Suggestions for a first time ship,crew and captain
Hello! I, And my friends, have over quite a period of time gained an increasing desire to construct and sail a good sized ship.
I was wondering, for a crew of 15(including my self)
What type of ship we should make?
One of my companions believe a Schooner would be the best option while I, myself, believe a sloop or caravel would be enough for us. (be it noted we are just getting out of high school)
Also if you have any advice as to what supplies to bring and the best option as to storing our food and water.(we know we will need quite a bit).
Any advice you have to offer would be greatly appreciated as far as what ship to build, what food to stock pile, and if any documentation would be needed in case of accident.
Also any advice for a new captain as to how to entertain a crew, and keep them in happy company.
My first name is : Eli
I look forward to your response(hoping it isn't a telling off)
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
