    Not only that it would have been gallons, not litres in those days, or even barrels, which would have been worse! Must have all been related to Keith Richards?

Divide that by the 475 crew and you get about, 2100 litres of grog per man. She was away for 6 months so roughly speaking that works out to 12 litres of alcohol per sailer per day. I defy anyone to drink 12 litres of whiskey in a day... every day for a month.

    I'd say they had far too much rum to start with and we're seeing double as they sailed out of Boston.

    As a side note, if you want to understand the hardships of life onboard such a vessel in those times I highly recommend a book called "The Spice Wars". It describes the years when the Poms, the Dutch and the Portuguese were at war over the Indonesian Islands, to retain ownership of the highly prized nutmeg and other spices. It's an eye-opener.
    @planenutz, are you meaning the book Nathanel's Nutmeg ... what a read!!!!
