Just one more question to our black-powder aficionados:

If I see the nicely white washed inner walls of the decks and I think about "exercising the great guns" with live ammunition?


Does the whole area of the walls needed to be washed down or even had to be repainted after each of these exercises because of all the black (?) smoke traces of the gunpowder?


Also the sponge: Nicely white on the museum ships, but dirty grey in real life? Or even dark anthracite?

Questions over questions ...

Cheers, Daniel

PS: I even do not dare asking for the walls condition after a long battle ...
