But darn it, why does every cannonball have to explode? Haven't these dweebs ever heard of shot, as opposed to shell? O, I know--it's more lively & it's easier to fake. But it isn't even close to accurate.]
You are right.Why does no-one get chainshot wrapped around his leg? What kind of trajectory does barshot have, anyway? ;-)
And as for the sails...have you read that bit in "The Making of Emma" about filming the storm scene in a field in Oxfordshire?
