Real sailors would use Art as an anchor or just throw him overboard
with the rest of the trash.
They'd probably keelhaul him first.
That practice, used by the British Royal Navy, went out when steamships
came in, idiot. No American sailor has been keelhauled in 150 years.
She means the American navy, dumbass.
LOL! We never used it, jackass.
...yes they do. I have photographic evidence !
ROTFL! That guy is a stuntman, not a sailor, dumb shit. With keelhauling, they start at the bow and drag the guy to the stern. He's amidships.
DAMN, YOU ARE STUPID.
...no Arty, you've got it wrong again. That' most certainly is a
sailor and he's wearing the standard keelhauling uniform.
(you should be familiar with that)
The keelhauling rig in the photo is a standard Halsey type 3 swing arm
installation and they're always installed mid ship on both destroyers
and carriers (with the exception of submarines) as per Navy
regulations. Surprised you didn't know all this. Weren't you allegedly
in the Navy ?
He's got the process wrong, too. Keelhauling went from side to side,
not bow to stern (which would probably have killed everyone sent down
the track--it was a punishment, not an execution). The rope was
_dropped_ at the bow and worked amidships where the guest of honor
awaited (you might as well go with the flow when passing submerged
They had a keelhauling in the final season of "Black Sails". It was gruesome. Imagine being dragged along the bottom of a ship covered in barnacles.
And, yes, it was side to side.
The crew hauling the ropes had a choice. If they liked the guy, they
could be quick. He would emerge horribly lacerated from said
barnacles, but undrowned. If they did not like him, they could take
their time; his wounds would be less, but the water content of his
lungs greater and he would feel no pain. Ah, the good old days of
aa #2278 Never mind "proof." Where is your evidence?
