Hi EB
Coincidentally I've just been reading through Stan's Bosun's Locker articles and he says what I've always thought, Chanties were very scarce in the North Sea and in the coasters, partly because crews were so small and partly because they were mostly fore and aft rig and didn't need the heaving and hauling. When are we talking about with Peking? Certainly the tall ships into the 20s were still chantying according to Alan Villiers.
