Just belatedly read your re-read review of The Surgeon's Mate
I came upon O'Brien's books late in the series , but the delay resulted in my taking Nutmeg Of Consolation along to the Carribea. I read much of it in the mizzentop of Astrid a century-old brig running down the Windwards from English Harbor to Fort de France, where, comparing the text to the maze of running rigging it dawned on me that this guy knew how to evolve sail
This years epiphany is that roller reefing has made passenger tall ships both user friendly and very comfortable to cruise. Thanks to sails that furl into spars, a full rigged 400 foot five master can now sail in all weathers with half the crew it took to manage the 120 foot brig.
