I know its 1560, but I want to know the exact date. Trying to start a Journal, a Ships log, for Will Harkness.

I'm thinking May 16th? Top of my head lol. Or what date was this set exactly?

The top speed of a sailing vessel of that time, under ideal circumstances, was approximately 10 to 14 mph. A nautical distance of 430 miles<ish>. So again, under ideal circumstances, the trip would take about 35 1/2 hours.

If you get a southerly as the English channel often does, you could cut 2 hours of that. Obviously Symon did his 'research'  :sam10

Thanks Symon  :yes: Sorry it took me a bit to respond.  :fp

Also, i was wondering. Is there like a crew manifest of a 1560s ship? I know there's a first mate, obviously. I was thinking about another NPC. Just wanted to be sure I got at least some of the crew covered. And maybe get some players on my ship. It'd be pretty lonely if I have to play with myself on a pirate ship  :lol  :fp

What kind of crew can i have? Maybe there's a site I can look at?

coxswain (he's the guy that steers most of the time) oh and in 1560, they didn't have so much as a wheel, more a big wooden arm that went out back to the rudder.

Gunners mate in charge of guns

Midshipman, probably two

deck crew, about 10 on a ship that size, or more. I should google it.....

oh and I know this is not for here, but you're missing a few posts elsewhere  :sam10

Already done, more or less. He can be a Frenchman and I mean he. There were no women crews in this age.

Yes, correct, before the formation of the Brotherhood in the mid 17th century, there were absolutely no women aboard except of those carried as passengers.

As for the ship: Captain, First Mate, Skeeper/Navigator,  Quartermaster, Bosun, Gun Captains, Doctor, Carpenter, Treasurer.

Thanks!  :yes:

I just made my third npc. Kaz  :lol  :fp Nickname for Cassius. He's Italian I guess lol. He belonged to some Roman heritage or something.

First Mate. I thought that was the "XO" of the ship or is that Quartermaster? Cause i looked at the other link Mel put up and it said Quartermaster below the Captain. When i made my First Mate, I made Patrick Henry the first officer or XO. Is that not right? Or is he just first mate and the quartermaster is the XO?

First Mate is the XO of the ship - they are expected to know the navigation and naval tactics and are supposed to take command of the prize/own ship if captain is uncapable of.

Quartermaster is basically commander of the combat detail. He's the vanguard, fights on the quarterdeck - hence the position's name - and is the first in, last out of the skirmish, basically being captain's XO on the combat stuff.

If the officers are expected to follow command of the First Mate and Second Mates in his direct command, then the crews will do what Quartermaster says without questioning it a jot.
