I first showed you the Earl of Pembroke a week or so ago. Tall ships need tall trees to make tall masts! I promise… I went as close as I could to ensure that the masts were made from real trees and not fake lookalike marvels.
Fortunately they don’t build too many wooden ships anymore… so, they shipbuilders don’t hack down vast hardwood forests as they did in the era of naval sail battles! Sometimes progress makes sense… or does it?
