Mariners Mirror Podcast - Ultimate Ship Models: Part 1 Royal George


Recommended Posts

The latest offering from Dr Sam Willis and the SNR is a look at Ship Models, part 1 looks at the Royal George of 1756.  There is a 6 minute video in addition to the podcast.  

Worthwhile dropping bye in my opinion at https://snr.org.uk/the-mariners-mirror-podcast/ultimate-ship-models-1-hms-royal-george/


For those who enjoyed the Wellington Trust presentation on ship models by Simon Stephens this is an ideal complimentary podcast, with Simon also contributing.

It is sooooo good to be able to see this kind of thing with today's technology.


Wasn't the upper most/center spoke handle woven with fancy rope work to indicate when the rudder was straight?  Perhaps this was a later practice, but surely something was done to aid the helmsmen, especially in the dark.
