    This deadly warship ship served over 33 years in the English Tudor Navy for Henry VIII, seeing front line action in many wars against France, Scotland and Brittany and never sinking. She finally met her demise on July 15th, 1545. While leading the attack on the galleys of the French invansion, she sank in the straits between England and the Isle of Wight. The French said they sunk her with gunfire but eyewitness accounts said she fired all her shots on her one side and was turning to present her massive guns on her other side when a very strong gusts of winds heeled her over strongly and her lower gunports which were left open by the crew, took in water, causing her to sink.

    Modern historians have said that The Mary Rose was a modified and altered too much over the years and had more guns put on along with other upgrades and she became too heavy and increased her draught too much where the lower gunports were just 3 feet from the water line. She was made unseaworthy before the battle. Her experienced crew(about 415) knew she can handle everything but didn't factor in the heavy upgrades and the lower level open gunports doors on a strong turn.

    Some things brought up from the sunken ship.

    Jesus, Backgammon has apparently been around a long time.

    I think in a big wooden box for smaller ones and along the ship on shelves with holes cut into them for the bigger ones.

    No. I'm just kidding Southern. It's why I poked fun at myself with the meme. I just thought it would get more talk. Hey some of the threads hit, some don't. Can't win em all. :)

    Who are these people that fight on boats, Robin? They obviously have nothing going on in their lives.

    Racks called garlands, or even coils of rope on the deck. Some say the term "Brass Monkey" referred to a rack used to hold shot.
