    The first of my French third rates of renown features the 74-gun Argonaute which as I highlight is a surprising choice of French ship for the period.

    In a rather short career it seems her most significant action was to have her captain at Trafalgar end up in a rather unseemly argument with a comrade accusing him of being battle-shy.

    Very prettily done model, sir!

    Say, on the museum model, what’s with all of the sheets hanging up mid-height?  Are they washed hammocks?

    Thank you.

    I think so. It was common when the opportunity presented to air the sail cloth and hammocks to prevent damp rotting the canvass and for general hygiene for the crew and their bedding. I suppose it makes for an interesting model.

    It’s going to be daunting to everyone when if you ever show us a pic of all your fleets together. I’m pretty sure you have more than 50 ships, or are you at over a hundred now?

    Tired is enough.
