Why did sailors dread being given a "checked shirt?", carve uniform buttons out of cheese, roll cannonballs around the deck? How many women were on board a man-of-war, lashes did a sailor receive for stealing, sailors died of disease and why? Who slept in a cot that doubled as a coffin, got swept off the lavatory by big waves, on board was nicknamed "slushy"? Follow the story of the ship and its crew as this man-of-war sails into battle on the high seas - and find the stowaway!
