Weekly Quote

A quite lengthy, but good quote from the Mariner's Book of Days:

Many are the obstacles to the attainment of a proficiency in drawing Marine subjects, particularly as it is not only requisite that a person desirous of excelling in this Art should possess a knowledge of the construction of a Ship, or what is denominated "Naval Architecture" together with the proportion of masts and yards, the width, depth and cut of the sails, &c.; but he should likewise be acquainted with Seamanship. ~John Thomas Serres
