Noble Friends, Especially Nautical Types:

I have in the past reported here about the Newport Medieval Ship. To 
recap, this 15th century clinker-built cog was discovered buried in the 
mud at Newport in Wales in 2002. The vessel is claimed to be the largest 
and most complete 15th century ship to survive. It has been undergoing 
preservation since its discovery. You can read about the Newport 
Medieval Ship here on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newport_Ship .

Recently I stumbled across the web site for Friends of the Newport Ship 
which contains a lot of other good stuff about the Ship, particularly 
the pages under "The Ship" on the menu bar. You can reach their site 
with http://newportship.org/ . Do take note of the particularly nice 
painting of how the Newport Ship may have looked, though it shows only 
one mast (it likely had two or three according to the text).

If that isn't enough (can we ever get too much history?), here is a link 
to a 2012 BBC news video clip about the Newport Medieval Ship and its 
preservation efforts: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-17708611 .

Yours Aye,

Lord Mungo Napier, Whose Seasickness is Legendary
