GUEST,SteveG A note to Three Score and Ten (73* d) RE: A note to Three Score and Ten 03 Nov 11


My own take on this is that the only thing that dictates an 'up' and 'down' to seamen in this context would be determined by charts which would have been a luxury to coastal small craft seamen until the 20th century. Also these coastal men spent as much time on estuaries and rivers where 'up' and 'down' is governed not by chart direction but by the river outflow.
