Thread Name: Gold.Vanity. Can you REALLY sink a ship?
Subject: RE: Gold.Vanity. Can you REALLY sink a ship?
Greg, I somehow think even a cabin boy would be unlikely to go unnoticed under a coracle. And the very name "cabin" boy suggests that you have rather larger coracles than the rest of us (don't boast now ;-)
One possibility of course is that the sinking and the cabin boy's actions are coincidence. The Mary Rose sank in the English Channel in fine weather, for no other reason than that it was badly designed.
