Welcome to Three Decks

We've added a forum

OK, so madness has finally descended. We have add a new forum for all you lovely naval enthusiasts.

Very much in the first flush of youth, so there's not much structure. Expect things to change as we go along. If you have ideas please use the forum's technical group to let me know.


Hello and welcome to the world of sailing navies

Over the last few years Three Decks has grown to become the premier web resource for researching naval history during the Age of Sail. Threedecks.org features detailed information on vessels, crew, shipyards, dockyards and naval actions. As well as background details on the ranks, appointments and nations involved. Even the National Maritime Museum links to us (VERY proud of that one).


If you have any comments, corrections, suggestions, questions or additional information just email me on , or add a comment to a page.


There are currently 24,965 ships, 31,092 seamen, 1,009 actions/battles and countless other items listed on this site.
