Scandinavians developed Viking ships; one of the best ships built in Europe between 700 AD to the late 1000s and in 1300 A.D. introduced the stern rudder. The Mediterranean shipbuilders developed full-rigged sailing ship models in 1450 A.D. From there to the early 1800s ships used were constructed mostly using the plank on frame method rudder control and full-rigged sails. Galleons model ships launched to sea in the 1500s and used to the 1800s. The most famous ship models were the packet and clipper ships. Packet ships appeared in the Atlantic Ocean in the early 1800s followed by the Clipper ships during the 1840s. Both of these models were used as import ships.
Since the 15th century ships bells have played both a practical and symbolic role in the life of naval vessels and their crews. All good ship models must have a bell on board. All really good ship models should also have an ornate belfry - depending on the era of the ship model. There is documentary evidence that at least one English royal vessel the Rodcogge de la Tour 1414 had a brass bell \"to mark the watches of the sailors\". Other mentions of the shipboard bell were on the British ship Grace Dieu about 1485. Some ten years later an inventory of the English ship Regent reveals that this ship carried two watch bells. Originally the bell was fixed to a moveable beam which was activated by a lever or a wheel to which was attached a bell rope that dropped to the main-deck.
Turn off the builders and watch the niche market we occupy get even smaller my friends. The reason DISTRIBUTORS exist is to represent and consolidate numerous manufacturers products under one roof providing an inventory warranty and technical support system often in a different country or continent than the manufacturer. This addition to the supply chain should enable smaller retailers to improve their competitiveness. One frustration in this system with todays emphasis on internet sales is the distributor who competes with the retailers he is supposed to be supporting. This can lead to reduced supply increased prices and an unfair (to the consumer) marketplace. And while the global marketplace has allowed us all shorten the delivery cycle and to become more price conscious and price savvy it has also become a thorn in the side of the retailer particularly the small business person.
On the very edge where the horizon meets the sky a storm is slowly forming turning the waters of the ocean a dark gray. Dark clouds threaten to erupt with great deluges of rain. In a desperate bid to outmaneuver the storm a single ship sails ever faster. Unlike other ships the flag of this vessel is a pitch black color. With a bright white hue the jolly roger is emblemized on the flag itself with a large toothy smile. This flag confirms that the small ship is in fact a pirate ship. Carrying huge amounts of cargo while still maintaining optimal speed is not a problem for these ships. In many ways the pirate ship represents the adventure one can have on the high seas as well as the danger and the intrigue that is ever-present.
