  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?
