Thickness

The frame is made of one wood, commonly a tough, dense wood which is resistant to rot. Some use cheaper woods, oversized to obtain the same stiffness (and similar weight) to the more common woods. The outer planking is a wood type commonly chosen for toughness and resistance to rot. Can be different below and above the waterline. Inner planking varies more. It can have differences below and 'between and above' the ports on each gun deck, and in the Orlop and Hold. Masts, spars and yards

Narrow Escape

After a decent day's PvPing up around Danish/Swedish waters (three engagements, three kills), a small Swedish squadron decided to come out and do something about the Conny in their waters.  Comprised of a Buc, and two Frigates, the Swedes refused to get careless, and as such, I was not able to obtain an advantage. For an hour-and-a-half, we played the Chain Game; me running downwind, and them unable get a good shot at me. Four minutes from the end of the battle timer, the two well-handled f

A Bit Rusty...

Having been absent from the game for a bit over a month, some newly acquired free time (and a newly-acquired ship) has given me the opportunity to explore the North-Eastern stretches of the map. Apparently, the French/Swedish/Danish alliance is not supportive of exploration, and as such I was also presented with the now rare chance to PvP!  I was attacked twice (in my Conny) by two separate Surprises... Thanks to [ER]Armand De La Croix and [HRE]Quios for the battles!   New ship's

He had lost the cunning of Diego Simeone last night.   Regional defense art "strangled" tiki-taka   Like the previous game, Bayern Munich move more, control the ball more, launching more than rivals pass. Only thing, the ball just vicious in the midfield without financial naof closely approach the Atletico goal cumbersome due to the combination of the very abundant.   The difference in the scope of acti
