  1. Yes, the days of sailing vessels is a broad term and I must say that in my original post I hadn't considered that. I was thinking mostly of a range in the 1600's to late 1800's. However, some brought up much earlier years and after some thought conditions aboard ship through the ages would be a very interesting read. Thank you all for your thoughts.
  2. It seems as though from what I have been reading about the days of sailing vessels, the crews were not treated well or that there was a lot of tension between the officers and the men. It didn't seem like a job one would make a career out of and that there was a fair amount of desertion. Were there ever crews that totally got a long well? Did the crews take any pride in their job, being on one ship as a team, so to speak, and making a fast run?

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
