Cheerful's ready amunnition on deck arangement?

Recommended Posts

Ahoy Mates


Getting near the point where I need to know how the cannon balls and powder was set up on the deck of the Cheerful  of this date 1806   with caronnades?


Just about finished with all the guns now. Ready to start rigging them.

My shipyard supervisor is not feeling chipper today since yesterday he had dental work-cleaning and extractions . Pickels has 12 less teeth today. The cat tooth fairy will visit him with fresh cat nip when he feels better and can enjoy it. He's doing as well as can be expected,today he's sleeping under my feet while I am writing this.

Well back to the Cheerful's gun tackle and breaching lines.
