After having tabbed over "Attached Thermometer" about 12000 times on the Unalga it's going to take a while to change my habits. I keep getting to the last box with one item still left to enter.  I'm like an old horse on a milk run  :D

The Jamestown ran out of coal. They were using about a half a ton per day moored in Sitka Alaska.

Then they stopped recording the amount used and the amount on hand for as far ahead as I checked.

It seems the ship's crew is particularly disobedient and unruly.

I can't read the last paragraph perfectly but here's the gist of it

 
Quote
M Quenlan Cap ~ by recommendation of ~ of Officer  x to Seaman, for "scandalous conduct on shore.

...

Found this chart in Wiki article on Petty Officers.  Captains of Tops and other parts of the ship are junior petty officers.  It's interesting in that it divides the table of organization into layers as to the percentage of prize money given them.

A seaman's sentence was reduce from 30 days to 20 days on bread and water because of his voluntary return and other positive actions.
