    IMHO one of the best threads here Clancy.

    I'm so happy you took the time and energy to find this outstanding collection and posted for all of us to enjoy. Too bad some from the bilge don't rise above to enjoy them.

    I too like this one. The artist has capatured a cold looking sea.

    Clancy,

    That was some collection of Marine Art... felt like I have been to a museum or gallery! Looked for my favorite "Rising Wind" by Montague Dawson, but these will have to suffice

    Thank You, from a fellow art lover and sometimes Bilge Lurker!

    Since this is where we are at today in our travels, I'll toss this one in by Leon Tantillo, 'Morning Mist on the Hudson'

    Clancy,

    Earlier in the thread you had a question about the Constitution backwinding the main topsail in her battle with the Java.

    She is about to pass in front of the Java, I suspect the captain is slowing her so that he has more time to unload a broadside down the length of the other ship. This will cause carnage on the deck, and if they can put some shots through the Java's bow it will also wreck the forward parts of her gun deck.

    Also (and I am not sure on this) he may be doing some steering with the sails. He would not want Java to cut cross his stern, then Java could rake him. So he might be preparing to bear off to starboard after unloading his port broadside. That would pass his stern in front of Java's bow, which is pretty safe to do, and open up is starboard broadside which can fire while the port side guns are reloading.

    It would not suprise me if this painting is based partly on the logs of the battle. Its been a long time since I last read about the Constitution in action, but if that is true and my reply is even half correct you can begin to see why Java surrenderd.
