That the bell rope was not attached directly to the bell clapper suggests that in those early days the ships bell was not used to mark the passage of the hours and half-hours. Long ago time at sea was measured by the trickle of sand through a half - hour glass. The sand glass on the deck was usually next to a bell (ships strike) and the ships boy (called a Grommet) was responsible for turning the glass over and ringing the ships bell at the same time so that the helmsman could make sure he turned his glass at exactly the same. The ships bell had many uses; to indicate the time aboard the ship and hence to regulate the sailors duty watches; for safety in foggy conditions; signaling; used in gunnery control; the Dutch Navy of the 17th century rang the bell as an order to open fire; as boat gongs indicating officers and dignitaries boarding or leaving the ship and one of the most memorable traditions for sailors and their families involves the use of ships bells as baptismal fonts for shipboard christenings (the name of the baptized child would usually be engraved on the bell).
Wooden pirate ship models are a way in which modelers can express their creativity as well as their copious building skills. A gentle touch should be used when handling wooden pirate ship models. The pirate ship should be put in a position where handling such a delicate item is discouraged. On higher shelves this model ship runs a significantly lower risk of being carelessly pushed and otherwise cracked or broken. Wooden pirate ship models are often purchased with a glass case which is a wonderful protection method. Wooden pirate ship models can be constructed with fewer parts and with a hull made from sturdy plastic this allows for greater handling. Many wooden pirate ship models are complicated in design and build. With so many tiny details and minuscule enhancements this particular model is thought to be harder to craft. The interconnected thread of parts can be particularly difficult to fix if just one simple part goes missing or is damaged. Wood pirate ship models are glowing gems in a model enthusiasts collection.

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.
