EBarnacle1 Gold.Vanity. Can you REALLY sink a ship? (164* d) RE: Gold.Vanity. Can you REALLY sink a ship? 03 Sep 03


I was recently reading naval history relating to the first Elizabethan era. Attack by swimmers with augers was a standard means of attack in that era. It was probably carried over from earlier naval systems, when ships had fewer [if any] cannon and firearms. It is unlikely that the system would have been used or considered if it were not effective.
