Belvedere handwriting
« on: July 23, 2017, 12:15:07 pm »
Hello - can anyone help with the highlighted word please?



Here's the full page link: https://panoptes-uploads.zooniverse.org/production/subject_location/d7b9c952-bbb1-4012-ad19-6d0f83ec2d53.jpeg
The ship is the Belvedere in 1894

I was expecting something like starboard, or port, or bow, or stern, or waist boat to describe which of their hunting boats made the strike.

Thanks!

I think it is supposed to be a whale's tail.
His art seems to be on par with his handwriting :-X

Great replies - and thank you. I'm happy to go with B for bow boat. Plus a cat picture which turns into a whale tail by magic - you've got to admit, these whaler logs have real entertainment value  8) :D
