    According to Wikipedia," The Llandoger Trow is a historic public house in Bristol, south-west England. Dating from 1664, it is on King Street, between Welsh Back and Queen Charlotte Street, near the old city centre docks. Named by a sailor who owned the pub after Llandogo which built trows, the building was damaged in World War II, but remained in sufficiently good condition to be designated Grade II* listed building status in 1959. The pub is said to have inspired Robert Louis Stevenson to write of the Admiral Benbow Inn in Treasure Island and Daniel Defoe supposedly met Alexander Selkirk there, his inspiration for Robinson Crusoe."

    "Llandogo (Welsh: Llaneuddogwy) is a small village in Monmouthshire, south Wales, between Monmouth and Chepstow in the lower reaches of the Wye Valley AONB, two miles north of Tintern. It is set on a steep hillside overlooking the River Wye and across into the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, England."

    "A trow was a type of cargo boat found in the past on the rivers Severn and Wye in Great Britain and used to transport goods."

    Great one Dave.
    I should have remembered that. He even had a dog named Boye.

    Boy (also Boye) , was a celebrated and iconic white hunting poodle belonging to Prince Rupert of the Rhine in the 17th century. Parliamentarian propaganda alleged that the dog was "endowed" with magical powers.
    Boy accompanied his master into battle and was killed at the battle of Marston Moor on 2 July 1644.

    HMS Pandora was a 24-gun Porcupine-class sixth-rate post ship of the Royal Navy launched in May 1779. She is best known as the ship sent in 1790 to search for the Bounty mutineers. The Pandora was partially successful by capturing 14 of the mutineers, but was wrecked on the Great Barrier Reef on the return voyage in 1791. The Pandora is considered to be one of the most significant shipwrecks in the Southern Hemisphere.

    Sovereign of the Seas was a 17th-century warship of the English Navy. She was ordered as a 90-gun first-rate ship of the line of the English Royal Navy, but at launch was armed with 102 bronze guns at the insistence of the king. It was later renamed Sovereign, and then Royal Sovereign. The ship was launched on 13 October 1637 and served from 1638 until 1697, when a fire burned the ship to the waterline at Chatham.

    In 1815, the entire United States naval force consisted of 18 warships - the USS Independence, a 90-gun ship-of-the-line, 5 frigates, 2 sloops-of-war, 7 brigantines and 3 schooners. The United States needed new ships after the end of the War of 1812 against the British to help protect American sea commerce and whaling fleet efforts that followed the whale migration around the globe. The first USS Yorktown was named for the Revolutionary War's Battle of Yorktown where the British Commander Cornwallis was trapped between the French fleet and General George Washington's American Army. On October 19th, 1781, General Cornwallis and 8,000 British troops surrendered bringing about an end to the war in America. USS Yorktown was a Sloop-of-War sailing vessel, the fifth and last of the USS Dale-class. A sloop-of-war was smaller than a frigate but large enough for "blue water" operations. They were the destroyers of the day, escort vessels that were armed with various types of cannon normally mounted with fewer than 18 guns.

    The USS Yorktown was built in the Norfolk Navy Yard and launched in 1839 with her commissioning day set for November 15th, 1840. She had three masts fitted with 18 sails total, her hull painted black with a horizontal white stripe across the gun ports along both sides. On the bow was a white bowsprit with a figurehead of a double dolphin. The gun deck was one deck down from the main, or quarter deck, and housed 16 x 32-pounder cannon aligned with the gun ports, 8 facing portside and 8 facing the starboard.

    What is telling are the dates there. New ships needed after 1815, first arrives 1839. US interests became pretty much internal after the war of 1812 and the Navy was very much the poor relation. The RN actually provided cover for US maritime interests (standfast slavers) until well into the middle part of the century

    On November 21st, 1739, Admiral Vernon attacked the so-called Iron Fort at the mouth of the harbor of Portobello with six ships. The names of the six ships were: the Burford (flagship) with 70 guns, the Hampton Court (Commodore Brown's ship) with 70 guns, the Worcester with 60 guns, the Strafford with 60 guns, the Princess Louisa with 60 guns and the Norwich with 50 guns. The Sheerness with 20 guns was sent as a scout in the direction of Cartagena. After a short but spirited resistance the fort surrendered. The next morning (November 22nd, 1739), before they could continue their attack on the remaining fortifications of San Jeronimo Battery and San Jago de Gloria Castle, a boat arrived under a flag of truce. The result was that the Spanish agreed to a conditional surrender.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    This pub is in Chelmsford. An earlier sign showing a paddle steamer was replaced with one showing what looks like the Titanic.

    Certainly do Dave, but not in that guise. The last time I was there was about 45 years ago.

    Digby was the third son of Charlotte Fox and the Hon. Edward Digby (1693–1746), eldest son of William Digby, 5th Baron Digby. He entered the navy aged twelve or thirteen, and became Captain of HMS Solebay at the age of 23 in 1755, rising to Second-in-Command of the Channel Fleet in 1779. He was appointed in 1781 as Admiral of the Red and given the command of the North American Station.
