exactly halfway between the Lizard and the Isles of Scilly. It has a range of 23 nautical miles (43 km; 26 mi) and was automated in 1988.

    The Gabrielle of Milford Haven was wrecked on the Wolf Rock in 1394. Her cargo, worth £1000, was washed ashore in Cornwall and collected as wreck.

    In 1791 Lt Henry Smith obtained permission from Trinity House to build a navigational mark on the rock. He built a 6.1 m (20 ft) high wrought iron daymark, 10 cm (4 in) in diameter and supported by six stays and a metal effigy of a wolf was placed on top.

    Name:  Wolf_Rock_Beacon.jpg
Views: 289
Size:  26.0 KB
    By 1795 the daymark was washed away. In the late 1830s John Thurburn built a beacon, which was completed by 1840, and by November of that year was also washed away. Trinity House builder James Walker constructed a 4.3 m (14 ft) high cone-shaped beacon, which took five years to build. Made of iron plates and filled with concrete rubble, it can still be seen next to the lighthouse. In July 1861, engineer James Douglass surveyed the rock and Walker started to build the lighthouse the following March, based on Smeaton's third Eddystone Lighthouse. Completed on 19 July 1869, the light first shone in January 1870 and in 1879 it was reported that the light flashed red and white. In 1972 it became the first lighthouse in the world to be fitted with a helipad and the lighthouse became automated in July 1988.

    HMS Nottingham.

    On 7 July 2002, Nottingham ran aground on the submerged but well-charted
    Wolf Rock near Lord Howe Island, 370 miles (600 km) off the coast of Australia. A 160 feet (49 m) hole was torn down the side of the vessel from bow to bridge, flooding five of her compartments and nearly causing her to sink.

    Whilst I quite like Lava Bread Dave, I will reserve judgement on these ales until I have tried one.
    May be O.K. for an old salt, but not a refined palate?
    Bligh.

    I don't know about the Admiral Dave, but it's certainly more to mine, and by Jove look the Sun is over the yardarm already.
    Bligh.
