Spars for porcine containment?? How tellingly un-nautical.

By the way, you might enjoy a really well done book called "1421: The Year China Discovered the World" which documents very carefully the exploration of the planet, including Arctic regions and the coasts of North America, by bold Chinese admirals with fleets of gigantic junks under their command. It blows holes all through the grade-school mythology of the Age of Exploration by Europeans.
