Hi beedeesea. Watching these film clips of what sea going was all about is all that is left to us. Most are of the large ocean going vessels so it's nice to see some of the smaller vessels at work.
Channel 4 T.V. did a six part series many years ago on all types of sea going vessels but they never released them to buy. I recorded one episode on VHS tape The Rough Trade which was mainly about the coastal trade from sail to steam it's a great watch.
