THIS highly acclaimed series aims to provide the finest documentation of individual ships and ship types ever published. It is a radical departure from the usual monograph approach, which concentrates on either the ship's service history, its technical details or external appearance. All of these aspects are included in the 'Anatomy of the Ship', but what makes the series unique is a complete set of superbly executed line drawings - the conventional 3-view type of plan as well as explanatory...

White, as were the insides of the bulwarks and stanchions of the main deck, quarterdeck and poop. The quarterdeck and poop bulkheads of the Martinez-Hidalgo replica were decorated with green arches, and white points as shown in the Llibre del Consolaty dels Fets maritims, 1502 edition. Red paint was used on the wales and vertical futtock riders. The planking of the hull below the waterline was protected from barnacles and shipworm by a coat of tar and tallow. The freeboard planks were treated...

A detail of one of the two naos in the altarpiece La Vida de Santa Ursula, painted by Joan de Reixach in 1450.

The curved transverse beam for securing the anchor cables is visible through the arch of the forecastle. The planking below the forecastle is clinker fashion, in contrast to the carvel-built hull. Note that the shroud have no ratlines, although the man seen climbing to the...

The Voyage

The ships of Columbus's small fleet sailed from the port of Palos, Huelva, southern Spain, on 2 August 1492, following the ebb tide along the river Odiel to the Saltes sand bar. They set sail for the ocean passage at 0800hrs the following day, at a speed of 4 knots, heading for the Canary Islands. The passage to the Canaries took six days, in the course of which the Pinta required a jury repair to her rudder. The nearest port to Spain was Lan-zarote, which at the time belonged to the Spanish...

Anatomy Of The Ship

The precise details of the ships of Christopher Columbus - the Santa Maria, Ni a and Pinta - remain lost to historians, for the ships were built before the first manuals of shipbuilding were written, and no documentation or illustration has survived. Nevertheless, extensive research has allowed the construction of a number of replicas over the years, and those built in Spain in 1892 and 1927 are regarded as among the most realistic. The replicas built as part of the 500th anniversary...

The Caravels

The Diccionario de la Real Academia de la Lengua Espa ola defines the caravel as a vessel 'very swift, long and narrow, with only one deck, a beak at the prow and a flat poop, with three masts for lateen sails and some with yards for square sails on the main and foremasts'. According to the Encyclopedia of Ships and Seafaring edited by Peter Kemp Stanford Maritime Press , caravels became the preferred ships of explorers of the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, mainly because they were...
