LIFE AT SEA

gfx An average sailing ship would have a crew of ca. 8-10 men. The crew had their own room in front of the mast. The oldest of the sailors had the privilege of first choose his berth. The sailor kept his bedding in a canvas sack. In the small trunk he kept all his other personal belongings, His clothes, book, a knife, some money and perhaps a watch. The sailor’s chests were used for sitting on when eating, An A.B. (able bodied seaman) would also get his own stool.

The photos show the crew on 5 of the Skudeneshavn ships, As well as 2 from Haugesund.
