Smack in Church
Super photographs of smacks sailing are on another page. I have concentrated on this page to show details of smacks and their gear. I used many of these shots to help me fit out Alberta. As you will see, many details are designed in slightly different ways on different smacks, but they all work. NEW!! I have started new pages on a theme in response to visitor's requests - links are under the thumbnail pictures below.
If you click on these small, low resolution thumbnail photographs, they will open a larger version of the shot with a description at the top to read while you wait for the 30kb to 70kb shot to load. Click the Photo Page smack to return you to this thumbnail page. Right click on an image to save on your hard disk. If published, please acknowledge Roger Walker who took all of these photographs unless stated otherwise.
