Scott NC Posted January 13 Author Share Posted January 13 There's a saying... "secure for sea". Can you imagine cannonballs rolling all over a pitching deck in high seas in the middle of a battle? No doubt a lit cannon would break loose just then. I remember on our ship, in my office, my desks legs were set into pipes welded to the floor to keep it from becoming a projectile. The mess hall was entertaining in heavey weather. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
