    Gardner,Derek-HighSeas - oil on canvas
    'This is the celebrated tea-clipper Leander, built on the Clyde and launched in 1867. The china tea trade under sail lasted only a quarter of a century, roughly from 1850 to 1875, yet the names of many of the ships are still remembered today. The most famous of them is undoubtedly the Cutty Sark, preserved in dry dock at Greenwich, the only survivor of the many ships that year by year, raced home to London, their holds packed tight with chests of tea.'

    Clancy, She is "Hove To" A kind of way of stopping the ship from serious fwd. motion. Ships would do this to take on a pilot etc , a whaler to cut in a whale. Not sure why a war ship would do this in a battle. It seems to me that would make em a sitting duck. But perhaps someone else can answer that one.

    Tom about art or yarns?

    Groves,John-Hoisting The Upper T'Gallant - pastel
    Hoisting The Upper T'Gallant, 1900s
    'Much of the very heavy work of 'pulley-haul' aboard a ship of this period might be alleviated by taking a halyard, sheet, or brace to one of the capstans fitted on the main deck.'



    Groves,John-Gale Coming On - pastel
    'In an advancing gale a merchant ship of the late 18th century shortens her sail. The sails were shortened with the aid of reef-points: lengths of rope spliced each side of the sail through stitched holes in reinforced bands of two or three strips across the sail, to enable the sail to be rolled or folded and made fast to the yard so as to expose a smaller area to the wind.'




    Groves,John-South West Coast - pastel
    'After several weeks of overcast and stormy weather, making for the English Channel, unable to fix her position and relying on deadreckoning, pushed sideways by currents or general scend of the sea, this ship came off course and, like so many others, one dark and stormy night found herself embayed on the coast of Cornwall, with every possibility of no
    survivors among the crew.' 'Quite a number of people are uncomfortable with this picture. I guess it is because it shows a side of the sea they do not wishto be reminded of.'

    Definitions from the web:

    scend
    1. Rise or heave upward under the influence of a natural force, as on a wave.
    2. The distance that the trough of a wave is below the average water level. With large waves in shallow water the scend is important to help determine whether a boat will run aground.

    embayed
    1. (geography) Formed into a bay.
    2. (navigation) Pertaining to a vessel in a bay unable to put to sea or to put to sea safely because of wind, current, or sea.

    Groves,John-Scarborough-The Herring Season - pastel
    'The great fleet of herring drifters has arrived with their catch at Scarborough. The quaysides bustle with activity: on the boats the baskets are filled from the holds then hauled up on to the quay, where the men empty their contents into large rectangular wooden tubs or troughs set up on the quays. Women would gut and salt down the fish and pack them
    into barrels. Working on piece rates in teams of three in all weathers, they could deal with about 3,000 fish in an hour.'







    Groves,John-A Good Catch - pastel
    'Some fish was sold locally by retailers who worked direct from the foreshore where the fish was landed. This St. Ives woman with her family is a fish "jouster" or seller...'

    Groves,John-No Wind - pastel rough
    'Heavy rain knocking the breath out of the wind, a heavy swell, the deck canting, the boom swinging to and fro over one's head, the gear banging and clattering, and the sound of swearing from the galley.'



    The Sheba Queen
    John Rackham, known as Calico Jack for his costumes of colourful cotton, together with the female pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read, who sailed with him in the 40-gun Sheba Queen, came up against two Spanish men-of-war sent to capture and sink them because of their persistent attacks on Spanish merchant shipping. The action was close and destructive, the Spanish receiving the worst of it. During the action Bonny, being of a fierce and courageuos nature, leapt into the main shrouds, exposing herself to the fire from the enemy ships, to cheer on the upper deck gun crews.

    I reckon that the English flag and pennant would have been long gone from the ship by then. Nice painting though.

    I am down with the flue sitting here being bored and tired, and up comes theese beautiful pictures. THANKS A LOT.


    A question for those of you who know a little about the handling of squareriggers:
    Do some of the paintings show the ships with too much sail set for the conditions? In particular picture number 2 of the merchantman in Salem harbour?

    'HMS Bellona (left) was one of the first of the new British standard 74-gun ships - a long-lived ship, completed in 1760, still active in 1813. On 15 August 1761 she ran into the powerful French Courageux 74 off the coast of Portugal. A famous, hard-fought action ensued, in which Courageux was finally captured. She proved to be an excellent ship and influenced British battleship design for decades.'

    Hunt,Geoff-HMS-.Inconstant & l'Unite - oil on panel

    'On 20 April 1796 the frigate Inconstant, Captain Fremantle, reconnoitred what is now the Bay of Tunis. There she found a French warship lying at anchor and, in circumstances which the Inconstant's log-books do not make clear, captured her without a shot being fired. She proved to be l'Unité of 34 guns, a size of vessel that was just dropping out of the category of frigate - in the French Navy such ships were now called corvettes. The interesting thing about this corvette is that she was bought into the Royal Navy, renamed HMS Surprise, and had a busy and
    distinguished career (she was Captain Hamilton's command in the recapture of the Hermione), before going on to have an even busier
    and far more celebrated career in fiction as Captain Aubrey's ship, in so many of Patrick O'Brien's novels. Here we see the two ships on the morning following the capture.Inconstant is making sail to investigate a strange vessel to the northward, but all turns out well; she proves to be the British frigate La Sybille,...L'Unité even as built had rather an English look about her and there is not much to mark her as a French-built ship to outward appearance, though the spidery object dangling from the driver boom is a characteristically French lifebuoy.'

    Once again the ship is HMS Surprise, this time securely moored, a marine sentry stationed over the bowsprit ready to shoot any potential deserter trying to swim away from the ship...In the distance a Genoese barque... is being towed through the flat calm by her longboat.'

    Thanks again Clancy for posting that outstanding collection of tall ships. I had a hard time picking out my favorite but settled on one.



    "Wager in the Great Southern Ocean 1741." It touched something in me. The look of hope at dawn after what probably was a stormy night . Her Top gallants masts were sent down and the glint of sun light on the breaking wave just abeam of her bower anchor stock suggested that emotion for me.

    Maybe a good painting to be absorbed in if in one's own crisis ?

    Now all the rest were close seconds.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.
