Recommended Posts

I guess the subject says it all, but to give some context, I'm working on an early 18th century 6th rate (or post ship) - the Blandford of 1719/1720. Thanks in advance for your answers!

Thanks to you both for posting and answering.  I just came across this issue myself and thought it was a bit strange.  Now I understand.
