Ahoy, matey! Let's cast anchor and write articles on merchant sail![edit]

All hands on deck! It's the Malahat!

I hope this user page gets you excited about writing articles on old sailing ships.

This article template is to make it easy to create a sailing ship article. It has the Age of Sail infobox template, a few categories, and section headings. (Happy to lend a hand if you leave a note on my talk page.)

First stops for finding an old ship[edit]

  • Google Books. Search for the name and type of your ship and you will find all sorts of stories and snippets we could never, ever have located before the Internet. You'll be amazed how much of the distant past that seemed lost and gone forever is suddenly accessible.
  • If you are looking for maritime materials in an old book, I'm a librarian with really good access to old books and information. Just leave a note on my talk page!
  • So, Aaargh! mateys. Turn to and make sail! :)
